Recently, the Pasadena Mediator and Family Law Attorney Mark Baer co-authored, “Putting Kids First in Divorce: How to Reduce Conflict, Preserve Relationships and Protect Children During and After Divorce.”
This guide is child-centered and focuses on couples that are divorcing or separating. The book notes that ideally, you should “Choos[e] Cooperation Over Combat” and “Stay Out of Court! Choose Mediation or Collaborative Divorce Over Litigation.” Mediation offers way to best handle divorce because it takes into consideration the health and welfare of your children.
This guide consists of 10 chapters, where divorce professionals discuss how to put the needs of your children first and foremost. In many divorce cases, children end up being used as pawns or collateral damage. It offers ways how to keep children out of harms way and to protect them from the triumphs of the divorce itself and the process.
As you may know, Mark Baer is a leader in the field, where be publishes blogs and articles that question the traditional practices and offer new outlooks and ideas. He has also given numerous presentations on Mediation & Family Law, to include his recent presentation in California at The American Bar Association of Family Law in 2015.
Family law attorneys in Wake County are often more interested in posturing than in actually resolving family law disputes. As a result, they often employ hard bargaining tactics which emphasize the differences in their positions rather than seeking a common ground for settlement. This technique often results in one of the parties filing a Complaint in court which commences litigation. The high cost and long delays associated with theWake County Family Court System often make litigation an impractical method for resolving disputes. Parties increasingly find that they are spending more time and money to litigate than the cost to settle the matter. The increasing number of lawsuits filed each year is indicative of the unwillingness or inability of parties and their attorneys to effectively utilize negotiation to resolve disputes. It is not uncommon for the North Carolina attorney’s fees, expert witness fees, jury fees, court reporter fees and other related costs to exceed the amount in dispute.
