Divorce Mediation Manual offers an important resource for anyone contemplating divorce. This manual is meant to positively assist and inform couples engaged in the process of divorce mediation, helping them navigate the process. Divorce mediation is about choosing what to do when a marriage is coming apart, and decisions must be made about what’s best for both parties. If there are children involved, the mediation process can become an important process to promote a healthy connection between the parents and the children. In mediation, the couple meets with a neutral third party, the mediator; with his or her help, they work through the issues they need to resolve, so they can end their marriage peacefully, respectfully, and inexpensively. The basic topics to resolve in mediation include the following: • Division of assets and debts • Child custody and establishing a parenting plan • Child support, spousal support, or family support • Division of employee/retirement benefits • Resolving reimbursement claims • Avoiding taxes and defining the tax basis of assets to be divided Divorce Mediation Manual is an effective guide to making the right choices when considering a divorce or engaged in divorce mediation.

Forrest S. Mosten Collaborative Divorce Handbook Helping families without going to court Praise for Collaborative Divorce Handbook "There are many roads to peace. Whether you engage in collaborative practice, which by definition includes the provision that professionals will not represent the parties in litigation, or some other process for respectful conflict resolution, you will find Collaborative Divorce Handbook to be an invaluable resource for deepening your understanding and enhancing your skills as a peacemaker." —Talia L. Katz, JD, executive director, International Academy of Collaborative Professionals "Collaborative lawyering is a promising new way of resolving disputes through joint problem solving rather than adversary litigation that has particular appeal for divorce cases. Whether you are a client who seeks to learn more about it or a lawyer using it who desires a wise guiding hand, this book is an invaluable resource." —Frank E. A. Sander, Bussey Professor Emeritus, Harvard Law School "Written by one of the innovative thinkers in the field, Collaborative Divorce Handbook is a treasure of information for all professionals interested in collaborative divorce. Easy to read, expansive, and chock-full of resources, it is bound to become a classic." —Constance Ahrons, PhD, author, The Good Divorce and We're Still Family, and professor emerita, University of Southern California "Family law is changing. As more people realize that the adversarial process is expensive, degrading, and stressful, they look for alternatives and find it in various forms of alternative dispute resolution. Woody Mosten is the nationally recognized leader of this movement, and his book on collaborative practice literally will be 'The Handbook' we will all follow." —Garrett C.
