Divorce is 80% an emotional experience and 20% a legal process.
We help couples negotiate their divorce or separation to meet their specific needs. Don’t put your family’s emotional health in the hands of litigation lawyers and judges.
Recently I had lunch with a matrimonial judge whom I admire very much. We were talking about difficult parenting discussions I have had with clients and she stopped me with this story:
“Do you know what I ask every couple who comes into my court? First, I ask them what they are doing in my courtroom. They explain they are there to settle a custody issue. I then ask them, ‘Do you love your children?’ They inevitably declare that they do and to that I answer, ‘Well, then what are you doing here? Because, I don’t love your children. I don’t even know your children and you are putting your children’s lives into the hands of a total stranger who doesn’t love them.” (To learn more – go to the blog article, ‘I Don’t Love Your Children.’)
