About Me

           Our objective is to craft a sound
Agreement which reflects your personal goals as you proceed through your
divorce.  NHDM provides a fair and
efficient alternative to litigation.  We
will educate you on the law you need in order to make informed decisions since
informed parties make better Agreements which withstand the test of time.

Your attorney mediator at New Hope
Divorce Mediation will facilitate constructive discussion to address the issues
involved in your divorce and arrive at amicable resolutions.  The reason that the mediation process takes a
much shorter time than traditional litigation to conclude the divorce process
is because time is not wasted with lawyers filing motions, pleadings or scheduling
court appearances.  Your NHDM attorney
mediator will organize and clarify your issues and support you with the tools
you need to create solutions.  The
mediation process fosters cooperation and allows you to retain control of your future
as you proceed through this difficult time.

If you have children, there is no
greater gift you can give to them than to work together to resolve your issues
rather than to litigate your issues.  You
owe it to your children to not engage in a long and bitter struggle.  NHDM puts your children first.  Our goal is to finalize your agreements
involving your children before we mediate your financial issues.  When the divorce process is finalized, it is
essential that you are able to cooperate and work effectively with each other
in the future when the best interests of your children are involved. 

Your neutral third party mediator
will guide you through the questions of child support and visitation, equitable
distribution of assets, spousal support and the unique issues of your
circumstances.  NHDM focuses exclusively
on divorce mediation and provides you with complete service from beginning to

You will conclude the process with
New Hope Divorce Mediation with a sound, legally binding Settlement Agreement
incorporated into a final Divorce Decree that both of you can live with.  There is not one winner and one loser.  Neither judges nor lawyers will be making the
decisions for your future for you.  You are
in charge of your future.
