“Michael Jordan Fouls Out of Marriage”
When celebrities file for divorce, their photos are splashed on the covers of the supermarket tabloids underneath sensational headlines. The tabloids contain in-depth articles with chronologies of the relationship, an analysis of “what went wrong,” and quotes from someone with psychic powers. However, after the initial announcement, you rarely hear any news about the divorce proceedings and, several months later, when the divorce is finalized, the same tabloid will print a brief mention of the divorce on their “Passages” page, without any details of the divorce.
If celebrities, the most attention seeking group in our society, can manage to complete their divorces privately, then why can’t the rest of us? The little known truth is that there is a method for us non-celebrities to complete divorces privately, an option that is ideal for many of your patients – Collaborative Divorce.
