One of the things that mediation and collaborative divorce both use are a panel of neutral professionals. Neutral professionals are neutral financial advisors, neutral child specialists, and neutral divorce coaches. Each of these individuals plays a role by helping us through the settlement process. The divorce coach helps deal with the children who perhaps don’t know how to understand what’s going on. The neutral financial adviser is able to deal with both parties and, not representing any one party, discuss the finances and the tax situation. The divorce coach is able to help the parties learn to communicate during this difficult process so they can each speak up about their concerns and why they need the things that they do. These neutral professionals help us get through the process and in the end it costs less than it would with the attorneys trying to handle all those different issues.
