Even in a collaborative divorce—which, by definition, is one in which both spouses seek to reach consensus through negotiation rather than litigation—it can be easy to do things that may undermine the process. If you have chosen the collaborative route, you did so because it was emotionally and potentially financially less costly and creates far less stress than a contested court battle, especially when children are involved.
For mediation to be successful, both parties must be willing to work together diligently and honestly to reach important decisions about the divorce. When spouses have trouble communicating (something that is common among divorcing couples), the mediation process can be jeopardized.
