Top reasons to mediate your divorce

Divorce is confusing, stressful and can be very difficult to deal with. One of the toughest parts of divorce is deciding with your ex how you will divorce. Some people will attempt to do it on their own; others will enlist help in the form of litigation and/or mediation.

University develops collaborative approach to couples counseling

A professor at a large northern university has proposed a piece of legislation titled the, "Second Chances Act." He says it was written as a way to help reduce the number of unnecessary divorces. He is also the director of a university project called "Couples on the Brink." His hope is to create an approach to marriage counseling that focuses on keeping couples together, rather than allowing them to throw up their hands in defeat, or listening to friends and relatives who keep telling them to "divorce the loser."

Texas Supreme Court to decide strength of custody mediation

The Texas Supreme Court will decide whether or not a mediated custody agreement between parents should be sanctioned, even if a judge believes it is not in the best interest of the child. Mediation for divorcing couples is cheaper, faster and less stressful for all parties involved. Therefore, state law gives our family court judges very little discretion on mediated settlements. The agreements are usually entered into court documents during routine hearings without any objections.
