Much of what you will need to know and ask about for the collaborative divorce attorney will be the same as for a regular attorney.

The main difference here in this relatively new area of divorce support is that the spouses are in agreement that they wish to proceed amicably. Since both parties cooperate in furnishing and sharing all needed information regarding finances, assets, custody, support, alimony, assets, and debts, typically far less time—and money—is spent coming to a mutual agreement.

An amicable divorce like this is the ideal situation and for many people, this method works well. Usually, at the outset of negotiations, both attorneys and spouses sign a written agreement stating that if a mutual agreement is not able to be reached or contentions arise, that the attorneys involved will withdraw, leaving the spouses to hire lawyers more experienced in litigious proceedings.


About Laura Aiello

Laura Aiello is a Divorce Strategist Coach for people who are facing the drastic life change of ending a relationship and want to do it in a holistic, growth-oriented way.

As an author and speaker, as well as coach, she believes in educating people on the decision making process, the “job” of divorce and, most importantly, how the challenges presented can be used to create a fuller, more realized life.

As a survivor of domestic violence, Laura understands the full implications of leaving a harmful relationship and the glorious opportunity that doing so can present.

Starting over from scratch in mid-life, she was able to recreate her life, rising to serve on the executive team of one of the largest fitness companies in the U.S. and eventually finding real love in a new, healthy marriage.

After parting ways with the corporate life, she took the bold step of reinventing herself yet again, getting certified as a coach and combining her love of health and wellness with her experience in high conflict divorce.

Bringing these elements together give her the unique edge her clients are looking for when faced with the end of their marriage – and the beginning of their new life.
