Ongoing Collaborative Process
Not every member of your professional team attends each meeting. Ongoing meetings will be configured to provide the professional input you need to address and resolve the outstanding issues. You may meet alone with your attorney for legal advice and planning. At other times, you may meet with your spouse and the other attorney for analysis, option-generating, and decision-making sessions. You may meet with your mental health professional(s) for assistance in managing the emotional turbulence of divorce, communicating effectively, and developing a parenting plan that addresses the needs of your children. You may elect to have a child specialist meet with your children to assess their needs, to bring their concerns into the discussion, to help you minimize any negative impact of your divorce, and to alert you to any vulnerabilities. You may meet with a financial professional to help identify and value assets as well as provide guidance on tax and cash flow issues.
