They say "divorced." We say "uncoupled."
It's all about choices
The Uncoupled Life?
Divorce shouldn’t be a battle to the death because there is no winner in a divorce. Instead, we want to help couples find a more amicable way to transition into the next phase of their relationship. It isn’t always possible, but if both parties can approach the divorce as adults, setting aside the tumultuous emotions and treating the property division like a business transaction, the entire process is less stressful and much less expensive.
Why mediate ?
In addition to typically being faster, less stressful, and less expensive than traditional litigation, in Harris County and many of the surrounding counties, most family court judges require everyone to go to mediation before actually going to court. Since mediation is less expensive than court, and has a very high likelihood of success, we think it makes sense to start with mediation, and hope that you will seriously consider this option. If it doesn’t work, you can always hire lawyers.
The Uncoupled Life?
We use a conference-style mediation process in which everyone is in the same room, having a conversation and brainstorming options and solutions. Although we each have years of experience in our fields, as your mediators, we are impartial. We provide information only. We will not “choose sides,” and will work with you both to develop options that work for everyone.
