Divorce is messy, and both spouses will probably experience intense feelings through the process of ending a relationship. It's unlikely that both spouses will walk away from the process feeling like they received everything they wanted, but, a collaborative divorce allows the couple to retain the power to decide how to proceed with the essential divorce issues without third-party intervention (i.e., the judge.)
