Affordable Divorce: A Tale of Three Processes

Contributed by Ronald Scott. John and Mary have been married for 15 years, and both have good jobs. They have 2 great kids, ages 8 and 13. Their finances are typical for a middle class family; a home with some equity, retirement accounts, some credit card debt, car loans. They have started to put away some money for the kids' college education. But as happens in about 50 percent of the marriages, they find themselves divorcing.

What will their relationship with each other be like? What will the divorcing process do to them? Facing not only the end of their marriage, but the start of their new lives, John and Mary face an initial decision of what process to resolve their marital issues: Mediation, Litigation or Collaboration.
