Airing January 20th-26th on Conscious Business with Pamlea Lynch and her guest Robert Milen
Robert Milen, a lawyer who specializes in Collaborative Family Law is a guest on the show with us to share his thoughts and wisdom about separation. As Rob says in the interview, “Lawyers are there to ensure people understand what they are doing. And, if there is some hope that couples can get into an alternate dispute resolution, mediation, or any opportunity that they can take for counselling because sometimes people get themselves into a rut and re-think things and do want to get back together. Sometimes they need a little help to get there.” It doesn’t always end in divorce, and Robert takes great joy in helping clients stay together and save their marriage or relationship. He also points out that children play a key role in the decision their parents are making and are not pieces on the chessboard. They grieve terribly and it’s critical for the children’s voice to be heard. One of the ways to do that is through counselling.
Rob shares with us the single most common reason marriages break up and the first step he recommends couples take once they’ve decided to separate. He explains mediation and the roles various people, such as divorce coaches, counsellors, mediators, and lawyers, have in helping to guide a couple through the separation and divorce process.
Robert A. Milen has extensive knowledge of legislative and political processes, conflict resolution, mediation, project leadership and management, to name a few areas of expertise. Robert is a Barrister and Solicitor for British Columbia and owns and operates his private law practice where he specializes in Collaborative Family Law.
