Praise for Collaborative Divorce Handbook
"There are many roads to peace. Whether you engage in collaborative practice, which by definition includes the provision that professionals will not represent the parties in litigation, or some other process for respectful conflict resolution, you will find Collaborative Divorce Handbook to be an invaluable resource for deepening your understanding and enhancing your skills as a peacemaker."
"Collaborative lawyering is a promising new way of resolving disputes through joint problem solving rather than adversary litigation that has particular appeal for divorce cases. Whether you are a client who seeks to learn more about it or a lawyer using it who desires a wise guiding hand, this book is an invaluable resource."
"Written by one of the innovative thinkers in the field, Collaborative Divorce Handbook is a treasure of information for all professionals interested in collaborative divorce. Easy to read, expansive, and chock-full of resources, it is bound to become a classic."
"Family law is changing. As more people realize that the adversarial process is expensive, degrading, and stressful, they look for alternatives and find it in various forms of alternative dispute resolution. Woody Mosten is the nationally recognized leader of this movement, and his book on collaborative practice literally will be 'The Handbook' we will all follow."
What people are saying - Write a review
Go ahead and read the book, but do NOT, I repeat, do NOT ascribe to Ron Ouskys theme of collaborative divorce. Get a "real" attorney and do things by the book. Ron has some simplistic views of the real world, and he is completely unaware of what is truly happening with divorce. Actually, Ron is a complete idiot! Trust me, as a Ron Ousky victim, he is completely inadequate at either understanding or describing a divorce situation. Ron is a moron...Ron Ousky is a complete moron...
