CARMEL, IN – January 8, 2008 – Attorney and Mediator, Stephenie S. Jocham was a guest of Terri & Big Joe on 93.1 WIBC Morning News where she discussed current economic issues affecting divorce rates. While the first week of January is historically the busiest week each year for divorce filings, the interview focused on the new national statistics showing a decrease in divorces as a result of the recession. One of the topics Ms. Jocham addressed is the need to inform prospective clients about less expensive options including mediation and collaborative law, which are less costly, financially and emotionally, for parties considering divorce or dealing with family law matters.
