Reconciliation Counseling Laws

Many states have put in place laws that permit a spouse to initiate marriage counseling prior to a divorce being finalized. Having these laws in place help save marriages. Most states do not mandate marriage counseling for divorcing spouses, but the spouses often times have to sign a notice form that they are either opting for counseling or are waiving their rights to counseling.
