Types of Surrogacy

There are two types of surrogacy: traditional and gestational diabetes. Traditional surrogacy, where the surrogate mother sacrifices her egg and carries the child to the intended parents. Surrogacy with the intended father or sperm or donor sperm are fertilized in a process called intrauterine insemination. Another option involves the creation of embryos by in vitro fertilization (IVF), and pass then one or more embryos into the uterus of the surrogate mother. With traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother is genetically related to the child.

Gestational surrogacy wherean embryo created by IVF and then transferred to the uterus of the surrogate mother. This is the most common type of surrogacy. With gestational surrogacy, the surrogate is not genetically related to the child.

5 Enablers civilized divorce

The real thing that you can do to reduce the difference in your divorce negotiations to make the experience.

If I pick up the phone to make another request, it does not tell the person on the other end to respond to something unusual "civilized divorce"? "Yes, it is." "I want one of these." To which I reply, "Great!" And we want to have a civilized divorce and creating a civilized divorce is not the same thing! What does it take to create a civilized divorce? I believe there are five key attributes that you're willing to bring with you to successfully call a civilized divorce.

1). Respect

Remember how you told the children that they can not always find someone like that, but they have to be respectful? The same goes for you! Treating your partner with respect is an important part of the process to maintain civilized. People who shout curses belittle Hohn, and invite your partners to snipe the same behavior back. And the behavior reflects the battle. And the battle will never be civilized.

There are other aspects of respect, you must have respect and behave respectfully to go to your partner. Civilized divorce, you really need to have to start with the self-respect! If you tell yourself that you are a loser, a bad mother, a lousy partner, loser? This type of behavior is addressed to you as destructive (if not more) than anything you could try in your partner. Have respect for yourself, your feelings, your strengths, your weaknesses. This provides a solid platform from which an emotional journey you to fend for themselves to survive with dignity and with a partner from a position of calm grounded handle.

And, finally, there is a civilized divorce, you have to have respect for their children. Most people say, "Well, of course," on it. And then I see people trying to restrict access to their partner or children, to decide that it is easier to get away from kids like to do with your partner, or their children were in a position where they will be asked to choose between their parents. "Where will you live the way, my dear," is actually one of the things that you ask your child disrespectful.

2). All desire to be good

This means that you, your children and your partner - and it does not mean that you have to be at the bottom of this list! But it also does not mean that you do everything you want and everything you want to fight for the children and food with your partner. Of course, everyone has a different definition of "OK", and not all definitions objectively measurable - and some of them!

So if you are looking for ways to make things work in the future, should any angle as much as possible and be prepared to listen to the needs and desires of your partner.Look decisions that determine their needs and not to disclose such a big impact as evenly as possible and away from children as possible.

3). Willingness to take responsibility

One of the most important parameters to get people to create a civilized divorce is a desire to understand that what happened in the relationship, they have to play their role. Most of the small part, to transfer part, an indirect role. It does not matter, what matters is ready to ask, and the responsibility for his part. This is not something that is absolutely necessary tobe communicated with your partner (although that certainly can increase civilized factor), it's more an inside job. This willingness to take responsibility is a willingness to take responsibility for shaping the future in a way that works for everyone involved.

4). Openness to the possible

If you need right in the negotiations on logistics and practical elements, which are sorted by the distance to be open to possibilities that the most beneficial, and produces a variety of creative solutions can be. Getting into these negotiations determined to get exactly what you are going exactly the way you want it is probably rocky divorce, if not completely uncivilized. Of course, to receive what you're thinking, but what's more important to spend some time to look at what is fundamental. There is a big difference between "I want a mini-van," and said, "I need access to a vehicle, which is large enough to transport children, a dog, and all of their hockey equipment." Use the mini-van is likely to be the solution. But who knows what is possible?

Another item on the possibility of having to open the possibility that good things are out of this sad event. Also seen as civilized, divorce can be a springboard to a better life for you, your partner and your children - if you are open to that possibility.

5). Sense of humor

Maybe this is a very black humor in this phase, but the sense of humor, though. Separation and divorce are not satisfied with the event. No matter how much pain and trauma caused by the event, it never happens that all look forward retreading or experience in their bucket list or plans. And keep your sense of humor is welcome relief from the hornet's nest emotions that accompany this journey time and creates a sense of perspective in the midst of pain.

I sometimes get the client, as we know from the last point, and ready to laugh at themselves, the situation and the vicissitudes of life, and all. When sorting your plans for children, house, money and dogs and in the midst of laughter, there are tears, regrets and farewells. It makes for a bitter and very effective mediation for them and for me.

You want a civilized divorce? Take the 5 settings and see their emotions and shift the dynamics between you dramatically. And watch our 5-inhibitor products, so you also know what not to do!

Divorce and the Second Amendment

All the current discussions of violence control and the Second Amendment, reminds me of a divorce case I mediated years ago where the Husband asserted his Second Amendment rights.  The dispute concerned a parenting plan for the children.  The Mother had lost a brother in a gun accident. The Father owned guns and asserted his Second Amendment right to guns when the children were with him.  The Mother did not want their children to have parenting time with their Father if there were guns in his home. The Father had stored the guns in a locked “gun locker” but the Mother was not satisfied. If I recall the case was resolved when the Father agreed to not have the guns in his home when he was parenting the children in his home.

Domestic abuse - you are not alone

Domestic abuse is something that unfortunately continues to rear its ugly head in our society.

Research carried out by the Office for National Statistics calculates that two million people suffered domestic abuse at the hands of either partners or relatives in 2012. This equates to approximately 1.2 million women and 800,000 men being the victims of physical, emotional and sexual attacks, usually within the supposed safety of their own home. Whilst these statistics have not risen significantly from previous years, the scale of the recently published figures is alarming nonetheless.

Organisations such as Refuge, commenting on the recent figures, recognise that such abuse can include psychological, sexual or emotional abuse. It also includes threats to carry out such abuse.

Should an immediate issue arise causing a threat to health, safety or well-being, it is important to remember that the police are there to assist, often with a specialist domestic incidents unit, who can offer practical advice and support. However, police intervention may not offer an appropriate, longer term solution and assistance from the court may be required. Here at Pannone we understand the sensitivity of dealing with such issues and as leaders in the field we are well placed to provide expert legal advice.

We are a team of specialist family law solicitors in Manchester. For more advice about domestic abuse please read our family law blog or follow us on Twitter @Divorce_experts.

Sarcastic or not, these topics have been an online sensation and not just because people like to laugh. It’s no shock to the system people genuinely like to affiliate their experiences with others and hear someone else say something they’ve secretly thought in private or have been dying to blurt out publicly themselves! Certain situations and particularly these videos can be quite far-fetched for some, that’s granted. However our emotions can be somewhat far-fetched! So sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that extremity is not just within our emotions alone but with others as well, and quite frankly sometimes there is a need for extreme…
When it comes to our experiences, break ups and divorce; as woman we naturally look for outlets in which we can either talk or express our opinions and emotions. That may be in an intimate setting with you best girlfriends in a garden cafe or perhaps a far-fetched way of release similar to Emily’s blog advice on a public internet site.
POINT IS: There are many ways different ways of expression, this being one way. It Might not be your cup of tea, but find out what is! Expression is healthy! What is your self expression then?
What’s your way of Expression?
Till next time!
Lots of hugs
