Divorce is the death of those dreams, the death of the happy two parent family that everyone seems to have. It is especially stressful when the person who ...
    • Reducing Stress

      Stress has a negative effect on your health, and your ability to navigate your day to day life.

      Your divorce is finally over. You and your ex-spouse have a parenting plan that allows your children to have significant time with both parents, and your children have adjusted well to the schedule.

    • INTERNATIONAL CUSTODY DISPUTES

      Custody disputes, when they are in a single case, in a single jurisdiction, are complicated. At the end of a dispute, there is a judgment, which defines what parenting time will be for each parent, and who has decision making authority, which is the essence of what having “custody” means.

    • Dating While Divorcing

      A common question when a client first comes in to see me is whether they can start dating. It’s a good question.
