I don't think "Find A Divorce Attorney" is at the top of most people's New Year's resolutions, but that seems to be the way it is going in my circle of friends. In addition to my friend in Arizona last year, several others have brought the topic up of divorce lately. I thought it would be a good time to revisit a post I wrote on Divorce Mediation. An apt summary of the post is that more often than not both parties to a divorce will be happier if most of the issues can be taken care of through mediation.
My advice: give mediation a try, especially if children are involved.
