What makes a couple ideal candidates for collaborative divorce?
Amy Zylman Shimalla’s Answer:
The parties have to be willing to be honest and transparent with one another. That is really the only limitation. They do not have to like one another. It is not all kumbaya. Rather, it is a very productive and efficient way to work through both straightforward and very complex issues getting right to the point, and problem solving from day one.
