How To Have An Amicable and Peaceful Divorce - Megan Piccardi

By Mish Pope

I wanted to tackle divorce, because I don't think that we can shy away from it. In Australia the divorce rate for marriages is about 40% and around 46% of divorces involve children. I'm the product of divorce (actually 3 of them growing up) and each of them were different. There's a growing movement around collaborative, amicable and gentle divorces. In fact when I asked Megan recently how things were going she replied 'it was a great day, the couple went into mediation, came to a conclusion and both took the kids out to sushi'. Divorce doesn't have to be messy and with collaborative family lawyers (there is such a thing!) we can be guided to reducing trauma for both the adults and children. This episode is great, eye-opening and progressive. I am not going to dig my head in the sand about divorce, because it does happen.  How can we make it as peaceful as possible? ------ Megan Piccardi is a collaborative family lawyer based in Brisbane, Queensland. Megan finds that by bringing a compassionate approach to her practice she is able to help couples have a healthy divorce by finding solutions outside the court system.  You can connect with Megan here: http://piccardilegal.com.au/
