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.
