Collaborative divorce is a process that allows couples who have decided to end their marriage relationship to work together on a plan for their divorce in the most amicable, speedy, and cost effective way possible.

One concern that divorcing couples have is whether they will have enough financial security to go on with their lives. Depending on how each individual relates to the subject of money and finances, this can often result in fear, distrust, and an unwillingness to go forward into what seems to be an abyss.

As a financial neutral, I can help them both face the reality of their situation and discover the possible paths forward to optimize their financial future. My years of experience as a mediator help me to work with couples in an even handed way in which I develop a deep understanding of the unique way each party relates to finances.
