Course DescriptionMediation in a divorce proceeding benefits attorneys and the parties alike. Not only is it more cost-effective and allows for greater flexibility than litigation, but the end result is an accepted agreement between the parties to the divorce. In this program, Kim Werner, Program Manager of the Divorce Mediation Group, illustrates how the mediation process works from the inside out and how it benefits both clients and the attorney's practice.

Kim was instrumental in developing “Divorce Mediation 101,” a free workshop for those who are considering divorce or have already begun the divorce process. One of her driving goals is to “educate, educate, educate” everyone about divorce mediation and to make mediation the go-to solution to divorce, rather than the expensive and sometimes traumatic litigation solution.
