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.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average woman's family income drops by 37% after divorce. Do you know what assets or how much alimony or child support you are entitled to receive? Has your spouse threatened to leave you penniless? Have you spoken to an attorney and gotten sticker-shock? Do you earn too much money to qualify for free legal aid? Are you unable to decipher the scary-looking legal forms your spouse keeps sending you in the mail? This book was written to help the low- and moderate-income women the legal system has abandoned by walking a hypothetical self-represented woman step-by-step through the divorce process. Including: 1. How to prepare financially to stand on your own two feet; 2. What the court can, and cannot do for you; 3. 'Legwork' that can save you money on legal fees and help you get a better outcome; 4. How much child support and alimony you might be entitled to receive; 5. How to show a judge that your spouse is lying about his assets and income; 6. What property you are entitled to receive … and should ask for; 7. Ways vindictive ex-spouses can screw you over; 8. Real life dirty tricks, traps, and pitfalls highlighted so you can avoid them; 9. How to find a good attorney, save legal fees, or piece together legal services if you can't afford a full-service attorney; 10. Mediation … benefits and pitfalls; 11. How to dig up information your spouse doesn't want you to know (discovery) like an attorney does; 12. Common court forms and how to fill them out; 13.

Sample hearing scripts for common court hearings (including Temporary Orders and Trial); 16. Restraining orders … how to get one … how to keep one; 17. Custody disputes … 'fatal flaws' and how you can fix them. Everything you NEVER wanted to know about divorce … but need to come up to speed … FAST!!! This is the only self-help legal book written by someone who was once in your shoes who later went back to school to become an attorney! 550 pages + bonus printable Separation Agreement forms Legal Disclaimer: This book is not meant to constitute legal advice. Please consult with a local attorney before making any decisions which might affect your legal rights. The author is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts and uses Massachusetts examples in the text. 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

Therapeutic Family Mediation is a practice-based book grounded in a therapeutic family mediation (TFM) model created by the authors. TFM, unlike other practice models for family mediation, devotes special attention to family and emotional dynamics, and therefore can be used in a wider variety of cases. The text not only focuses on TFM, but also surveys the contemporary practice field to make readers aware of other models. In addition to the TFM model, the text includes topics such as creating parenting plans, working with patterns of conflict and money, drafting a contract, working with high-conflict couples and culturally diverse couples.

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.
