A Better Approach for Families
I am committed to help families going through separation and divorce, or who are changing terms of a separation agreement or court order, resolve their issues in a respectful, efficient and cost-effective way.
Compared to traditional negotiation and litigation, alternative dispute resolution processes, including mediation, collaborative law, and arbitration, are generally:
- less expensive
- less stressful
- better tailored to the needs of the parties.
Alternative Dispute Resolution is especially useful when an ongoing relationship exists between the parties. In cases where children are involved, it is important for parents to be able communicate about day-to-day issues after separation. This can be extremely challenging when there has been a traumatic separation process. We work on restoring or building communication skills during the separation process, while addressing the substantive issues, such as children’s residence, decision-making, child support, spousal support, and division of property in a way that allows both parties to move forward with their lives.
