It is no small task to embark on the difficult journey of divorce. For couples who have come to an impasse in their relationship, there is much to unpack—figuratively and literally. The dissolution of marriage is as complicated legally as it is emotionally.

As a Collaborative family law attorney and certified mediator who has personal and professional experience with divorce and co-parenting, I’ll be the first to admit that this is true. These processes can become even more challenging and complex when there are mental health concerns with either, or both, spouses and/or their children.
