The latest endorsement for collaborative divorce comes from Texas oilman and billionaire T. Boone Pickens. Pickens recently chose the collaborative divorce process for his fourth divorce from wife Madeleine. Pickens discussed his experience at a private event for the State Bar of Texas. In an interview with the Dallas Business Journal published on March 1, Pickens said “Collaborative law keeps everything on a high level, and everybody cooperating.”
Pickens was so pleased with the process and the cost savings, he donated $100,000 to the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas.
Pickens also said he didn’t plan on getting married a fifth time. Imagine that.
