  • Child-Centered Divorce Month

    July is national child-centered divorce month and Blended Love, a Tulsa based non-profit dedicated to supporting children of divorce, is helping to raise awareness.

  • Children who have been affected by divorce are more likely to have lower grades, increased numbers of absences and are more likely to
    abuse drugs and alcohol. With more than 63 percent of children in the
    United States living in a single parent home, Blended Love hopes to
    raise awareness and help bring resources to schools in the community.

  • Blended Love is using social media and hosting events during the month
    of July to help promote their cause and invite others to support and
    spread their message.

  • Monica Epperson, founder of Blended Love and a certified teacher, has a mission to bring hope and camaraderie to the children of divorce
    through the classroom.

  • "Child-centered divorce month is all about the child of divorce,” Epperson said. “Our goal as an organization is to promote support for
    the children and offer resources and tips to parents to help mitigate
    the negative effects of divorce."

  • Blended Love is teaming up with Chick Fil-A to give community members an opportunity to support the cause. On July 22 from 5p.m. to 8
    p.m., the Chick-fil-A on 103rd and Memorial in Tulsa will donate a
    portion of all proceeds to Blended Love. To participate, eat at
    Chick-fil-A on July 22 and place your receipt in the Blended Love box
    located at the restaurant. If you are unable to attend the event, the
    drive thru will have a Blended Love box and will be donating proceeds
    from the entire day.

  • Blended love is also offering additional information about how to help your children cope with divorce, including 4 Ways to Create a Child-Centered Divorce.

How can you step up to support National Child-Centered Divorce Month in your community?

What Is a Caucus?

One of the guiding values in mediation and collaborative law is transparency. It comes with the territory when one is trying to establish trust with two different parties.

These meetings are called caucuses.Caucuses can be…See More

How Important Is the Budget in Divorce Planning?

I think everyone’s least favorite word is BUDGET. Why don’t we want to hear that word? Think about it: We’re asking ourselves to do something we don’t want to do — or worse yet, someone else is asking us to do it. While we might not like them, having a budget does help. In divorce planning — whether you are going to litigation,…See More

21st Century Parenting Plans

I remember when the default custody arrangement had one parent as the custodial parent, and the other parent was known as the “Disneyland parent.” They had their children every other weekend, and maybe once during the week for dinner. Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More
