However, the actual process of divorce can be one of preserving many things that do not have to be lost; including the well-being of your children, your emotional and financial well-being and even the quality of your relationship with your soon-to-be ex spouse. If you are facing divorce, getting a successful outcome may depend on your ability to focus on preserving the things that matter the most to you. If you are a parent, it is likely that the impact of the divorce on your children is your primary concern. It is true that a divorce can have a significant impact on your children. However, children can be very resilient and it is possible to preserve the hopes and dreams that you have for your children if you are able to select a divorce process that keeps your children out of the middle and focuses on their needs going forward. Similarly, if you are concerned about your emotional well-being, it is possible to choose a divorce process that allows you to get the help you need in adjusting to your new life. Finally, if your financial stability is your main concern, you need a process that allows you to create a stable financial future. One of the key features of the Collaborative Divorce Process is that it is designed to give you the tools you need to preserve the things that matter the most to you.   In the Collaborative Divorce Process, most couples work with a team of professionals so that you can preserve the things that matter the most to you.  In a Collaborative Divorce, you can have a neutral Child Specialist to help you make sure that the needs of the children are central to all of the other decisions in the divorce. You can also have a financial expert on the team to help you find a better financial solution and to help you manage your finances better in the future. In addition, you can select a divorce coach to help you, and your spouse, address the communication and emotional issues that will help you build a better future. Finally, you and your spouse can each have Collaborative Attorneys; legal professionals who will work on your behalf for settlement purposes only. Because Collaborative Attorneys focus only on settlement, you will be able to have someone to work on your behalf, without creating unnecessary acrimony.
