  • Mediation: Divorce is an overwhelming process, and often litigation only adds to the emotional toll of the family. For many divorcing couples, mediation is a better option, as it helps reduce the cost and stress of a divorce. Katherine acts as a mediator for couples who are separating or divorcing or having post-separation or post-divorce disputes. Katherine also works as a mediator with many couples considering prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements. To find out if divorce mediation or other forms of mediation are the right choice for you, contact Katherine today.
  • Collaborative Law/Practice: When going through a divorce, many couples seek a non-adversarial process to settle their marital issues. Collaborative Practice (also known as Collaborative Law) encourages separating or divorcing couples to communicate and cooperate with each other and work toward a resolution that is best for the entire family. Collaborative Practice also is an ideal process for helping couples negotiate prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements. Katherine guides clients through the collaborative practice process.
