Making your best choices in divorce, those that are aligned with who you are and what you value, requires more than just hiring an attorney or mediator and having a general understanding of laws and procedures.
Your best choices are made in divorce when you:
- Know who you are and what you value
- Clarify your goals and intentions
- Understand the issues you are or may be facing
- Explore the options available
- Identify creative solutions
- Develop a Strategy for your divorce
What is a divorce strategy? An ordinary divorce strategy is one that takes into consideration, family laws and procedures but little else to resolve the issues in a case.
An extraordinary divorce strategy goes beyond the norms and takes into consideration, not only laws and procedures, but your spouse’s personality types, quirks, wants, desires, opinions, strengths, weaknesses, and limitations; your core values; practical market conditions (e.g. real estate, stock markets, employment); judges’ recent rulings; taxes, and other influences that affect the outcome of your divorce.
Most people think Katie Holmes and Tom Cruises’s divorce was one of the fastest divorces around, but I am certain, an incredible amount of planning and an extraordinary divorce strategy was developed by Katie’s New York and California attorneys before she ever mentioned the word divorce in Tom’s presence. And it was Katie’s divorce strategy that enabled her to quickly and quietly secure her ideal child custody arrangement. (More about this later.)
Now you may be thinking that divorce strategies are only for celebrities and the uber wealthy, but this isn’t true. Almost every divorce, especially those that are complex or promise to be hostile, can benefit from a well thought out strategy.
Wouldn’t you like your divorce to be as quick and seemingly effortless as Katie Holmes’ divorce? If you would, lets see what we can do together in a divorce strategy session.
In you divorce strategy sessions we will roll up our sleeves and work together to develop your extraordinary divorce strategy. Using exercises, worksheets, and one-on-one sessions we will tackle your specific divorce issues, brainstorm options, identify creative solutions for all of your divorce problems, and develop a strategy that you can implement immediately.
In your divorce strategy sessions you will have direct access to my twenty years of divorce experience gained as an attorney, mediator, and strategist as well as my real estate, business, and other legal experience.
A divorce strategy session is perfect for you if you are initiating or in the midst of divorce, legal separation or the dissolution of a domestic partnership; working with a lawyer or mediator; representing yourself; using mediation, collaboration or litigation and committed to making your best choices in divorce.
The time required to develop a divorce strategy depends upon the complexity of your situation and any pending deadlines so you may find a single Divorce Strategy session works perfectly or several strategy sessions are needed to move through your divorce.
