How to Avoid Being Bullied in Divorce
Sherman Oaks, Calif. (PRWEB) September 16, 2009
Carmen Campeas, a highly regarded family law attorney with nearly 20 years of experience practicing law in the San Fernando Valley, is offering a free resource for anyone going through a divorce who is dealing with a bullying spouse.
"How to Avoid Being Bullied in Divorce" is a practical guide, based on Campeas' experience in handling a wide range of divorce and child custody cases, that offers specific tips for how to avoid being bullied during a divorce. It is available for free download at Campeas' Web site.
"Dealing with a bully adds to the exhaustion, powerlessness and frustration people feel during divorce but there are some very practical things that you can do to make sure that your soon-to-be ex-spouse doesn't continue to abuse his or her power over you throughout the process of divorce," said Campeas.
Campeas' practice is unique in that she emphasizes mediation as an alternative to litigation, seeking to minimize conflict between the divorcing parties, make child custody arrangements easier to establish, and reduce the overall legal and emotional costs incurred during lengthy divorce battles.
"Divorce and child custody disputes far too often turn into bitter, ugly fights that involve aggressive lawyers, huge legal bills and bad feelings that linger for a lifetime," said Campeas. "You can take active steps to stop a bully from rushing you into poor decisions. There are options to just giving in because you are too tired to fight anymore. Once you have been empowered, options such as mediation and collaborative law can be used to resolve these disputes in a more peaceful and respectful manner."
Campeas was born in Cuba and raised in the U.S. She earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology from California State University at Northridge and her law degree from Pepperdine University Law School. Campeas is past President and current Chair for the Coalition for Collaborative Divorce, a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, State Bar of California (Family Law Section), Women Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association.
