Divorce Research: Family Law Mediation’s Benefits
first posted on: 9/4/2005
Latest research leaves no doubt as to family and divorce mediation’s long-lasting and positive effects on children of divorce, child custody and family law disputes.
Scientific studies of divorce and child custody researcher, clinician and mediator, Professor Robert Emery, Ph.D. demonstrate the astonishing long term benefits to children of families who take control of their own destiny, and attempt to work out their own agreements in child custody or divorce mediation.
These are summarized in popular terms in Dr. Emery’s recently published book, The Truth About Children and Divorce. This compelling research shows that even a modest investment of time and money (5 hours of mediation at the time of divorce) brings substantial benefits, as measured 12 years later!
We’re fortunate to have Dr. Emery’s collaboration in the new section of our website detailing scientific research confirming child custody and divorce mediation’s persistent and positive effects on families.
(See also our website’s section on Why Choose Mediation? for other compelling reasons to consider mediation of your divorce case or parenting dispute.)
Also consider our website’s acclaimed Frequently Asked Questions and Myths resources, where we answer other questions and debunk commonly held misunderstandings − regarding Colorado divorce laws, court procedures and alternative dispute resolution alternatives, such as family mediation.
Also, see our “Spotlight” or other feature articles, where we discuss in detail other Colorado legal, procedural (including divorce law and family mediation) or parenting topics. Presently, we look in depth at:
