You Thought Your Marriage Was Miserable - Wait Till You Get to Court
The breakup of a marriage almost always involves some level of conflict between spouses, but the process of litigation during divorce ratchets that conflict up to a level of devastation for all members of the immediate and even extended family. Instead of getting away from the turmoil by divorcing, the adversarial nature of a legal “fight” can actually create permanent emotional and financial damage.
In this excellent podcast Marilyn Miller, a psychotherapist, Steve Schechter, a lawyer and mediator, and Melynda Gulley, at mediator discuss how parents can create an emotionally supportive divorce that promotes a healthy relationship between themselves and a loving future for their children.
