PERSONAL

Our unique process takes each decision one at a time. Both parties sit down at the table together, with their mediator, for a series of four to five 2-hour meetings at two week intervals within an 8-10 week period in order to have time to ponder and weigh the life changing and financial decisions at hand.

 

During the process, the identified issues are expertly negotiated and talked through giving an equal voice to both parties, against the landscape of the identified goals.
