The old maxim goes: If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. For divorcing spouses, that may actually constitute legal advice in these days where Internet and social media sites have become a significant part of many people’s daily lives.

One of the things I like best about working in the collaborative divorce model is the interdisciplinary team approach. As I explain to clients, we can bring in a divorce coach (divorce therapist), a financial neutral, and a child specialist—all trained in the collaborative model. I tell my clients, “I am the most expensive player on the team. Why not work with less expensive specialists who do this type of work every single day?”

I think that the reason many couples divorce is that they‎ “stop speaking the same language.” I therefore call the divorce coaches “the translators.”

It is riskier to litigate high income cases in Court because there is less guidance from the law. Much of the statutory law applies to middle to low income families so when you have high income cases, the judges are given great discretion when they structure awards. This leads to inconsistency and therefore great risks as one judge may greatly differ from another.
