-- Marriage is supposed to last forever, but at least half the marriages in California end in divorce. Just as couples carefully plan their weddings, if divorce occurs, it should also be planned. There are many choices that spouses have to end their marriages and transition their family. As the effects of divorce impact the children and can affect the divorcing spouses far into the future, the choice of how to divorce should not be impulsive, but carefully chosen.
Collaborative Practice California, the statewide resource for collaborative practice groups in California, has designed the Divorce Options Workshops to inform couples about all their divorce choices, including peaceful divorce through mediation, collaborative or cooperative divorce, and court litigation. The Divorce Options workshop provides unbiased information which helps divorcing spouses deal with issues of guilt, anger, and grief, and to move forward with their transition from married to single life. The workshops are a community service for those who want to learn more about the process of divorce.
Each Divorce Options Workshop features legal, financial, and psychological divorce professionals to describe the different, interconnecting issues of divorce because dissolution of the marriage is a legal process involving the division of property and money, and the parenting of children. With information gained from the Divorce Options Workshop, couples can more intelligently and respectfully plan their divorce through the process that best suits them.
