Many spouses begin squirrelling away assets in order to avoid having to share them with the soon-to-be-ex in the course of property distribution.

When divorce mediation is most -- and least -- likely to work

Mediation is getting to be a very popular way of settling divorce cases outside of court. Not only is it more economical and efficient than litigation, it also gives the parties more control over the outcome of their case, which leads to more sustainable agreements.

Stay in control of your future through divorce mediation

If you are contemplating divorce you are likely uncertain and anxious about what the future holds. You probably have several questions racing through you mind. Will I have custody of my children? How will the property be divided? Where will I live? Is my standard of living going to change?
