Should You Invite Your Spouse to Join You in a Divorce Workshop?

When splitting up, you might think knowing more than your partner does about how divorce works might give you an advantage – but it doesn’t. Actually, it can be helpful to learn about the divorce process together with your soon-to-be ex.

As a financial planner, I participate in many different types of workshops, including for divorce. Due to the pandemic, these days they are usually webinars. Divorce is no exception. Should you suggest to your spouse that they should join you in a divorce workshop? Or do you want to keep the information that you got in a divorce workshop to yourself?
