An expert family and divorce mediator, a PhD candidate in the area of Conflict Management within the Family, mediation trainer and keynote speaker. A member of the Family and Divorce Mediation Council of Greater New York, of the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators, and of the Connecticut Council for Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Practice. Michelle’s goal oriented yet empathetic mediation style and her extensive knowledge in the field of mediation and conflict resolution has allowed for many couples to end their relationship and resolve their disputes in the most peaceful, amicable, respectable and affordable way. How Can I help you? As a mediator and conflict resolution expert, I provide a pleasant and affordable alternative to costly court battles. This will save your sanity and resources, and protect your kids, if you have any. I will work with you and your spouse to design an agreement that you can both work with in the future. This will be an agreement that will guide your family into the future and will allow everyone involved to move on to a new stage in your lives. Typically, this agreement will cover your finances and, if you have children, your parenting plan and child support. I do not use legal, complicated language. This will be written clearly and collaboratively. After we prepare the agreement we can also fill in the forms that you will need to present to the court. If you wish, you may then choose to have an attorney and / or an accountant review these documents. Ultimately, the agreement and forms will be filed with the Clerk of the Court and your case will be set for a final hearing as an uncontested and agreed up on dissolution of marriage. You may also choose to further meet with me in order to work on the parenting coordination aspect of your separation. I offer parenting coordination sessions for currently divorcing or already divorced couples.What is divorce mediation?Family and divorce mediation can be achieved without attorneys.
