Divorcing Collaboratively Leads to Better Sense of Well-Being

May 15, 2019

Divorcing collaboratively can increase your sense of well-being.  Research conducted by the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals shows that those who divorce collaboratively have a higher level of satisfaction with their overall well-being than those who divorce in the traditional manner.  The study surveyed 1,186 individuals who divorced in one of three ways: do-it-yourself, traditional court process with at least one professional, and collaboratively.  Eight-one present (81%) of collaborative participants reported general satisfaction with their own well-being, compared with 71% of traditional divorce participants.  The result is not particularly surprising, because collaborative negotiation allows divorcing spouses to work together for the best outcome for the family.
