Video: Cordell & Cordell News – April 10, 2015

Dads Divorce, sponsor Cordell & Cordell and sister site have teamed up to present a series of weekly recap videos to keep you informed on the latest news and top stories.

This week, Cordell & Cordell published a summary of Principal Partner Joe Cordell’s recent Huffington Post column explaining the significance of the recent Amazon Family campaign to the firm’s mission.

A community of father bloggers is petitioning the retail giant to change the name of its parent-focused discount program from Amazon Mom to Amazon Family. That Amazon ignores the role dads play in child-rearing is an example of how fathers are frequently marginalized in the United States.

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

The story recounts the experience of Brian Meid, whose 5-year-old son Alex was abducted by his mother when she took the child to her home country of China and didn’t return. Because China is not party to the Hague Convention, there are very few options to coerce the mother to return the child.

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

Mediation gives divorcing couple a non-adversarial alternative to litigation that works to come to an out-of-court agreement with the help of a neutral third-party professional. The cost of mediation varies, but some courts will help cover part of the cost.
