What is Collaborative Divorce? Collaborative Divorce is an innovative approach where a couple agrees in writing to dissolve their marriage with respect, dignity and honesty. These divorces often resolve more quickly than traditional divorce litigation and for a fraction of the cost. Couples also benefit from the use of trained professionals such as attorneys, financial and child specialists and therapists to reach the best settlement that meets the needs of all involved.

Besides the time and financial benefit of collaborative divorce, the primary benefit is that participants avoid the trauma, character assassination and humiliation that take place during most traditionally-litigated divorces. The collaborative process seeks to preserve relationships. This is done with the idea that most divorces involve children and couples must co-parent for many years after a divorce is done.

This method of divorce was started by a family law litigator, Stu Webb, about a decade ago. Mr. Webb was tired of seeing how families were destroyed and resources depleted after “scorched earth” litigation. Back then, divorcing couples only had two options, doing it themselves or do it through litigation, which inevitably led to years of fighting, court appearances, stress, trauma and financial devastation.

Since then, collaborative divorce has spread like wildfire and more and more, couples are choosing collaborative divorce. These couples are spending a fraction of the money they normally would on a traditional litigation as well as a fraction of the time. They are saving time and money, but most importantly, through the help of trained professionals and divorce coaches, they are preserving relationships for the years after a divorce enabling them to effectively co-parent. They are also protecting their children from the bloodbath that is family litigation while having the protection, and advice of their own attorney.

It is estimated that internationally over 20,000 professionals have received training in collaborative divorce. Erin states, “This is definitely not a flash in the pan type of divorce. It is here to stay and hopefully grow and grow. Locally, we are training ourselves every chance we get and have been trained by one of the best, Pauline Tesler, a leader in the international collaborative movement. We are very excited about this, and want to see less emotional destruction and more peace. Hopefully, this can help many people in our local area and internationally.”

If you are anticipating a divorce, or if you know someone who is, please let him or her know this is a new option in the Central Valley and invite that person to attend the February 12th luncheon. This is an alternative that many couples would choose if they knew it was an option. We just need your help to get the word out!

If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like more information or would like to speak to an attorney who can help you, contact Childs & Childs at your earliest convenience. We would be more than happy to sit down and discuss your options with you.

Private Detective in London Announce Child Computer Monitoring Services in Light of BBC News Article Dated 4th February 2013: Alarming New Trend in Online Sex Abuse

(PRWEB UK) 4 February 2013

According to the BBC news report dated 4th Feb 2013 and research carried out by a child protection watchdog suggests children are increasingly being groomed over the internet for the purpose of online sex abuse. The organisation said that parents need to talk to their children about safety online. Figures show that 1,145 reports to Ceop in 2012 relate to incidents of online grooming.

The report goes on to say that victims are tricked by the abusers by pretending to be someone the child already knows and then con them into giving their password before threatening them into engaging in sexual activates with them. More needs to be done to protect children on line before they become a victim of abuse.

Private Detective in London offer parental monitoring that can be downloaded onto a child computer which will report all the activity that has happened on their childs computer such as: incoming and outgoing email and social network messages, times the child has logged on and off of the computer, websites visited and key strokes typed, among other services. This software can be monitored by the parent with daily reports.

A spokesperson from Private Detective in London said:

Parental computer monitoring software will keep the parent informed about the childs online activity including the times they are logged in. This can help prevent anything untoward happening on line and it will show if your child is on the computer when they should be asleep.

Private Detective in London has a pool of skilled and highly trained private detectives and private investigators in the UK and abroad. This nationwide company includes their long associated business partners Private Detective in Manchester who can supply investigation services in and around the London area.
