From the first litigated divorce I handled, decades ago, I thought there has got to be a better way for families to get through this difficult transition. Following up on that thought, I trained as a mediator and began mediating divorces. My experience as a mediator is that while mediation is enough help for some families to move through divorce in a healthier way, it is not enough support for others. The collaborative process provides this additional support to families who would like to avoid the negative impact of litigation and would benefit from the full support of a collaborative team that is committed to helping the family move through the transition of divorce without a court battle, keeping the well-being of the entire family at the forefront. The collaborative process provides full legal advice, emotional support and financial information and the ability to craft settlements that best support the family.
