Amicable Divorce: A New Trend or An Oxymoron?

Posted on July 27th, 2010 No Comments

In author Lisa Belkins’ blog for The New York Times, she explores the idea of an amicable divorce. The friendly divorce is defined by, being a divorce “in which agreements are reached in a mediator’s office, or through “collaboration” with a lawyer and maybe a therapist and financial adviser, rather than in a courtroom,” writes Belkins.

Mediation is growing in popularity. Belkins writes that not everyone wants to hate each other after their divorce. Some are concerned that, if there is a possibility to remain friends and stay friendly after a divorce, then there is a possibility to stay in the marriage. With divorce rates rising, it is encouraging to know that people have options, depending on their own personal situation.
