What Isn’t Mediation?

Mediation is not court, it is not expensive, it doesn’t involve a judge, it doesn’t make you do stuff you don’t want to do, it doesn’t make decisions for you, it doesn’t force you to settle on terms you do not want, it doesn’t make you meet with your spouse, it doesn’t force money in or … Continue reading What Isn’t Mediation?

Can I Try My Own Case?

Can You Know What You Don’t Know?

I guess that sounds like a dumb question. But think about it. You might argue that there is no way you can know what you don’t know. If you don’t know you don’t know it, how can you know it? Well, this exercise could go on for awhile but the point is, I think, you … Continue reading Can You Know What You Don’t Know?

Just A Great Big Pie

What does a pie have to do with a divorce? I like to say that we are just dividing the pie equally and the negotiation is trying to get the pieces of the pie that you want. Maybe you want exactly the entire left half or the right half. Or maybe you spotted more apples … Continue reading Just A Great Big Pie
