Online Divorce and Custody Mediation

Online Divorce Mediation

            A Better Alternative Exists

You have the ability to resolve your divorce, custody or other family issues:

  • Without using your savings or credit card to pay a huge retainer fee;

  • Without delays and waiting for attorneys' calendars and the court docket;

  • Without spending your children's college education on lawyers and experts;​

  • Without  the stress of confronting your spouse, the opposing attorney or a Judge;


With Online Divorce Mediation, your case is resolved on your schedule, at times convenient for you, from home or the office, while paying a reasonable hourly rate.


Creative solutions are devised specifically for your particular situation. There is no cookie-cutter, one solution fits all resolution. Clients are happier with the results because they take an active part in formulating just the right solution to their issues.


You don't have to talk to the other side, or to lawyers or judges to resolve your divorce or custody issues.  Your Mediator is your guide and communicator.



For over 30 years, as a Family Law Specialist, I litigated and mediated, thousands of divorce and child custody cases. I know what is necessary and appropriate for a successful resolution of even the most contested cases.

I now limit my practice to online Divorce and Family Law Mediation and Coaching.  I have found this to be the most effective and cost-efficient manner of assisting people through the divorce process.

My Mediation process is different from the mainstream.  I conduct my mediation sessions separately with each spouse.


Parties are able to express themselves freely and can focus on real solutions.  We work through what is most important to each party and what compromises can be made without devastating results. The typical pressure and stress of working with the other side are alleviated with this process


Our resolutions are always more acceptable because the parties actively participate in the final outcome.

 I offer a Free 15-minute Consultation to introduce you to me and my systems of Mediation and Coaching.


Any questions you may have about the process itself or how to get started will be answered.


If you need help bringing the other side to Mediation, alternatives will be discussed and implemented.


This is an Introductory Meeting. The facts of your particular situation or action will not be discussed during the Consultation so that the process is not compromised.
