Going through a divorce or know someone who is going through a divorce? Divorce can be very stressful on families and most especially on children. Ten years ago if you went through a divorce or knew someone who went through a divorce, the only option available was to use litigation. Ten years ago, like today, the worst case scenario involved a hotly contested litigated divorce, where families spent their entire life savings and some to have a Judge who only got to hear some of the evidence, make a decision about their family. Today, families going through divorce have another option outside of litigation, Collaborative Law. 1. What is the Benefit of Collaborative Law? Collaborative law allows families to divorce in an efficient manner while focusing on what is most important, their children. In a Collaborative divorce, the focus is on restructuring your family not destroying your family. 2. Why Should You Use Collaborative Law If You Have Children If you have children, divorce does not mean that you are getting rid of your spouse and that you will not ever have to communicate with your spouse again. Rather, you will have to communicate more with your spouse about your children with an additional obstacle of not being married and not being in the same house. In a Collaborative divorce, we try to give parents the tools to co-parent even after they are not married by involving a neutral communication facilitator. The neutral communication facilitator is the leader of the pack so to say. The communication facilitator is there to help guide the parents through the divorce process, keep the communication productive, and help the parents create a custom parenting plan designed for their family rather than a cookie cutter parenting plan ordered by a Judge who does not even know your family. In Collaborative law, the details important to your family and your children can be ad-

dressed. For example, extracurricular activities, private school, summer camp, day care, and tutoring to name a few. In a litigated divorce, the court does not have time to address the details about your family. 3. Why You Should Use Collaborative Law If you do not pay the bills In a marriage, each spouse usually has their own defined role. For example, one spouse usually takes the trash out, one spouse usually feeds the cat or dog, and one spouse usually pays the bills. Often, the spouse who does not pay the bills has limited knowledge about the family finances. In Collaborative law, we often involve a neutral financial professional. The neutral financial professional is the organizer of the process. The neutral financial professional works with the clients to understand their estate. Once the neutral financial professional understands the estate, he or she then organizes the information into a workable format such as a spreadsheet for both of the clients and each client’s respective attorney. The neutral financial professional then walks the client and attorneys around the estate so that everyone has the same information and understanding. Should one spouse need or request additional information, everyone commits to and agrees to provide whatever information is needed so that the spouse can have a sense of comfort when making decisions. 4. How do I get started? If you are interested in learning more about collaborative law or you are looking for a collaboratively trained attorney, contact The Law Office of Lauren Gaydos Duffer, P.C. at 817.548.5643 to schedule your consultation with Lauren Gaydos Duffer. The Law Office of Lauren Gaydos Duffer, P.C. has offices in Arlington and Dallas. In addition to divorce, The Law Office of Lauren Gaydos Duffer, P.C. handles child custody, paternity, child support, adoption, surrogacy, egg donation, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, and grandparents’ rights.

Linda Hentz, owner of D&J Medical Supplies in Fort Worth, recognized the need for women who have undergone breast surgery to have a comfortable, compassionate shopping atmosphere to find health related products. She created just that when she opened Ladies Choice, a boutique that provides products to restore a woman’s confidence and help her maintain femininity. Ladies Choice is committed to helping women look and feel their best. Women often experience a wide range of emotions due to the traumatic experience of breast surgery. The boutique offers a caring and knowledgeable staff that is sensitive to their needs. There is a wide selection of prosthesis’ and mastectomy bras to fit everyone’s need. In this business, “one size” does not fit all women. As a Certified Mastectomy Fitter, Linda is committed to serving the needs of women looking for high quality Mastectomy Bras, Silicone Breast Forms, Mastectomy Bathing Suits, Post Mastectomy Camisoles, and Lymphedema Compression Arm Sleeves. In addition, Ladies Choice is the only location west of I-35 that carries Mastectomy Bathing Suits. Linda and her staff are dedicated to customer satisfaction and continually strive to provide exceptional service. Post mastectomy products are covered by Medicare and most insurance companies. Linda works closely with vari-

ous organizations in the community that are willing to help financially. If anyone is not insured, she will work to help secure financial assistance. Ladies Choice is accredited through the American Board for Certification. Linda is also a member of the National Retailer Advisory Panel for Amoena, a leading manufacturer of breast forms and bras. “Linda enthusiastically participates in our events throughout the year to raise both money and awareness in our fight against cancer. She has been a longtime advocate for the American Cancer Society, and each time we have asked for her support, she is there for us, said Mary Mysko, Community Manager for the American Cancer Society Fort Worth. Due to Linda’s knowledge, experience and passion we have been able to double the number of breast cancer patients we have served in 2008.” Linda regularly participates in the Breast Cancer 3-Day with her friend, who is a breast cancer survivor. The pair will work as crew members for the 2010 walk, and next year plan to walk in celebration of their 60th birthdays! Visit Ladies Choice, located at 900 Hemphill Street in Fort Worth.
