We welcome back our guest, Mark Baer (http://www.markbaeresq.com/), a family law attorney, 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 lawyers and judicial officers believe otherwise
•    Whether family law attorneys should have higher ethical obligations than other attorneys
•    Funding your children’s college/university education when child support isn’t enough or stops
•    What money represents


There seems to be a major disconnect between the way the public views mediation and how the attorneys and judicial officers view as mediation.  This is a conversation that is steeped in controversy.  Tune in and then let us hear your thoughts on our Facebook fan pages…and don’t forget to like us.   The Smart Divorce http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Smart-Divorce/202908933137654 and www.Facebook.com/DivorceSourceRadio
