Mediation Preparation Work

Held on Sunday's

10am - 5pm

Here is The Truth About Divorce:

  • Divorce is full of uncertainty and stress 

  • Divorce can lead to drawn-out legal battles 

  • Divorce can create a lifetime of resentment, suffering, and unhappiness

  • Divorce is emotionally charged

No matter how level-headed you and your ex-partner may be
Emotions WILL Run The Show

Getting Your Needs, Wants, and Desires Met With Compassion and Integrity

Perhaps to no surprise, research has shown that most people do not have the emotional skill set or the Emotional IQ to peacefully navigate a fair separation agreement. All too often divorcing couples begin the mediation approach with good intention and they fail because one party's emotions end up hijacking the desired process. If you pause for a moment you will see that this makes perfect sense given that divorce is likely the most emotionally charged and emotionally overwhelming experience of one's life. We believe, that for a successful collaborative outcome you require the right training to help teach you the necessary skills to ensure a far more successful legal process.
