What looks like just another celebrity breakup might actually be instructive for any divorcing couple. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are going the way of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin in choosing a non-adversarial way to divorce while living in the public eye. During her divorce, Paltrow made headlines for describing the process as “conscious uncoupling.” Many attorneys, including myself, appreciated the spotlight she had shone on non-adversarial divorce. Various magazines, including Us Weekly, have reported that Ben and Jen’s settlement features a creative custody agreement for their 3 children which will include each parent living in separate residences on the family’s estate. The goal being to provide as little disruption to the children’s lives as possible and help them feel secure and loved.
