Advocating for Children in the Collaborative Divorce Process

Advocating for Children in the Collaborative Divorce Process While divorce is often the best choice for everyone involved, including the children, the impact on them is undeniable. They are the ones who had no say in the decision, the ones who shuttle back and forth between houses and live out of a suitcase.
