A whole chapter discusses the choice of decision-making methods and uses plain language to explain the vital role of a lawyer's advice during mediation.
Clients facing divorce do better emotionally when they know the legal basics. They are more likely to move through the stages of grief to a place where they can make good decisions for the future.
Decision making is also aided by clients having easy access to legal information about child support, property division, and court procedure. And the practical chapter called, "Getting Legal Help" can improve your clients' ability to make a good choice of lawyer.
