Divorce: Choosing the Correct Process for You & Your Family
Divorce is rarely easy, especially when litigated in the court system. Although ultimately a judge must grant a divorce through the courts, couples can settle their cases on their own or with the help of settlement-minded attorneys. There are different processes that can be used including direct negotiations, mediation and collaborative divorce. Your choice of process can make a big difference to the future of you and your family, both emotionally and financially. At this program, learn about the pros and cons of the different divorce processes and how best to choose one.

He spends his days frantically trying to reach the man, over the phone or on his beloved bicycle. It is only the patience and compassion of Samantha, the stranger who agrees to care for him, that offers the boy the chance to move on.
