I'm honored to announce that effective January 1, 2019, I begin my term as the President of the New York Association of Collaborative Professionals. The fact that I’m taking on this new role in 2019 means a lot to me. Exactly 10 years ago, my 2009 New Year’s resolution was that I would stop taking new litigated divorce cases and I would work, instead, with clients who were committed to resolving their family law matters outside of court. Below, I reflect back on my journey to becoming a collaborative attorney and look toward my goals as President of the leading organization of collaborative divorce professionals in the New York metropolitan area.
My first article this month is based on the recent headlines announcing that neither Jeff Bezos nor Justin Bieber have a prenuptial agreement. I discuss what you can do if you married without a prenup.
In my second article I discuss that when millennials decide to divorce, they are making conscious decisions to avoid the nasty, litigated divorces that their parents subjected them to. They know that’s not what they want for their family. Instead, they’re looking for guidance about how to divorce from the media, pop culture, literature and celebrities.
This month, I'm also sharing a podcast about one of the many decisions you'll have to make when ending your marriage: which divorce process will you choose? In this podcast, I discuss the mediation approach to divorce.
