Divorce can be a challenging and emotional ordeal, but it doesn't have to lead to a toxic fallout. In this episode of Let's Talk Divorce Conversations, host Stewart Andrew Alexander converses with Jeffrey P. Wasserman, a seasoned family law attorney with over half a century's worth of experience. Wasserman enlightens us on the misconceptions surrounding divorce, the advantages of opting for the collaborative law process, and how this empowers clients to take charge of their futures.

Wasserman notes that a common misunderstanding about divorce is the notion that individuals will find justice in the courtroom, which is not always a reality. He also points out that many perceive lawyers as adversaries, resulting in an overwhelming number of unrepresented parties who pursue divorce independently without a lawyer's assistance. This could lead to serious complications, given the intricate legal aspects of divorce.

He further elaborates that collaborative law is a client-centric process, enabling clients to make informed decisions regarding their cases. Unlike the confrontational nature of litigation, where lawyers are perceived as warriors battling against their client's spouse, collaborative law promotes peace. It allows the legal team to work towards solutions that are most beneficial for the entire family. Through the collaborative process, clients can influence how issues are resolved, with solutions not strictly bound by legal principles.

Opting for the collaborative law process over litigation provides several benefits. Clients retain control over the process, their privacy is upheld, and the timeline is more flexible. Moreover, collaborative law proves to be a more cost-efficient option compared to litigation, which can be protracted and costly.

This episode is a valuable resource for anyone undergoing a divorce or acquainted with someone in that predicament. Discover how collaborative law can guide you through this difficult journey with enhanced control and diminished toxicity.
