Divorce Mediation

Another method to resolve dissolution of marriage issues is by the use of a mediator. While working as a mediator I do my best to provide a safe environment in which each party has the opportunity to express their position, needs, opinions and desires. If you are represented by an attorney, s/he may participate in the mediation.

As a mediator, I am a neutral third party who can and will identify potential legal, financial and tax issues. However, even though I am an attorney, when functioning as a mediator I cannot offer legal advice to either party. As your mediator, I would use my legal knowledge to identify legal and financial issues and encourage both parties to obtain advice from another source so that decisions can be made from an informed position.

The outcome of the mediation is up to the participating parties. A mediator makes no decisions on the issues, but supports both parties to make decisions for themselves. I can assist you in:

Clarifying issues

Identifying  your needs and interests and those of your children

Helping to create options that best meet your needs and interests



Divorce mediation’s are typically done in a series of 2-2.5 hour meetings with ‘homework’ such as obtaining documents and/or seeking advice from another expert, such as a divorce financial specialist or accountant between meetings.

In the event you cannot be in the same room as your spouse, because of a restraining order or another reason, I have separate rooms available for each of you. I have conducted mediation’s at the courthouse, thus offering a greater degree of safety.

As is Collaborative divorce, mediation is a good option when you want to work cooperatively and maintain a workable relationship with your spouse regarding future parenting.

I established the Collaborative Divorce and Mediation Center to help family law clients achieve their legal goals without the need for courtroom litigation.  I have been providing mediation services to divorcing families in Boulder County since 1996 and would be pleased to discuss this option with you.
