Perhaps you have made the decision that you are wanting to separate, or maybe you haven’t completely decided yet. Perhaps your spouse has left or made the decision that they don’t want to be a part of the marriage anymore. No matter the situation, knowing where to start can be the hardest part. There is so much contradicting information out there, some of it false some of it accurate. Who do you trust? Your friends and family are telling you one thing, the internet is saying something else.

At the SDRC we like to keep things simple. The best place to start is a consultation.

What is a consultation: This is a one-on-one meeting with one of our mediators who will sit with you alone to discuss your case. They will talk to you about what is happening, what has been happening, what your expectations are, and what you are struggling with. Once they have all of the information, they will assist you in coming up with a clear road map to move forward in the most cost effective, and least emotionally draining way possible for you and your family.

What is road map? A road map for us is clear a path and a step by step way to support you through the process. Whether your spouse wants to participate in an amicable separation or not, we can help you navigate the family law system.

What additional resources do you have? If your case is highly adversarial, we can still help! We work closely with our lawyers and team members to assist in resolving very difficult cases. During your consultation our mediators will be able to assess what resources, if any that your case requires. From there we work with you as a support through the entire process. With us you are never alone.

If you or someone you know is separating and doesn’t know what to do, leave us a message below and we will be there to help.
