Erica and her husband divorced after three years of marriage. They had no children and Erica had worked throughout the relationship. They used the collaborative process for their divorce.
What I wish I had known:
That I was going to be ok. That I am not the only one dealing with the sadness and shame of facing a divorce.
The low point:
Talking about money and what the settlement should be was devastating but my husband and I chose to drive those negotiations whilst my lawyer ensured it all sounded fare and legally correct. This was the kindest way for us.
The certainty that I did the right thing:
We are both happy….
One thing I would do differently:
Talk to people a lot more than I did.
