Overview

Thanks to high-profile celebrity separations, TV talk shows and the personal experience of many, divorce means battle, plain and simple. But does it have to be a bloodletting that ends up in court? Not if a couple chooses mediation.Mediation is the quick, fair and low stress way to resolve all kinds of disputes, including divorce. It takes place in a quiet room without a judge or a jury and leaves the final decision to the parties involved, not a disinterested lawyer. Consequently, more and more divorcing couples are choosing to mediate rather than step inside the contentious courtroom. In this book, Attorney-Mediator Katherine Stoner sheds light on the role of mediation in divorce and then explains how to:· find and use a mediator
· prepare for mediation
· anticipate what will happen in mediation
· conduct oneself in the mediation process
· get an agreement in writing
· find and use legal and other types of advisors
· research state divorce lawsKeeping divorce out of court not only saves people money and time, it lessens the impact of the separation on children and other family members involved. With Stoner's encouraging, straightforward book in hand, couples have the antidote to frayed nerves, miserable families and protracted battles.It includes loads of helpful worksheets and checklists, and provides the latest resources, contact information for state offices, national and regional organizations, and the standards of conduct for mediation.
