Need help with my midterm for Family Law
and Divorce Mediation
. I have to prepare a two page memo with the information in mind below:
David and Angela have reached family mediation day. Using information presented in previous units, prepare a memo indicating the number of sessions necessary to resolve David and Angela's current family conflict. Be sure to substantiate your conclusion.
Also note how family law mediation in the situation of David and Angela would differ significantly from negotiations in a labor relations setting. What questions could a mediator use to defuse the anger that David and Angela may feel as the session begins?
Your memo should be at least two typed pages in length.
Here is info about the couple from my previous units:
David and Angela have been married for seven years. Last year, while married to David, Angela wrote a book that has sold 5,000 copies in her local area. The royalties received from Angela's book sales during the 12 months prior to the divorce totaled $34,000. One month prior to filing for divorce, Angela sold the copyright to her book for $300,000 to a publisher. The publisher will pay Angela in equal monthly installments at the rate of $25,000 per month, beginning two months after her divorce from David is final, until the $300,000 is paid in full.
