he is primary wage earner, history of mental health issues, sleep issues (cant ge to work on time), not a close relationship with the kids. it seems he would get more custody this way than through the courts. Is this true? I see no benefit to myself. I believe any guardian or mental health person looking out for the kids rather than being a neutral would agree. collaboration is so neutral it brushes this short comings under the rug. is my intuition correct here? arent collaborative attorneys required to look out for kids best interest as well?
Collaborative divorce is an alternative to contested divorce that involves collaborative sessions between the parties and their lawyers.
Child custody involves decisions about who will be responsible for a child, including parental rights, for both married and unmarried parents, and adoptions.
