From my many years of experience as a family law attorney, I can assuredly say that one of the most challenging, stressful decisions for those contemplating divorce is finding a lawyer they feel good about and who they can trust to optimally guide them in navigating this major life transition. And for good reason! This decision will have a lasting impact on the trajectory of the case, the costs, and the ultimate outcomes.  

A myriad of personal and emotional challenges come with facing divorce, especially for those who have children. For many people, the legal world is foreign and feels like an additional daunting, intimidating hurdle, and here I’ll help demystify the attorney search process by...

Co-parenting with an ex-spouse can be tremendously challenging, even under the best of circumstances.  I have been doing it myself now for about six years, and as a family law attorney and mediator, I’ve seen a full spectrum of co-parenting relationships from genuinely amicable and supportive, to destructive and even toxic.  Most tend to fall somewhere in the middle, as does mine, but it has been at times a trial by fire type of situation. What I have come to appreciate, though, first by going through my own divorce with limited professional help or the benefit of a family law background, then by helping to guide couples as they go through divorce as a family law attorney and mediator, is the value...

In many families, at least one spouse owns an interest in a business. One of the most challenging issues when it comes time to divorce is how to handle that business.

And one of the most common misconceptions of divorcing business owners is that the court won't stick its nose into your business.

While every case is unique, here are a few general things to consider if you are facing a divorce and at least one spouse owns piece of a business.

  • In most circumstances, if the business was started or acquired during the marriage, the business is marital property.  In Colorado, marital property is divisible between spouses at the time of divorce. Typically, the spouse holding the business interest will be...

As a business owner today, you are constantly adapting to change, while also looking to boost productivity and minimize risk and expenses.  Divorce may be a huge hidden drain on your  bottom line that few are talking about.  And yet it’s true that 30-50% of your married employees are destined to go through a divorce.  

And divorce can have a big impact on workforce productivity.

As business owners we care about our employees. We offer paid time off, health benefits, retirement support and in-house amenities to support their happiness and productivity. But when it comes to employees going through divorce, support can often be lacking. Divorces can be messy, complicated, and toxic,...

The following is excerpted from the book The Collaborative Divorce Advantage, now available on Amazon.

Reaching a divorce settlement does not necessarily reduce the harmful consequences of divorce. The important thing is reaching an agreement in a healthy way that stands up long-term and avoids ongoing conflict. Conscious Divorce Mediation professionals support this goal by (A) identifying specific values that the parties commit to upholding; (B) helping the parties with holistic preparation for the mediation process; (C) skill building; and (D) offering or directing the parties to post-divorce support.

Committing to Values
