Is the Collaborative Process Fair Between Couples

I’ve been asked can a collaborative process be fair, when one party is more sophisticated than the other. Here’s the deal, there’s always a power imbalance, whether you go through litigation, mediation or collaborative process. Problem is a lot of those power imbalances are not addressed in the litigation process, however in the collaborative process, the team of professionals pay attention to the parties needs.

We got the mental health professionals, who support and empower clients in there emotionally needs. We’ve got the financial expert that explain and educates the client that’s not sophisticated than the finances to understand what the financial circumstances are, and together as a team we make sure that the parties understand, and they make a sound decisions for themselves.
