“Divorce = Growth?” You Ask.“Sometimes It Can,” Says Collaborative ...

Palma Joy Strand- ... To begin with, Andrea works with the entire team of professionals.  She is a key member of the team:  It is essential that everyone knows the legal parameters, options, and potential outcomes if settlement fails.  (I especially enjoyed her comment that it can be useful to know if a particular judge is paying stiff alimony to an ex-wife.)  But she doesn’t call the shots.  Each professional is committed to sharing information with the others and working together to problem solve.
