Collaborative Divorce in the Simplest Terms Possible

Today I learned about a fun webpage called the Up-Goer Five Text Editor. The site challenges you to "explain a hard idea using only the ten hundred most used words."

Here's how I described my work as a Collaborative Divorce attorney:

When married people break up, they are often very angry. Their anger makes it hard for them to do the right things with their money and children. Sometimes they spend a lot of money to fight about it, and they don't want to talk to each other anymore when they're done breaking up. In my work, I am part of a team that helps married people who are breaking up to see past their anger to do the right things with their money and children. This way, they don't use as much money or time and don't fight as much when the work is done.

As an aside, I learned about the site from my sister-in-law, Elinor Karlsson. You can read how she describes her human evolution research here.

Give it a try — how would you describe your work using only the 1,000 most common words?
