        http://www.themarkslawfirm.com St. Louis (314) 993-6300 O'Fallon, MO (636) 486-4136 Not every divorce has to be a contentious, drama-filled battle like in the movie, “Kramer vs. Kramer.”  In fact, you and your spouse may be one of many couples that would like to avoid that harsh path and fortunately, different methods of moving through the divorce process have evolved.   Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) refers broadly to settling legal matters outside of the traditional judicial process.  Rather than prepare for a contested trial before a judge, you and your spouse will use ADR to avoid the traditional adversarial process and try to work together in a more amicable fashion.  After an agreement is reached, it would be submitted to the court like an uncontested divorce.   In the family law context, two types of ADRs tend to be popular – Mediation and Collaborative Law.  In practical terms, both approaches offer many of the same benefits – keeping your records private and off the internet, affordability, reduced stress, less risk, more flexibility and, most importantly, the opportunity to shape your own futures.   In Mediation, you, your spouse and a third-party mediator work together to resolve all disputed issues relating to custody, property and support.  You share information, meet separately and together with the mediator, and make good faith efforts to reach an agreeable outcome.  However, if you are unable to reach agreement, however, either of you has the option of stopping the process and proceeding in the traditional manner in court.   In Collaborative Law, you and your spouse must agree to commit to a solution-oriented process.  As part of that commitment, each of you must have an attorney trained in the collaborative law approach.  You will share information and have meetings collectively to work through the various issues of custody, property and support.  As a further indication of the commitment to the process, if you and your spouse do not reach an agreeable outcome, before proceeding further in the traditional manner in court, each of you must hire new attorneys.  Collaborative Law, then, has more built-in incentives to reach an agreement than mediation.

            from Alison Margaret Shaw Added 289 2 0

            Mediation is a voluntary, alternative form of dispute resolution and facilitated discussion, where people in conflict come together in a safe and fair environment to try and settle disputes with the support of an independent third party - the mediator. At SHAW Mediation Australia, our mediators are nationally accredited and legally trained, and take a neutral, non-judgmental stance, so you can be frank and candid about your concerns. Mediation takes place in private to preserve the reputation of all involved, and is mostly facilitated as a face-to-face discussion where you feel most comfortable and at a time suitable to you. Our mediators encourage active listening between everyone and work to level the playing field. We ensure that the parties feel safe, respected, listened to and heard during the discussion and negotiation. In addition, mediation offers a flexible process, allowing the participants to control the flow of conflict resolution, which can eventually lead to mutually satisfying and lasting outcomes while preserving relationships. From start to finish, mediation can be fast and only take three weeks to three months to resolve all concerns, depending on the nature of the dispute and the number of participants involved. As a result, by choosing mediation you can minimise long term stress, avoid the cost of a court hearing and achieve your desired outcome at all levels, leaving you with more time to spend on your relationships, your business and the things that matter.

                • The Addition Trailer


                  from Michael Gibson Added

                  The Addition tells the story of a mediation between two neighbours in dispute over a proposed addition. The mediation process reveals that the strident positions of both sides mask completely different and more vulnerable issues and leads to a surprising and not necessarily comfortable conclusion. Cybil and Alex are a professional couple in their late thirties. He’s an architect and she’s a nurse. They want to add a small addition to the back of their house but have learned that their long time neighbour, Barbara has filed an objection with the city. Barbara is a sixty year old former journalist who lives alone in the house next door. They used to be friendly but now they don’t speak to one another. Cybil and Alex hire a mediator, Max Wrathburn, to see if there’s a way to resolve the conflict with Barbara. Max convenes the mediation in Cybil and Alex’s dining room. Initially, Barbara is rude and angry and Max has to stop them all from shouting and insulting each other. Barbara explains that she fears the addition will add shade to her garden and kill her flowers. She is contemptuous of their “bourgeois, consumerist greed and vanity” and argues that their house is already huge for just two people. Max tries to understand needs Alex and Cybil hope to satisfy with the addition. Alex stubbornly says they need more space. That’s it. Barbara suggests that the real reason is to avoid confronting their marriage problems. Alex is enraged but Cybil is quiet. Max gently encourages Cybil to speak. Once Cybil starts to speak honestly, Alex and Barbara in turn share their stories and the dynamic starts to change and leads to surprising revelations and an unexpected conclusion.
