Choose mediation or collaborative law. Eliminate the fear, anger and uncertainty. Save money. And keep your separation and divorce out of court.
You have choices when it comes to your separation and divorce. You can battle it out using attorneys, and have a judge make decisions for you if you cannot agree. Or you can work together with the help of compassionate and experienced divorce professionals to resolve all the terms of your divorce.
Will you air the dirty laundry of your marriage in public? Or do you want to work through matters privately in a supportive and non-judgmental environment?
Will your separation leave lasting emotional scars on your children? Or will you protect your children by working together as coparents?
Mediation and the collaborative law process offer a way for you to separate with grace and dignity. We provide a safe environment where you can discuss practical solutions without the expense, stress, and uncertainty of going to court. We’ll help you divide assets and liabilities fairly, create appropriate parenting plans, and establish separate, independent new lives.
Wherever you are in the process, we’ll meet you there. Separation and divorce bring up a lot of emotions. We’ll help you minimize the stress of making decisions and move forward one step at a time. Our style is low-key, non-confrontational, and facilitative. We’ll work in short but focused sessions to give you time to process information and make smart decisions. We are patient and tireless in pursuit of win-win solutions.
Along the way, you’ll have access to our network of experts, including divorce financial analysts, therapists, realtors, mortgage loan officers, appraisers, pension valuation experts, insurance agents, and child psychologists. These professionals can provide advice and education to expand your available options.
