In a litigated divorce, people often fantasize about their day in court—the reality is that the family law courts do not enjoy the time or money to consider your case the way you’ve imagined it. They're not going to meet your children, and they have heard it all when it comes to how badly you've been treated by your spouse. You are giving power you have to decide your financial and parenting future over to a third party stranger, and you will be forced to abide by those decisions. The cruelest divorce myth is that getting “your day in court” is good. The next most cruel divorce myth is that you'll come out of it with your former lifestyle intact. It’s my intention to change the world of marital and divorce financial planning with this book and with the work we do with clients. It will take couples rejecting traditional position bargaining and accepting understanding the nature and characteristics of what they’ve built together. They will then need to look at the worth of the marital estate and start negotiating from a place of knowledge and understanding of exactly what’s at stake. Divorce is not exclusively a woman’s or man’s transition, it’s a family’s transition. To help families preserve the assets that they alone built, we have developed the A.G.R.E.E.™ negotiating process to get to a fair and equitable settlement. Read on to understand a new way of getting safely through the transition of divorce. Your future financial freedom depends on it.
