I'm not a huge fan of collaborative divorce. You know your spouse better than anyone. Is he simply attempting to avoid conflict that he has become tired of, or is he the controlling kind who always goes his own way? If the latter, your wasting your time and money on a procedure that will achieve nothing. I advise consulting with several attorneys for their opinions, and some deep soul searching on your own part. Please feel free to visit my website which discusses the various divorce procedures available in Ohio.
