Avoid contention in family court: Learn a negotiation process to guide divorcing parents to reach mutual agreement

Parties in any situation experience more buy-in when they are part of the decision-making process. This is especially true for separating and divorcing couples. Without buy-in and mutual agreement between all parties, the entire family court process can be highly contentious, adversarial, and stressful.

For nearly 20 years, Dr. Marlene has worked within the family court system as a psychotherapist, evaluator, and private consultant. She has witnessed the emotional toll that contention takes on the parents and children – and on the professionals who “do battle” in family court.

In this presentation, attendees – professionals in the family court system – learn an easy negotiation process they can use every day, with every client.

Attendees will learn:

  • Dr. Marlene’s proven process to guide clients – separating or divorcing couples – to reach their own decisions and conclusions.
  • 3 considerations to guide clients to avoid contention and reach mutual agreement, especially where it concerns the children’s wellbeing.
  • How to guide separating and divorcing parents to own the process – and the outcomes.
