Can’t My Mediator Tell Me My Legal Rights?
As mediators, we can give you legal information, but not individualized legal advice.
At Peace Talks, we feel strongly about client education. We have a Client Library full of divorce and legal information which is free and open to the public, and we have many worksheets and handouts that cover all aspects of legal information. They are available on ourweb site.
We give every client a copy of Your Divorce Advisor: A Lawyer and a Psychologist Guide You Through the Legal and Emotional Landscape of Divorce (Fireside 2001). Diana Mercer, a mediator at Peace Talks, wrote this book, and you can also order it from www.Amazon.com It’s important to us that you know your rights and that you’re comfortable with your decisions.
You’ll need to speak with your individual lawyer for legal advice, and how the legal information you gather might be applied to your benefit in your individual case.
