As a divorce attorney & psychologically-trained mediator I am juggling
tons of emails and phone calls from clients divorcing and spouses thinking
of divorcing during the coronavirus pandemic.
These couples’ issues began way before the coronavirus and the complications
of marriage and divorce are not slowing down because of it.
There are some truly complex family law issues arising at this challenging
time where the strength of mediation can really help! As a mediator I
can facilitate discussions, encourage decision-making, and champion both
parties to be civil and productive about the following:
With schools enforcing quarantines, and children schooling from home, parenting
plans are being disrupted. Who will take care of children? What will visitation
look like? Where will it occur? How will the transition for visitation
take place? Should a parent be allowed to take the children on a bus,
train or plane? Which parent will decide? Mediation can help you make
life-saving decisions and answer all these questions.
Child and Spousal Support:
With companies enforcing quarantines some people will be paid while they
work at home, others will not. These imposed work decisions are starting
to affect family’s incomes . As a result child and spousal support
may need to be adjusted. Productive discussions using mediation can help
divorcing couples arrive at fair and reasonable child and spousal support
If you own a business or work in industries suffering right now like restaurants,
bars, travel, movie theatres, hair salons, airlines, transportation, and
so on, division of property will be challenging. Bankruptcy may strike
many of these businesses. In addition, stocks have been hit hard and assets
and investment portfolios are plummeting. Again mediation can help rationally
address these issues in the context of divorce.
Even with all the anxiety and uncertainty of everything going on around
us, everyday life is going on and so must we.
With my help, as a mediator, I can help you start a dialogue or continue
having a dialogue with your spouse about your divorce.
Mediation is more popular, and more convenient, now more than ever since
its less expensive, can be done quickly and since the courts are closed,
you can get a divorce without an attorney or going to court.
So some of you are thinking, “ What is mediation, and how does it
My unique psychologically-infused divorce mediation method address not
just the legal, practical aspects of divorce, but the complexities of
the emotional aspects of divorce as well.
Divorce mediation is for married couples wanting a divorce, and domestic
partners who want to separate. Divorce mediation puts you in control of
your divorce, not the courts (which are closed right now). I can help
you make legally productive decisions for your future and that of your family.
All of this will take place in an atmosphere of compassion, respect, and
cooperation, and virtually for safety purposes. I will develop an agreement
that will be tailored to all your families' needs as it relates to
finances, child support, spousal support, property division, child custody
