Video: Cordell & Cordell News – April 10, 2015

Cordell & Cordell, along with its sponsored sites Dads Divorce and Men’s Divorce, presents a news video for the week of April 10, 2015.

Cordell & Cordell posted a summary of Principal Partner Joe Cordell’s most recent column in the Huffington Post explaining how the recent Amazon Family campaign relates to the firm’s mission

A community of dad bloggers recently started a petition to coerce retail giant Amazon to change the name of its parent-focused discount program from “Amazon Mom” to “Amazon Family.” That the company opts for the Amazon Mom title is an example of how fathers are frequently marginalized.

Dads Divorce added a new article about the dangers of international child abduction.

The story details the experience of Brian Meid, whose 5-year-old son Alex was abducted when his mother took him to her home country of China and never returned. When a child is abducted to a country that is not party to the Hague Convention, there are shockingly few options for parents to fight for their return.

Men’s Divorce published the first of a two-part series by Indianapolis family law attorney Kimberly McCabe explaining everything you need to know about mediation.

Mediation is a non-adversarial alternative to litigation that works to resolve issues out of court with the help of a neutral third-party professional.

The cost of mediation in family law cases varies, although courts will often help cover the costs. For many divorcing couples, mediation is a more attractive and less expensive option than litigation.
