Mediation and Religious Divorce: The Buzz

nav_top_lft_2009Last month, associate Rachel Goldenberg and I co-authored a piece about the ways in which Divorce Mediation might be able to help solve the “Get” crisis — an increasing problem faced by religious Jewish women when their putative ex-husband refuses to give them a religious divorce.  The piece struck a chord within the mediation community and has been picked up by The Huffington Post, The Times of Israel and now, we are so pleased that Mediate.com has entered into this conversation.

While our article focused on the many benefits that mediation might have in providing a forum for Jewish couples facing divorce, the same can be said for couples that practice other religious beliefs where a religious divorce is also a necessary part of the dissolution of their relationship. Asking for a civil divorce is difficult enough; asking for two divorces can be even more overwhelming.

Our original piece is found here: Five Ways That Divorce Mediation Can Help Resolve The Get Crisis. Join the discussion by commenting about your experiences.
