You’re a fierce advocate for your child, a cause that’s important to you, or a member of your staff.
But when it comes to your own needs – just the thought of having to step up and negotiate for the things you want (and need) makes you break out in a cold sweat.
And now that you’re getting a divorce, that’s exactly what you’ll need to do!
Otherwise, not only will you risk winding up with a deal that’s good for your ex and not for you, but you’ll also have to live with the fact that you allowed that to happen!
This online, self-paced program will teach you how to formulate your negotiation strategy before your divorce gets underway, enabling you to effectively communicate your wants and needs with confidence.
You'll also learn the elements that make up a comprehensive divorce agreement (in the areas of parenting, child support, alimony, and property division), the issues and challenges divorcing couples often face, and negotiation options that can be used to reach a mutually agreeable outcome.
