No one falls in love and enters a marriage thinking that they will end up in a divorce. However, divorce is more common than we would like to believe. Stats Canada reports that 71,000 couples divorced in 2012 which is approximately 40% of marriages. That is an astounding number. The good news is that the majority of families are able to settle out of the courts; but many of them needed support from mediators, lawyers and counsellors.
So why is this happening in our society?
Stats Canada reports that the most common reasons for divorce are:
Relationship “runs out of steam”/fall out of love
Physical, psychological, or emotional abuse
Going through a divorce can be emotionally draining on the adults as well as the children. However, there are ways to divorce well…… Collaborative Divorce is one of them.
Collaborative Divorce offers separating couples an inter-disciplinary way of dealing with divorce during a very stressful and challenging time in their lives. It is a process that helps protect the dignity, integrity, and long-term best interests of all family members.
In the Collaborative Divorce process, the separating couple and their lawyers sign a written agreement to work together at resolving the issues without going to court.
This approach is based on a team effort – where you, your lawyers and your coaches work together to resolve whatever is in dispute – whether it relates to support, division of assets or parenting of the children. You have available to you specially trained lawyers, divorce coaches, child specialists and financial advisors who can form the team as needed.
What is most important is that you and your spouse are willing to enter into a dialogue to resolve your separation issues with a good measure of honesty and respect.
