Setting boundaries when co-parenting

Family experts and the courts agree that co-parenting is the best approach to raising children if the parents file for divorce. Ideally, this will involve effortless planning, seamless transitions between homes, and parents who are on the same page when it comes to goals for raising the children and rules for doing it. The reality, however, is that it will take effort, but it is possible.

High-asset divorce need not mean high-conflict divorce

News of divorces by the famous and super wealthy often bounce around the internet as click bait. Some stories will even sound downright disappointed when there is a civilized approach like the conscious uncoupling by Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin or the recent announcement of amicable split involving a 50-50 arrangement of $137 billion by Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos.

Common forms of mediation

Mediation is an alternative form of dispute resolution that generally does not involve the courts. A form of collaborative law that cuts down on the confrontation and stress, it is known to lessen the impact divorce, custody issues or other family law matters have on the family. It also is less expensive and more private than litigation in court.

Reasons Why Your Attorney Encourages Alternative Dispute Resolution

If you are facing a divorce and having initial conversations with attorneys, you are likely to hear the term "alternative dispute resolution" (ADR) at some point in your discussion. ADR is simply any means by which a resolution is reached without the court making the decision. It can include mediation, collaborative law, arbitration, parenting coordinators, negotiation or any other creative option that allows the parties to reach agreement on the issues.
