Can collaborative law work in a high asset divorce?

The dissolution of marriage and conflict seem to go hand in hand, especially when significant assets are involved.

Property division and nesting: How do they work together?

After divorce, in an effort to keep things as normal as possible for children, some parents in Pennsylvania and elsewhere are turning to the living arrangement known as nesting.
