'Never cut what you can untie.'
That sentiment by the French writer Joseph Joubert expresses my philosophy toward inter-personal relationships. I view myself as a problem-solver. The Collaborative Process is the best tool I have discovered for that goal. It recognizes that, in a divorce, it is your family and your future that is involved and that you and your spouse are in the best position to make sound, mutually beneficial choices.
