Elana Katz - Director, Family and Divorce Mediation Program, Ackerman Institute for the Family
"Divorce mediation can save 5 to 10 percent of the cost of litigation", relates Elana Katz, director, Family and Divorce Mediation Program, Ackerman Institute. She serves as a coach helping couples make decisions ultimately resulting in a settlement agreement. In this process, individuals agree not to go to court and to solve problems in a less adversarial way. Mediation not only saves money, but also time, usually taking a matter of months as opposed to an adversarial court environment where settlement can take years. Katz provides more information on Getting Your Money's Worth with Judith West.

Dr. Eric J. Dammann - Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalyst
Is talking about money within your family off-limits? But when money is not talked about within the family, conflict is created within siblings and lasting, hurt feelings are created among heirs. Dr. Eric Dammann, psychoanalyst talks about them on Getting Your Money's Worth with Judith West. He says an estate is more than a total of assets. It's a proxy for love, power, control and other emotions. He advises a practical approach to an emotional issue. Responsible parents talk abut awkward subjects (think "birds and bees"). The same holds true for your estate.
