Collaborative Practice San Diego Plans Divorce With Respect Week Observance

Divorce can be hard, brutal and leave hard feelings that may last for a lifetime. Collaborative Practice San Diego (CPSD) believes it does not have to be this away and so is planning a Divorce with Respect Week observance for Oct. 30- Nov. 5. 

Along with our statewide organization, Collaborative Practice California (CPCal), members of CPSD are offering free 30-minute divorce consultations to people who are looking at a divorce. During these private meetings, divorce professionals will go over questions about divorce and how it can be handled with respect and avoid going to court.

Those going to these free sessions are not obligated to hire anyone or even go through with a divorce. The whole idea is to help people understand the process and know they can separate without creating hard feelings.

“Divorce with Respect means both people are able to end their marriage without being upset or angry. Divorce with Respect means you treat each other as responsible adults and you try to find adult solutions,” said CPSD President Leslie Ryland. “This is especially important if you have children because it means you both work together to do what is best for your kids.”

Divorce with Respect Week starts Oct. 30 in San Diego with Collaborative Divorce Day. This event is part of the International Academy of Collaborative Professional’s 22nd Annual Forum: Lighting the Way Together event. The overall event is the biggest gathering of collaborative and family practice professionals in the world.
