I Speak the Truth

The Sun Sentinel of Broward County agrees with me. Family mediation is the wave of the future. An article published on May 4, 2011 clearly explains how the recession has forced many divorcing couples to find alternatives to the traditional lawyer-driven divorce. Many couples are working with family mediators prior to filing any divorce papers in an effort to save money.  Specifically, the articles addresses simplified divorces - divorce with no dependent children, no issues of alimony, and generally fewer assets.  Between 2005 and 2009, the number of simplified divorces has "almost doubled in Palm Beach County and jumped 20 percent in Broward County."  Divorcing couples in South Florida are willing to put their emotional issues aside and work together to save money, time, and headaches.
