"In mediation collaborative divorces, there is often a question of support for one of the two clients.Naturally, the support is often a question of money, and money always comes with highly charged emotions.This presentation and round table discussion focused on how to provide information on finances during negotiations when it comes to a divorce while understanding our client's emotions and mindsets.There is intensive focus on communication when negotiating support – what tools of communication work well with two divorcing clients is paramount when assisting clients in agreeing upon support," said Sacks.
