Wise Choices
When Your Family’s Safety Is At Risk

If your family disputes involve domestic violence, substance or alcohol abuse you may need to seek an order of protection as soon as possible to safeguard your family. Many men and women live in fear far too long. The tipping point to leave a relationship does not have to be when the police are finally called in for intervention. I can help you develop a safety plan to protect yourself and your children.

Certified Mediator
In Matters Of Family Law

Sometimes, resolving family law disputes must be handled inside the courtroom. In these cases, the proceedings can be a lengthy and stressful process. As an alternative to litigation, mediation can reduce the amount of stress and time it takes to resolve your disputes. You may enter into mediation voluntarily or it may be court-ordered for creating settlement agreements relating to divorce, allocation of parental responsibilities, parenting time agreements, visitation with nonparents, legal separation and more. As a certified meditator, I will help you reach a long-lasting agreement with the other party.
