THE DIVORCE COURT IS CLOSED*. WE CAN’T GO ON LIKE THIS.

Mediate a Reconciliation Agreement. (Also called a “postnuptial” or “marital” agreement.)

A Reconciliation Agreement tries to reconcile differences while admitting the possibility of divorce. It sets out rights and obligations each would have to follow if a divorce was filed. If there is a divorce, then the Reconciliation Agreement, by law, turns into a Separation Agreement.

A divorce mediator will help each of you resolve issues like: How will support be handled? How will our property be divided?

A Reconciliation Agreement may save your marriage and avoid the whole divorce thing.

Since the courts are closed*, isn’t it worth “checking-out” Reconciliation Agreements?

Conference-Call-Mediation in the Time of COVID-19

The coronavirus pandemic affects all of us; and when it comes to the divorce process, it presents a dilemma. It is important to move forward; and yet, what about the crisis?

I am sensitive to the constraints of the virus and that is why I instituted Conference-Call-Mediation or CCM. CCM will help you and your spouse move forward to the important stage of reaching agreement on a Separation Agreement. This will put you in a good position when the Family Court re-opens. During our initial telephone consultation, we can talk more about CCM.

The phone is better than meeting.
