Overview

Divorce conjures up a nightmare of huge legal bills, jockeying lawyers and seething resentment, with wounded children waiting in the wings. But it doesn't have to be so grim.
Divorce mediation offers separating couples the chance to work with a neutral third party to resolve differences and find solutions — often in a manner of weeks — in a non-adversarial environment.
By choosing to mediate your divorce, you can:
* steer clear of bitter court battles
* save money
* get through your divorce quickly
* soften the blow on kids
Using Divorce Mediation is the comprehensive manual you need to understand the entire divorce mediation process—from finding the right mediator to writing your final settlement.
Encouraging and straightforward, it answers all the questions people have about divorce mediation, including:
* Why should I choose mediation?
* How does mediation fit into the divorce process?
* Will I still have to go to court?
* What happens in mediation?
* Am I ready to mediate?
* How do I know if my spouse is ready to mediate?
* How do I propose mediation to my spouse?
* How do I locate the right mediator?
* How should I prepare for—and make the most of—each session?
* How do I communicate in mediation?
* How do I negotiate in mediation?
* What if I am required to use court-sponsored mediation?
* Do I still need to consult a lawyer if I mediate?
* How can I get answers to my legal questions?
* What can I do if we hit a brick wall during mediation?
* Can we use our mediator to draft our agreement and the final settlement?
* Can mediation workif there has been domestic violence in the relationship?
* Can we mediate if my partner and I are unmarried?
* Can we mediate if issues come up after divorce?
* If I am in a new relationship, can I mediate living together agreements?
Written by Attorney-Mediator Katherine Stoner, Using Divorce Mediation gives you a legitimate, increasingly popular alternative for resolving your divorce issues without spending a fortune.
