At last year’s State Bar of Texas Collaborative Law Course, Jennifer Leister and Carie Silvestri presented “#Truth: Children speak the truth about divorce.” Building off that presentation, Carie and Jennifer and a committee of collaborative professionals from throughout the state, including Dr Honey Sheff, Melinda Eitzen, JD, Curtis Harrison, JD, and Mickey Gaylor, JD, interviewed judges, custody evaluators, amicus attorneys, guardians ad litem, and collaborative MHPs about the effects of collaborative and litigated divorces on children.
This advanced collaborative divorce course shares unique insights regarding the impact of divorce on children from various views within the judicial system. This presentation will challenge many long-held beliefs about the impact of the judicial system on families and children. Unique insight from judges and other court-appointed professionals will educate collaborative divorce professionals about the various tools available to help them deal with the impact of divorce on children and understand the benefits of collaborative divorce compared to other legal processes for untying the knot and protecting children from the destructive effects of a litigated divorce.
