When Divorce is Imminent

When divorce is imminent, you may consider hiring a divorce mediator, an attorney, or you may choose to represent yourself.

It’s January and right after the first of the year, I started receiving calls from people ready to take steps to move forward with divorce. I have witnessed that people who are no longer happily married often stay together to get through certain events, including the holidays. Once the event passes, the couples who have patiently, or not so patiently been waiting to move forward, take action. One form of action is to reach out to a professional mediator, like me, who can, as a neutral third party, help a separating couple make sense of all the decisions that need to be made to sever their ties, and, when children are involved, help them make decisions that are in the best interest of their children.
