Effective mediator removes obstacles to resolutions
Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. The structured process of mediation can help you both set aside anger and hostility and focus on the crucial issues concerning your children. Mediation can be a highly-effective tool for preserving stability and peace in your home during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. I am skilled at maneuvering negotiations toward settlements that protect your child’s best interests and your parental rights.
Assertive litigator makes your case in court
It may be necessary for you to fight for your children’s best interests at trial. If the other parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward you, negotiations may fail. If you believe the other parent poses a danger to your children’s well-being, you need to go to court to protect them. The uncertainty of litigation often compounds the stress and upheaval already present in your lives at this time. But with an assertive attorney by your side, you can feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
