✅ Create a plan for your process, from start to finish.

✅ Find the right resources to address the emotional, financial, parenting, legal, and communication challenges you will face.

✅ Complete your transition fully informed and focused on family and the future.

You get:

  • A direct voice in the outcome;
  • Confidential discussions;
  • A voice for your children;
  • A parenting plan created by you with the assistance of a neutral child specialist;
  • Privacy;
  • Legal Information;
  • Financial Information;
  • An opportunity to minimize tax consequences and maximize tax benefits;
  • Access to therapists, financial professionals, as well as legal professionals;
  • A complete resolution.
