If you are angry at your spouse, it may be beneficial to postpone the settlement conference for a time so that you can participate meaningfully in settlement negotiations. You might also consider seeking counseling to support you with coping with your anger.
Another option is shuttle negotiations. With this method, you and your attorney remain in one room, while your spouse and his or her attorney are in another. The attorneys relay the settlement offers throughout the negotiation process. By shifting your focus from your angry feelings to your goal of a settlement, it may be easier to proceed through the process.
