What happens if a collaborative divorce stalls? Turn to mediation

ABA Book Briefs Blog features a divorce mediation excerpt from the book “Collaborative Law: Achieving Effective Resolution in Divorce without Litigation,” Second Edition by Pauline H. Tesler (excerpt):
If a collaborative case runs into problems, a “meta-mediator” can help everyone get through the challenging phase. Sometimes a “perfect storm” of challenging clients and challenging issues can stall a collaborative negotiation. If a mediator who understands the collaborative process is brought in to bear responsibility for managing the negotiating session, the lawyers can be free to work more intensively with their respective clients. And a third conflict-resolution professional in the room can sometimes help undo logjams in creative problem solving.
