Springtime in the Rockies and Your Relationships

“Partly Cloudy, Windy, Sun Mixed with Occasional Snow Showers”: Springtime in the Rockies & Your Relationships



We had snow the first weekend in April, driving, blinding, Colorado blizzard-type snow. The interstate north of us was closed, and cars were off the roads all over the place. I drive out to a local dairy on Saturdays to pick up our weekly dairy order, and could hardly see the road in some places; the wind was blowing snow so badly.



Two days later, it was warm,… Continue

Underwater Stock Options, A Problematic Marital Asset

In today’s economy a new issue has arisen regarding stock options that once upon a time had value as a marital asset. With the economic downturn, a majority of stock options are now underwater. Approximately, two thirds of public companies report their stock options underwater. How should we treat this asset in a divorce settlement?

What's Your Co-Parenting Style? Cooperative, Parallel or Somewhere In-Between?

One of many difficult things parents must do during and after their divorce is deal with their child(ren)'s other parent. While some aspects of "the deal" are spelled out in documents such as temporary or permanent court orders or final marital settlement agreements, most of the "parenting" details are not explicitly written down.

My Peaceful Divorce

Many people have asked me why I turned from being a successful, aggressive divorce attorney to a mediator. It is a question that I have been asked over and over again for a dozen years now. I admit that I never really delved deeply into the question, just answered it with some general statements like, “It was no longer in line with my truth,” or “My spiritual growth would no longer allow me to ignore the damage I was doing to families,” or some such.



Now, to a large extent, these… Continue

How Important Is the Budget in Divorce Planning?

I think everyone’s least favorite word is BUDGET. Why don’t we want to hear that word? Think about it: We’re asking ourselves to do something we don’t want to do — or worse yet, someone else is asking us to do it. While we might not like them, having a budget does help. In divorce planning — whether you are going to litigation,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation.
