MY EX’S SIGNIFICANT OTHER/SPOUSE INTERFERES WITH PARENTING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

More often than not, after you’ve gone through a divorce, you or our spouse, or both, will find new partners.

With us, you can find solace knowing that, no matter how the parenting dynamic changes once a new partner is included in the mix, your parenting plan doesn’t have to change.

MY EX IS MOVING, NOW WHAT?

When an ex-wife or ex-husband moves to a new home, it can be challenging to maintain whatever balance you had between you, your ex, and your child.

How Does Divorce Mediation Work?

Divorce mediation has become a frequently used process for settling the difficult terms of a divorce.
