Is Mediation or Collaborative Divorce right for you?
Cooperation, respect, and clear communication are at the heart of mediation and collaborative practice. What you bring to the table is as important as what I bring.
Knowing yourself and what you want, for yourself and your family, will help you choose the path and negotiate an agreement that offers you dignity, resolution, and the ability to shape your future.
Are you in the right place?
If you see yourself in the traits and goals shared by my clients, the answer is yes
My collaborative family law and mediation clients:
- Seek a respectful, non-adversarial process
- Want to protect their assets, children, and other family relationships
- Are willing to be honest, communicate clearly, and cooperate to find creative solutions
- Are focused on the future, not the past
- Know their family and financial situation better than anyone else
- Take responsibility for their own personal and financial wellbeing
- Believe in reaching mutually agreeable solutions even if there is a history of disagreement
My divorce clients, in particular:
- Want to make their own decisions rather than having decisions imposed upon them in court
- Want to provide stability for their children
- Seek to create healthy, equitable parenting plans that put the children first
- Want an alternative to traditional divorce even if they are in a state of high conflict
