Mediation, as a procedure to assist couples in dealing with the problems incident to their separation and divorce, is still relatively new in the United States. For the would-be practitioner, that poses certain problems. Divorce mediation cannot provide a long history of generally accepted procedures. Nor is there even a body of information to which would-be practitioners can turn for instruction or guidance. And, of course, there are no established schools that can train or prepare a practitioner to do this work. To make matters worse, the situation is likely to remain in this state for some time to come. Given this fact, it was felt that it would be useful for practitioners (even for those already engaged in divorce mediation) to have a handbook which would trace a typical mediation from its inception to its conclusion and which would provide them with the substantive informa tion they need to know in order to do divorce mediation. It is hoped that this handbook will fill this need. Having said that, however, it must be acknowledged that the purpose of this book is very much beyond that. Until now, divorce mediation in the United States has been shaped principally by such books as O. J. Coogler's Structured Mediation in Divorce Settlements: A Handbook for Marital Mediators, 1 and John Haynes' Divorce Mediation: 2 A Practical Guide for Therapists and Counselors.

As well as your most confusing issues: o We have children but we never married, and now we're splitting up. Can we use mediation to provide for our children in the future? o Our baby is still nursing. How does that affect custody and visitation? o Does child support include medical bills? Health insurance? o How do we decide who gets the frequent flier miles? Who gets the dog? o If we sell our home, how do we divide the proceeds? o Am I entitled to a portion of my spouse's Social Security benefits? o When we complete our separation agreement, do we need new Wills and any other new documents?

While the formal definition of divorce may be concise and straightforward (legal termination of a marital union, dissolving bonds of matrimony between parties), the effects are anything but, particularly when children are involved. The Americans for Divorce Reform estimates that "40 or possibly even 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue." Outside the U.S., divorce rates have markedly increased across developed countries. Divorce and its effects are a significant social factor in our culture and others. It might be said that a whole "divorce industry" has been constructed, with divorce lawyers and mediators, family counselors, support groups, etc. As King Henry VIII's divorces showed, divorce has not always been easy or accepted. In some countries, divorce is not permitted and even in Europe, countries such as Spain, Italy, Portugal, and the Republic of Ireland legalized divorce only in the latter quarter of the 20th century. This multi-disciplinary encyclopedia covers curricular subjects related to divorce as examined by disciplines ranging from marriage and the family to anthropology, social and legal history, developmental and clinical psychology, and religion, all through a lens of cultural sociology. Features: 550 signed entries, A-to-Z, fill 3 volumes (1,500 pages) in print and electronic formats, offering the most detailed reference work available on issues related to divorce, both in the U.S. and globally. Cross-References and Further Readings guide readers to additional resources. A Chronology provides students with context via a historical perspective of divorce. In the electronic version, the comprehensive Index combines with Cross-References and thematic Reader's Guide themes to provide convenient search-and-browse capabilities. For state and nation entries, uniform entry structure combined with an abundance of statistics facilitates comparison between and across states and nations. Appendices provide further annotated sources of data and statistics.

Divorce in the United States is becoming more prevalent than ever. More than 2.3 million Americans divorce each year, and halt of all marriages and 60% of all remarriages end in divorce. And the costs of ending a marriage--(both financial and emotional--(are staggering; the most conservative estimated cost of divorce is $15,000 and average legal fees range from $20,000 to $30,000. And with most lawyers fees reaching $300 or more an hour, there is a widespread need for accessible, inexpensive, and trustworthy information on all aspects of divorce. "The Complete Guide to Divorce Law provides readers who have no legal background with a detailed explanation of divorce law in each of the 50 states, which will help to minimize these legal fees and some of the emotional trauma that accompanies a divorce. For a fraction of the cost of an hour with their divorce lawyer, legal expert Nikara Choudri provides an easy to understand explanation of legal rules governing alimony, child support, child custody, and visitation. Now everyone going through a divorce will learn the requirements for filing for divorce, how divorce courts divide property, the qualifications for alimony, and how much child support will be required in a specific case. From the basic subjects, like determining the grounds for divorce, to complex topics like pensions, stock options, and professional licenses and degrees, Choudri offers sound, step-by-step advice that will help those contemplating the dissolution of a marriage to negotiate a settlement directly with a spouse as well as helping them to determine whether they can reach an out of-court settlement. With chapters on such topics ranging from transmutation to drafting anout-of-court agreement, this is an invaluable guide that will help everyone make informed rational decisions while coping with the difficult issues that can arise in a heated divorce.

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.
