WHO ARE THE CUSTOMERS? WHAT ARE THEIR NEEDS?
The mission of Divorce Alternative Center is to offer an alternative to the expensive divorce attorney costs to the fast-growing population of couples who find themselves facing the overwhelming expense adjoining the decision to divorce.
In some cases it is only one of the parties that wants the divorce, while in others it may be both; but in either case, there are almost no reasonable options short of entering into the legal process of Family Law Litigation and the extensive and ongoing attorney fees that entails.
The Divorce Rate has now surpassed 50%, for 2nd marriages, it has passed 60%. For 3rd marriages, the divorce rate is now reporting statistics past 70%. With these terribly concerning growth rates, this just reaffirms the urgency to create a system, plan and place that is focused specifically on contributing to healthier marital success, and to supporting more wellness through what may ultimately be the marital dissolution. It is long overdue that there is now a place that is focused on the wellness of the children getting shattered in the aftermath of these grueling divorces attached to these astounding statistics.
The children of divorce are proven to have far less self-esteem than those who come from nuclear families. The results and ramifications in studies of these children after divorce are worth paying attention to, and align with statistics regarding much of what is causing rising problems in our youth today.
The amicable ending is critical, although in our society, we are losing site of why it is so vital to sever relationships with some form of health intact.
There are the obvious reasons why this makes sense in that scars can be more damaging then expected, and most likely are permanent. If there are children involved, even in the smoothest of divorce situations, just the longevity of the divorce has a tremendous impact on the child (or children) that many parents do not realize because they are so immersed in the actual logistics and personal emotions of the divorce. The financial drain of the divorce also has lasting effects on the children that sometimes are not being addressed as well. Mostly, when there are the two divorce attorneys, by the mere definition of the process, there have to be two sides. There have to be winners and losers, and the kids will usually have to be caught somewhere in the middle.
There are also couples that have divorced, and cannot seem to master co-parenting without creating major pain and suffering for themselves and the children involved. Many of these parents (and step parents) find that only by going back to court can they attempt to solve issues that are complex, or simple. Issues regarding changing schools, whether to get contacts or glasses, braces, go to sports camp, travel out of country, or even just getting a haircut, can often be "taken to court" as the means to get a decision made. This is not only financially draining, but the stress filters directly to the children keeping them in a state of compromised health.
There are situations where restraining orders have been put into effect due to the inability for parents to calm issues down, but without real need for actual restraint to be maintained from one's own children. There is just no easy way to take the next steps to get these orders removed, or when one does, pride will often keep the battle in court alive.
Collaborative Divorce Attorneys have been introduced as a recent model for amicable dissolution, when in fact, this is not a proven model for success, and in fact, may be proving to the contrary. The expense is not cheaper in that both parties still pay their own attorneys, and in addition, they each pay coaches that they see together to get along, they pay child coaches if needed, they pay their attorneys to get together with them, and without them, and bills add up that they are not even aware of because so many people are "getting along" in all of these "feel good meetings", that it can be draining and stressful. This can cause more arguing, less results, more pointing fingers, with less accountability. It doesn't appear to have the sound logic as to how it provides the resolution for the couple such that the cost is kept low, and the dissolution and health of the couple (and children) is provided for by the design of a custom solution, rather than a cookie-cutter template designed solely for profit.
This Center offers a speicific team working on a customized solution on behalf of the health of each member in the relationship. A solution is designed, then professionals from our Center are hand selected to match the case that calls their services to action for the greater good.
