As 2018 begins, I give life to a notion I’ve had for a while. I’m always trying to express what I try to help people to do as they bring their marriage to an end.
I’ve chosen to no longer do any litigation work, so I only work with people who understand that what they need to do is to come together in order to separate as a married couple.
Some people need very little help in doing so. For them I offer myself as a Mediator / Third Party Neutral. I don’t ‘represent’ either party, so I can’t give advice on whether any particular proposal is ‘good’ for either of them.
Some couples need more help and guidance and perhaps even advice about ‘what should I agree to’. For those, I join with other Collaborative Practice professionals to form a ‘team’ so that each spouse has his/her own attorney and we can add other professionals based on the support needs the couple may have.
With either support system, I simply see myself as helping the couple as they are “Divorcing Together”. Hence a new tagline and image are born. 🙂
