King County Divorce Rate Spikes 8% in Past Two Years; This Wednesday, an Online "Collaborative" Book Chat, Hosted by King County Collaborative Law, Examines Ways to Cope, Co-Parent & Thrive After Divorce

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - Since America's financial crisis flatlined the nation's economy in 2008, King County domestic divorce and separation filings have increased 8.15% according to the King County Department of Judicial Administration. The rate of divorce and separation in the county increased from 7,194 to 7,781 cases. For many families within the Puget Sound region, the breakdown in marital relationships has meant unwanted anxiety, stressful co-parenting dynamics and a harsh financial burden.

This Wednesday evening, March 30th at 5pm, King County Collaborative Law will play host to an interactive book chat featuring Huffington Post blogger and author Monique A. Honaman that will explore her new book, "The High Road Has Less Traffic." This exciting, web-based format, will allow the public to ask questions and dialogue with Ms. Honaman, discussing how to find a successful path toward the future for parents and a post divorce family. 

King County Collaborative Law is an organization of 'Collaborative Law Practitioners,' including lawyers, financial experts and family/child specialists who help families through their divorce transitions with an emphasis on a non-adversarial divorce process. The intended outcome of a Collaborative Divorce is to help divorcing spouses to work together instead of against each other throughout the legal process. Families with children are additionally supported to focus on co-parenting and the needs of their kids. Concerns about your financial future, your children and your emotional health are addressed in a respectful, compassionate manner, helping spouses build a new life that is meaningful to both.
