- You wish to make your own decisions together, after understanding the range of available options you have based on your specific situation.
- You would like to understand the financial and legal implications of the choices you can make.
- You want to include planning for successful futures as part of your divorce.
- You value working with a professional who has over 30 years of experience helping people address parenting and financial issues in their divorces and separations.

Financial Analysis and Divorce Education
As part of the mediation process, Mark analyzes your financial situation and prepares financial reports to help all understand it and focus on the parts that matter. He provides general education about divorce, financial, and parenting decisions, and helps you organize your thinking. Mark breaks down the divorce process so everyone has time to process, think through possibilities, and approach the questions at a measured pace and in a sequence tailored to your situation.
Mediation: One Step at a Time
Divorce can feel overwhelming, so mediation with Mark takes place over several sessions. Each session is typically two hours long. That way the divorce can be approached one step at a time, giving everyone time first to learn and then address only the question that needs to be addressed then … without getting overloaded. By approaching divorce methodically everyone is better able to participate. You and your spouse will have the time to understand the questions to be addressed, and thoughtfully approach the decision making process.
