My Three Beefs with our System, my Colleagues, and The WV Legal Aid Society:
- That the family law court system of resolving parenting and divorce issues is, by definition, “adversarial”;
- That family law attracts too many adversarial, “win at any cost”, personality types into the practice; and,
- The Legal Aid Society, contrary to WV Supreme Court expectations will not negotiate a parenting plan that requires the alternate dispute resolution tool called “mediation.
What if there were a better way?
