Collaborative expert on the Gold Coast

When two people go into a marriage, the last thing they expect is that they’ll get divorced.

But, sadly, a good deal of Australian marriages do end in divorce.

It’s a difficult enough thing to go through when there’s just the two of you – but add children to the mix and it can be traumatic for all involved.

Relationship breakdowns and divorces can often end up in the courtroom, but an Adjunct Professor in Collaborative Lawyering at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto says they don’t have to.

Victoria Smith is interviewed by ABC Gold Coast Mornings presenter Trevor Jackson.
