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. Dailey, Esq., CFLS, AAML, president, Attorney's BriefCase, Inc.

Kirkus Review: "Attorney Merrill leads women through the complicated process of divorce while warning against common mistakes, including how to document assets, estimate child support and alimony, and even, if necessary, obtain restraining orders. She discusses many topics related to asset division and child custody, including marital debt and visitation rights. The book is aimed at the broadest possible audience, but it also discusses variations in state laws. A solid, informative self-help divorce guide." Cape Cod Times: "Here is a book that will be indispensable to a certain segment of the reading public. Attorney Anna Merrill has spent the past decade working with a variety of nonprofits ... I think one can say that she has seen up close the effect on women of bad relationships and divorce. Now that experience has been set down in a sizable reference work of text, worksheets, graphics and more that will help women fortify themselves for divorce and protect their interests." Note: due to the extensive use of charts and tables, this book is only available in a .pdf format. Mid-sized e-reading devices can best read this book by turning your e-reader horizontally, but if you generally read on a Smart Phone, the text will become too small for you to read. In that case, we suggest you purchase the PRINT edition. * Keywords: women and divorce, women's divorce, battered women, spousal abuse, restraining orders, how to get a restraining order, divorce, divorce law, womens divorce, self-help legal guide, legal self-help, divorce law, divorce self-help, do it yourself divorce, d.i.y. divorce, separation agreement, how to file your own divorce, divorce for low-income women, child custody, child custody law, child custody & support, custody dispute, how to win a custody dispute, contempt, contempt of court, what to do when your husband doesn't pay child support, alimony, how to collect alimony, what do I do when my husband refuses to pay alimony, child support, how to collect child support, self-employed husband, self-employed husbands, what do I do if my husband is hiding money, custody disputes, father's rights movement, divorce without lawyers, how do I get a divorce without a lawyer, divorce self-help, child custody law, women's issues, women's rights, essential guide to divorce, legal help for women, legal advice for women, divorce after 50, divorce without court, mediation, mediators, working with mediators, how to work with a mediator, how to work with a lawyer, save money on legal bills, low cost divorce, Massachusetts divorce, Massachusetts law, Massachusetts divorce law, Massachusetts custody dispute, Massachusetts courts, bitter custody dispute, child support, property division

After countless decades of observing the emotional and financial devastation resulting from on-going court battles over money and children, we confront a daunting truth- it is still the law in every single state in America that, following parental separation, the amount of time you spend with your children directly determines how much child support you will pay or receive. Moreover, the way for you to end up with more money is to get custody or more time with your children, or to restrict the other parent's time with the children. However, in spite of our current adversarial court system, where one side wins and one side loses, we no longer need to assume that separated parents will be in conflict over child support, or that they need to start court action against each other to determine the child support amount. We now have a SOLUTION to the need to engage in unnecessary battles over custody simply to obtain more child support dollars for their client. Parents now can UNHOOK CUSTODY FROM SUPPORT. It is time to recognize both parents as worthy and important to their children, regardless of their ability (or inability) to earn an income, and regardless of whether they spend more, or less, time with their children. It is time to recognize that divorcing parents need to be encouraged to concentrate on taking care of their children's needs, rather than on fighting costly and time-consuming battles in court. For the sake of the countless children raised each year by separated or divorced parents, this book calls for a dramatic change in the way parents go about sharing the costs of raising them. We are now able to offer to courts, family law attorneys, divorce mediators and, most importantly, families, better tools to avoid these destructive contests.

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.
