DIVORCE: With or Without Lawyers!


DIVORCE: With or Without Lawyers!

I have been educating clients and the public for many years on how divorce doesn’t always have to be down and dirty. Divorce can be handled in a variety of ways. I can help you explore your options. You can litigate, negotiate or mediate!

Most divorce attorneys won’t tell you this. They will say, “Go to court, spend money and fight!” Sometimes going to court and fighting is the only solution. I too say, “when all else fails, fight!” I always fight for my client’s rights regardless of which path they choose, but not before evaluating the couple’s psychological dynamics and the law; not before trying to help them establish a productive means of communication and formulating strategy; not before telling them what to expect if they do go to court, helping them and their children create some type of normalcy through a very difficult life experience, and not before showing them how to keep their money in their pockets. My successful divorce process is a people-based alternative! It embraces your relationship dynamics, your personality traits, your situation, and includes psychology, emotions, thoughts, behavior and the law. It is not a one-size-fits-all divorce!

My medical background with training in psychology/psychiatry and my legal skills have given me the special tools to evaluate the dynamics of a marriage, both legally and psychologically; and based upon those findings, I direct couples towards the best solution for them. Even when couples are fighting and think they can’t talk to each other; it is possible to create the opportunity for each of them to be heard and supported both legally and psychologically. During this process a couple will explore all the options, be better informed, and know that they have choices.

Divorce under the best of circumstances is never easy. But the path you choose can be less painful, less expensive, and faster so you can both move on with your lives.

Remember, if you are thinking about divorcing, it doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Don’t overlook your options. Don’t let attorneys tell you there are none!
