"I was pleased with the process and will recommend it to anyone I know who is...thinking about separation or divorce"
"It was very emotional but also empowering for me to negotiate the settlement that I felt was fair for both parties."
"It was a positive process for me. I actually found the self-confidence to stand up for myself and verbalize my own needs."
"I was pleased that we were able to negotiate what felt fair to both of us."
"I was pleased that it actually cost less than I figured."
"Well, we can pay people to fight for each of us, or we can fight and pay people to referee, or we can work it out and pay people to help us. I'd rather do the last one!"
"I'm really glad we chose this process. For our family and for each other, it allows us to have sustainable amicability."
"You listened well to me, and my upset and my needs. You handled things in an orderly, thorough and gentle manner. I feel I got every penny's worth..."
"The collaborative process provided three significant benefits: (1) the private nature in which it is performed; (2) less contentiousness and therefore, less anxiety-ridden; and (3) the outcome
seemed fair for both parties. You embodied confidence and compassion. These are two traits which were necessary to help me feel comfortable and focused through this painful situation."
"... Made me feel important, and that everything was done as your highest priority... I like the collaborative process. It is clear and when it is not clear, questioning the problem brings an answer"
"Thank you for everything you have done for my family and me. I can finally get some sleep!"
"... Divorce is difficult, and with the passage of time, and all of your help and support, my life is happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
"It's done. I can sleep. I can laugh. I can play. All thanks to you."
