Family Mediation Learn More

Mediation is an efficient and effective tool that can be used to settle a variety of disputes.  It is especially useful when disputes involve family members.  Never is there a more important opportunity to preserve relationships than when they are affected by disputes within a family.  Even after the initial dispute is settled, family members must continue to interact with one another, making important decisions that affect their loved ones.  Mediation makes it possible to settle even the most contentious disputes, while still preserving family bonds, in an informal and confidential manner.

Co-Parenting Coordination Learn More

Many parents choose to remain in an unhappy marriage solely in an effort to avoid the pain their children will experience as the result of a divorce. Child support, time sharing and varying parenting styles are some of the most important issues that arise during and after a divorce. Fortunately, there is a way to move on from an unhappy marriage, while still keeping your children healthy and happy.

Elder CareLearn More

Families often know how common it is for children in a transitioning family to be at the heart of family disputes, but it is just as common for elder adults to be the focus of major decisions.  When family members find themselves in a position to determine the medical care and living arrangements for an older relative, arguments occur and hard feelings are the norm.  There is a better way and it is possible to settle family disputes related to the care of an older loved one without destroying family ties.  Mediation provides a civil, family-focused resolution to even the most complicated disputes over the care of a loved one.

Collaborative Divorce Learn More

Many families find that collaborative divorce is the best way for them to transition from one phase of their life to another.  Divorce can be difficult for everyone in a family, so finding a civilized, respectful way to accomplish the transition is essential for protecting everyone’s well-being.  Instead of battling out the issues that arise during a divorce in a courtroom, collaborative divorce leaves the control in the hands of those who are affected most.  Divorcing couples make choices about their future, instead of leaving the arrangement in the hands of strangers.
