Getting SplitReady Episode 22.1: Marriage Story as a Justification for Collaborative Divorce

Marriage Story, a Netflix movie with Scarlet Johansson and Adam Driver, was undoubtedly a great portrayal of the trials and tribulations of divorce. The movie shows the devastating truth about the divorce process where an amicable approach escalated to a more conflicted one.

Join us for an engaging discussion with Patrick Markey from The Law Offices of Patrick Markey about his recent article on Marriage Story and how it validates the collaborative approach to divorce.

Also joining the conversation is Bryan Wilson from Kogut and Wilson LLC.
