I recently co-authored an article on divorce mediation with companion and farm animals along with Debra Vey Voda-Hamilton that was published in the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation‘s quarterly publication. You can find the history of The Report online here. I posted the article on my JD Supra page.
I am a trained divorce mediator and am available for divorce mediation in person or via Skype. I may travel to you for divorce mediation upon request. Divorce mediation includes a series of divorce mediation sessions– typically 2 to 5 mediation sessions– lasting around 2 hours. I charge my typical hourly rate for divorce mediation, which is oftentimes divided between the parties 50-50. Even if you have already entered the court litigation process for your divorce, you can still attempt mediation. If you are you going through a divorce (whether it involves animals or not), I highly suggest looking into mediation as a way to avoid expensive litigation.
Litigation hurts families – if you have children, I strongly encourage you to consider mediation. “You can love your kids or hate your spouse but you can’t do both.” – Natalie Greg
