My Piece of the Peaceful Divorce Puzzle

My mission is to create a network of people who share information, inspiration and knowledge about Peaceful Divorce, whether they are experiencing it directly themselves, or are committed to the vision of Peaceful Divorce in their professional lives, or both! Then we take our collective messages to the world!

As a divorce attorney for the past 25 years, with fourteen years on the divorce court battleground and the past 11 years practicing exclusively divorce mediation, I have seen firsthand the vast difference between the two processes and where it leaves its participants and families. When I realized that I could spread the message so much further and faster, I co-authored the
"Happily Divorced!" book and audio program with 27 year relationship expert, Dr. Max Vogt, and created several sites, including this one and www.PeacefulDivorceProject.org, to facilitate Peaceful Divorce wherever possible. The testimonials on that site, and on www.HappilyDivorced.org are proof that it works!

I am also working with the divorce attorneys to help them to embrace this concept of Peaceful Divorce, and there are many, many lawyers who are on board with it. We are working together to re-educate the divorce attorneys as to how peaceful divorce can be a win-win for them and their clients. They are a critical piece of the puzzle!

I am deeply honored to be sharing this network with like-minded visionaries and know that we can and will change the way that the world 's families experience divorce!

Getting Divorced? Don’t Forget about Long Term Care Insurance!

Often when people go through a divorce, their emotions are tied up. The questions on their mind are “how does this marriage end?” and “what do I get financially?” When they do think about health insurance, they usually don't consider long-term care insurance (LTCi). Why is it so important for recently divorced or currently divorcing couples to think about long term care planning? Two…See More

Elder Care Mediation

I recently attended a conference for The Academy of Professional Family Mediators in Memphis, Tennessee. One of the workshops I participated in was on elder care mediation, which gave some fascinating insights. A 2001 study, done by Debra B. Gentry, showed nearly 40% of adult children providing care for their parents reported serious conflict with siblings, usually related to a lack of sufficient help from those siblings. This study…See More

The Difference Between Litigation and Mediation: It's Personal

People have a range of preconceptions about divorce, the law, and the courts. In reality, going before a judge to air your grievances about your soon-to-be ex-spouse is rarely as satisfying as movies and television shows may have you believe. Mediation offers a private, cost-efficient alternative to litigation—but before you choose either venue, there are some guiding principles to keep in mind:Don't expect…See More
