Privacy Of Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce offers parties privacy, one of the reasons Roy Disney (of the Disney fortune) is choosing the collaborative process, according to this article in The Republican.

This, most likely, will be all that the public hears in the media about the divorce until the Disneys' final judgment is entered in court some months from now. The reason for the silence is because collaborative divorce offers a couple privacy as well as the ability to control the timing and outcome of their divorce. It also allows them to control the process.

Instead of appearing before judges in courtrooms and stenographers in board rooms, the Disneys will meet in a series of private, respectful four-way meetings with their attorneys. They will most likely hire financial experts as part of their collaborative team who will help craft a thoughtful and fair agreement, and they may engage coaches who will help them to better communicate with one another through the meetings.
