    Answered . You're smart to keep this friendly. Are you registered domestic partners? If you are, you can file a petition for dissolution. There are several excellent lawyers on Avvo. Hire one to advise you as to how to proceed.

    Answered . How you do this is you hire a lawyer MEDIATOR --or collaborative lawyers.. Frankly I'd use Divorcenet NOT Avvo. You may also need a Certified Divorce Financial analyst. See link below.
