Step-by-step guide through the supportive process of divorce mediation. Author Paula James, an expert in the field of divorce mediation, presents a clear view of what actually takes place in the mediation sessions and shows how couples can use the process to create a friAndlier and less expensive divorce. James also shows how couples can work through the thorny legal and financial issues of divorce— property division, child support, custody, and alimony— by creating a positive environment that will short-circuit the emotional maelstrom and punitive costs that so often shatter families and finances.
