High-Stakes Divorce and Mediation

October 13, 2016
Faculty Member: Hon. Michele F. Lowrance (Ret.), Family Law Mediator and Attorney

Facilitator: Dan Couvrette, CEO and Publisher of Divorce Magazine, Family Lawyer Magazine, and DivorcedMoms.com

When a couple is faced with contentious child custody and financial issues during a divorce, hiring a family lawyer and going to court may seem like the only option. However, it is possible to find solutions to these issues without going to court. Michele Lowrance outlines the benefits of mediation in a high-stakes divorce.

This session will discuss:
  • what is typically involved in divorce mediation
  • the benefits of mediation when it comes to working through challenging child custody and financial issues
  • what a mediator does when parties reach an impasse because they can't come to an agreement regarding child custody and assets
  • the different ways people can manage their reactivity when they feel like lashing out at their spouse during divorce mediation
  • what happens when both parties' family lawyers are contributing to the conflict
  • whether financial professionals are involved in high-stakes divorces
  • whether mental-health professionals are ever involved in serious child custody issues
