We hired Wendy Prince to carry out a very simple mediated divorce to a mutually agreed separation. My wife and I had in fact created almost all of our arrangements ourselves, but felt it wise to hire a professional to carry us through the finer points. To be clear, we had an agreement in place - and then we hired Wendy Prince. We met with Prince several times and each time was like a completely different meeting. The approach to the divorce was made as confusing as it could be. There was virtually no continuity from one meeting to the next. It was clear after our second meeting commenced that Prince had forgotten everything and she said or we, her clients, said in the first meeting and she stated several times, "Oh I forgot about that..." Notes are required in the legal profession.
My wife and I approached our divorce logically, with virtually no hostility, however, after beginning mediation, Wendy created hostility as my wife looked to her for guidance and my wife followed her lead because of this normally expected professional guidance. Wendy could see that the divorce was a simple one, but created hostility to churn us, her clients. The points of contention that were created that were not points of contention at all. Prince craftily created issues where issues did not exist. That was cleared up by our second mediator who was amazed at the ineptitude of the concepts Prince put on the table for us to discuss.
The divorce process is in fact simple for the majority - roughly 50/50 and place credit and property where it is due. That's all you need to remember.
Wendy Prince is an expert at churning her clients. I am amazed at how badly she behaved.
Our second mediator did a fantastic job of creating an agreement and unfortunately, by his estimates, spent at least half of his time correcting all the misconceptions that Wendy Prince created.
As they say counselor - see you in court.
Mediation helped us save money during the divorce process. Wendy helped us stay calm in a difficult situation and I always felt she was fair. The key is, once you have a negotiated agreement, take it to your own, second lawyer, just to review. This is something Wendy recommended.
