Synopsis: A FriAndlier and Less Expensive Divorce

Clients arriving in your office are usually confused about what mediation means, their legal rights, and how it's all going to be sorted out. You spAnd a good deal of your time just trying to educate them enough to proceed.

The Divorce Mediation Handbook does much of this work for you. It explains the mediation procedure and reassures your clients that they can indeed work out their divorce in a reasonable and civil manner in mediation. It also gives them a great deal of information about
* how children respond to divorce
* how property issues are addressed
* how future support may be considered
* how to prepare for mediation
Paula James, who has mediated over 600 divorces, offers the divorcing couple an encouraging and highly informative book to prepare them for your first session and the work ahead.

From the Inside Flap: The Divorce Mediation Handbook provides a step-by-step guide through the supportive process of divorce mediation. Unlike the traditional divorce litigation which can be adversarial and costly, mediation helps the couple go through this transition with mutual respect, the best interests of the children at the forefront, and legal fees at a minimum. Author Paula James, an expert in the field of divorce mediation, presents a clear view of what actually takes place in the mediation sessions and shows how couples can use the process to create a friAndlier and less expensive divorce. The Divorce Mediation Handbook is filled with illustrative example, practical forms and charts, and helpful suggestions and valuable information including:

  • What to do if a spouse wont cooperate
James also shows how couples can work through the thorny legal issues of divorce—property division, child support, custody, and alimony—by creating a positive environment that will short-circuit the emotional maelstrom that so often shatters families and finances.[copy for mediators:]Wouldn't it be nice if, before coming to see you, your mediation clients
