Can mediation work in my divorce?

If you're dreading the courtroom proceedings of divorce, you're not alone--many people wish there was an alternative to traditional litigated divorce. And in fact, there is. Mediation provides a different forum for divorce negotiations, involving a third-party mediator who helps forge agreement outside the courtroom. There are many benefits to this approach, but whether it's the right one for you depends on several factors. 

Husband of Geena Davis wants divorce

There are many things that bring heartache to a person these days, but one of the worst can be a divorce. Pennsylvania couples who have decided to end their marriage often have a hard time telling their family and friends about their decision. Celebrity couples, however, often have a hard time keeping their divorce news to only friends and family. Yet another long-time celebrity marriage is ending.

Divorce and visitation during the holiday season

The ending of a marriage can be the hardest on the children. It also seems the holiday season adds even more stress to the already difficult circumstances children of divorce face. Pennsylvania parents making decisions on visitations schedules will want to consider the effects their plans have on the children.

Audrina Patridge's ex wants change in divorce agreement

Most partners in a Pennsylvania marriage give the union everything they have to make it work. Sometimes the marriage does last until death parts them, but sometimes it ends in divorce. That was the case for The Hills star, Audrina Patridge, and Corey Bohan. Even though they were only married for 10 months, Patridge wants a divorce.

Divorce sought by reality star, former NBA player

Pennsylvania fans of the reality show "Love and Hip Hop Hollywood Season 4" are familiar with Keyshia Cole and former NBA player Daniel Gibson. After a seven-year marriage and the birth of a son, the two have decided to divorce. The show has addressed some of the issues the two have gone through during and since filing for divorce.

Real estate mogul and wife in court for divorce settlement

Divorce can cost a lot. Aside from the emotional, and sometimes physical, toll it takes on couples going through it, it can also hit both parties in the wallet. Most Pennsylvania couples will not have come close to spending the amount one socialite has paid out as she seeks a divorce from her billionaire husband.

Comedian Ron White and wife divorce

A divorce between a Pennsylvania couple can go smoothly, with complete agreement on every point of asset division, or it can be a battle, where every little detail involves a mental and emotional struggle. Most separations fall somewhere in between those two. The divorce between Margo Rey and comedian Ron White appears to be full of contention.

MLB shortstop and wife fuel divorce fire over jurisdiction

Sports fans in Pennsylvania who follow the personal lives of their favorite superstars know many who get married do not stay married. A divorce for those who fit in that category can sometimes be difficult, as they rarely play for a team based in their home state. Such is the case for MLB shortstop, Addison Russell, and his estranged wife.

Drummer and wife agree on terms of divorce

Splitting up assets and determining details on child custody and financial support is not easy for a Pennsylvania couple going through a divorce. Spelling out those many of those terms in a prenuptial agreement before getting married may make it easier should the couple subsequently decide to divorce. Although many people see drawing up a prenup as planning for divorce, it is actually more of a protective measure -- some refer to it as an insurance policy -- just in case it does happen.
