Help When You Need It
Sometimes the two of you just can’t work out the tricky areas of separating your lives. You need a little help to tease apart the attachments, the history, and work with the conflicting perspectives to determine the best division of your sentimental assets. Divorce mediation provides a great solution.
- Does your home hold a lot of sentimental value for both of you and you’re not sure which of you should get it, or if you should sell it?
- Do you have certain prize possessions that seem impossible to divide?
- Do you need a plan to tell your children?
- Do you want to have family holidays together after your divorce and want a plan to make that happen?
- Do you need guidance through your process but don’t want to get attorneys involved?
With 80 hours of mediation training, thousands of hours of coaching and systems training, I bring a unique skill set to the title “mediator.” I am specifically gifted to help you find common ground and meet each others’ needs. I hold space for you to have those important discussions that allow you to discover your best solutions. There’s always a way if you stay open to finding it.
You Stay in Control of the Outcome
Don’t leave your future, family, and finances to a judge to decide.
As much as a judge tries to care about the details of your life, to him or her your case is just another case to get through on the docket. S/he will never be as invested in the outcome as you are. Mediation allows you to stay in the driver’s seat of your own process while still having professional help.
My approach to mediation offers an effective way to approach decisions.
- Allowing the time and space you need to explore the far reaching implications of your decisions.
- Give place and grace for the sentimental reasons that you want what you want.
- Honoring all viewpoints, which allows a solution arises naturally and organically, becoming obvious to all.
- Supporting the needs-based approach, meaning we are not so concerned about making things even (50/50) as we are meeting everyone’s needs going forward. This can take many forms.
- Allowing ample time to brainstorm and consider many options. Not every option arises quickly.
After we work out these important points you can take them to your attorney for review and let him or her draft the legal agreements. This means only one or two hours of attorney time as opposed to dozens.
