Starting Over: What Do You Really Need?

Assessing Your Options: Divorce Mediation Could A Third-Party Negotiator Make Your Divorce Easier?

Even still, the act of meeting with a divorce attorney can feel overwhelming. For many, that meeting symbolizes the end of the relationship — or the demise of an ideal.
