Divorce Lawyers and the Reptilian Brain

No one goes into marriage thinking they will divorce one day, but if half of all marriages end in divorce, as the statistics tell us, the chance of a couple staying together are about 50/50, which may be a good bet or bad bet - depending on whether or not you like to gamble.There is only one sure bet about divorce, and that is this: hiring a divorce lawyer will only make things more expensive and nasty.

Profile Information

About Me:
I was a special ed teacher prior to becoming an attorney so I came to the law wanting to act only in the best interest of the child. I was horrified when I saw what the real deal was with divorce court. It is a total racket and the only people who benefit are the lawyers. The overwhelming majority of divorcing couples would be better off using a mediator.

How To Save $37,500 On Legal Fees AND Protect Your Co-Parenting Relationship

This will probably surprise you but divorce is NOT a legal issue, it is a personal issue and most people should get a divorce with little or no lawyer involvement. If you want to have the smoothest divorce possible the solution is to resolve your problems outside of court.



1. Avoid Lawyers and Courts as much as possible! The first thing you should know is that our legal system is not child-focused or family-friendly; it is adversarial by nature. The emotional and financial price you… Continue

What to advise clients who are thinking of divorce

Every now and then you will get a call from a client asking for a referral to a divorce attorney. Like all referral situations, a recommendation can have serious repercussions if the work isn't done properly or the parties don't like each other. You can win or lose big depending on the outcome. You want to steer your client in the right direction but just don't know who to trust with your most precious resources, your reputation and your clients.



The words that you are about to read… Continue

9 Top Tips To Avoid Court!

1. Appoint a Special Master (go to person) for disputed issues regarding the

kids


Instead of running to court when issues come up in the future, build into your divorce agreement a back door to avoid court. Is there a couple who

has already successfully raised their children, whose opinion you trust? They

would be the perfect Special Master to use when kid disputes arise in the

future. This is an honor most people would gladly accept. When issues come… Continue

You know, I haven't figured out yet how to send out a blast to the entire membership yet. I think that is possible. If not, maybe you send to your friends and I will send to mine. I think we should do an "Ask Campaign" (a la Alex Mandossian). Let me think on the questions to ask and get back with you. My schedule is extremely flexible for doing our teleseminar. Listen, check out DivorceTV.tv. Dr. Max and I have been doing podcast series on there (Itunes baby!). That's what we are going to do with our talk, too!

Hey Belinda - when are we going to do that call? Let's give our members (and the rest of the world!) the benefit of our combined knowledge and experience! It promises to be lively, that's for sure!

Thanks for your wonderful comments.

Collaborative law is a great idea but the cases in TX are expensive.

I certainly encourage collaborative divorce but when people can't afford it, I try to find alternatives
that work for them.

Mediation and my do it yourself kits have made practicing law fun!
At the end of the day I am energized and not totally wiped out.

I am on the board of the International Alliance of Holistic Attorneys. Our next annual conference is May 15-18 in Detroit, MI. We are staying at hte Retreat Center of St. Johns in Plymouth MI.

Go to www.iahl.org for more details.

If there is anyway to advertise this conference, I'd be very appreciative.

I've attended the last 2 years and have come back energized and inspired. It's not your usual CLE conference.

Under the new proposal that would end.Here is the rationale for making these changes: The proposal would eliminate what is effectively a divorce…See More

New Models of Mediation

When I got trained in mediation, we were told that you either did solo mediation (one mediator) or co-mediation (two mediators). Since then, divorce professionals have learned that there are endless permutations of effective methods to mediate. In this post, I describe a few of the arrangements I have encountered in the 30 years I have been doing this.Integrated Mediation is…See More
