How we work together

We will always encourage our clients to take the high road.

We start out by going through an in depth interview process to understand your situation and your goals. Once we have this information we proceed accordingly. If you desire to save your marriage, we will do everything in our power to help you accomplish that goal. We have a variety of resources and techniques we use to achieve that goal.

If a divorce is inevitable, we will work together to develop a plan of action to prepare you to find the best attorney for your situation, and achieve a fair and equitable settlement with the least amount of drama and conflict possible.  My goal is to  equip you with actionable and specific advice about protecting yourself as you go through your divorce. If children are involved, we will advise you of multiple resources to ease their pain and help them through the process as well.

Regardless of what your attorney may tell you, you don’t have to aggressively attack your spouse to stand up for yourself. You just need to be knowledgeable, strategic and mature enough to be firm with your boundaries and reasonable with your expectations. The more you can settle between the two of you, the less money you will pay your attorneys and the less pain and drama you and your children will go through. We can also provide you with practical and effective ways to establish healthy boundaries and dialog with your spouse as you go through the process.

We offer the following services:

Consultation and Planning session – $150.00

– One on one coaching – single consultation (approx. 1 – 1 ½ hours)

Once you retain our services, we start out with a comprehensive questionnaire designed to understand your specific situation and goals. That is followed up with a phone or Skype call. The purpose of the call is to educate you about your spouse, family court, terms and strategies for court and develop a plan of action. The type of advice that you receive will be designed to meet whatever phase of divorce you are at. Although every divorce has common components, you will have certain concerns and situations that are unique to you, your spouse and your specific circumstances.

The goal of this service is to provide you with all of the tools necessary to give you the best chance of a fair and equitable settlement in court, with the least amount of expense, drama and conflict as possible. By the end of this consultation, you will have a usable assessment of your spouse, your situation, and even yourself, to execute an effective plan of action. You will also  discover important  information about the family court system that your attorney will never share with you. This level of service is usually more than adequate to meet all of your consulting needs.

Additional Coaching – Hourly Option

You can receive ongoing coaching and advice as needed as changes in your situation occur. Most people won’t need this additional level of support. But if you are married to a difficult or high conflict spouse I will be here to help you every step of the way.

1 hour package – $100 per hour for ongoing support:

This package is only available to those who have completed their initial consultation. You will be given the option of selecting the number of consultation hours you would like to purchase. 

Areas that you might desire additional help with:

Court issues –
Concerns about your judge, your attorney, your legal fees, your ex-spouses behavior, tactics and assertions etc.

Moderating services
When you need assistance to respond to your spouse because you feel intimidated, find it hard to control your anger, or just want the best results possible to resolve conflict quickly and effectively without getting run over. Additionally, this can help you to build or strengthen your case when done properly. This level of service has proven highly effective for our clients.

Healthy boundaries with your spouse –
The reality is that many couples going through a divorce had an unhealthy relationship in many ways. That’s one of the main reasons they are getting divorced. Establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries with your spouse during this period is crucial for both you and your children. But making sure you don’t over-compensate in your response to attack and dominate your ex is crucial as well.

Emotional and decision support
There are many variables and facets to a divorce. Things come up quickly and the decisions you make are crucial to your long-term well being. When needed, we can help you through the process every step of the way.

Child issues and concerns
A child’s life changes forever as parents go through a divorce. Some will express their concerns and insecurities openly, most will not. Regardless of whether they share their feelings or not, you can be certain that they are hurting. Although there are many things in life that you have no control over, there are many things you can do to ease their pain during and after a divorce. We can direct you to quality resources and advise you on how to help them survive the changes and uncertainty that divorce brings.
