Compassionate.Experienced.Affordable.

Stephanie will assist both Parties to dissolve a marriage or parenting conflict in an amicable and nonaggressive way, for a fixed fee, and with no surprises. Stephanie works with dozens of couples every year to create an environment of cooperation. Divorce mediation will allow each participant an opportunity to negotiate and direct a settlement independent of the court or attorneys. Successful divorce mediation requires each participant to listen, to communicate respectfully, and to desire to accommodate one another. Mediation does not include a win-lose outcome. Rather, each participant should reach an amicable divorce settlement that is acceptable to all involved.
