Erica – My Divorce Story

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.
