Here are some links to resources on Collaborative Divorce, Mediation, and Family Law which you may find helpful.
Books on Collaborative Divorce:
1. Collaborative Divorce: The Revolutionary New Way to Restructure Your Family, Resolve Legal Issues, and Move On With Your Life, by Pauline Tesler and Peggy Thompson. This is one of two ebooks on Collaborative Divorce that I have loaded on my iphone because of its tremendous value as a resource. I was trained in the Collaborative Method by Pauline Tesler and have attended Pauline’s advanced workshops on Collaborative Practice.

2. The Collaborative Way to Divorce: The Revolutionary Method That Results in Less Stress, Lower Costs, and Happier Kids — Without Going To Court, by Stuart G. Webb and Ronald D. Ousky. This is the second ebook on Collaborative Divorce that I carry around at all times. Stu Webb founded Collaborative Divorce on January 1, 1990 when he made the decision that he had it with continuing to practice divorce law using the pre-dominantly adversarial court-driven model. I know both Stuart and Ronald. Click on this link to see and purchase Stuart’s and Ronald’s book.
