There seems to be a major disconnect between the way the public views mediation and how the lawyers and judicial officers view mediation. This is a conversation that is steeped in controversy.
We welcome back our guest, Mark Baer, a family law lawyer, family mediator, and collaborative law practitioner in Pasadena, California and who has been practicing for twenty years. Mark shares his opinions and views about the family law system, how it can be better and provide more creative ways on getting through divorce. Deborah Moskovitch, Steve Peck and Mark explore a variety of concepts regarding mediation. This program isn’t just a standard outline of mediation but shakes it up a little in this controversial and lively discussion.
How do you think outside the box in mediation? Mark Baer encourages you to ponder as we discuss:
- The way in which bias impacts family law litigation
- Why “evaluative mediation” is not really mediation, even though most family lawyers and judicial officers believe otherwise
- Whether family law laywers should have higher ethical obligations than other family lawyers
- Funding your children’s college/university education when child support isn’t enough or stops
- What money represents
