Speaker Thomas Marks
Lee talks with Thomas Marks about why a collaborative divorce is a good option for many couples who want to keep their divorce civil, out of the courts and keep their settlement details out of the public domain. They explore the roles for each of the different professionals involved including the attorneys and the neutrals. They also discuss options for clients whose divorce is more simple and their options for keeping costs down. The discussion centers around why keeping the divorce proceedings amicable benefits everyone and how the collaborative process tries to make that happen.
