I begin the process by scheduling a one hour consultation with you so that I can better understand your particular circumstances.  I can also answer your questions in depth so that you can make an informed decision about your possible options.  If you are looking to have me as your mediator, I won’t discuss your individual situation so as not to compromise my neutrality, but I am happy to answer your process questions and I can also set up a consultation with both you and your spouse to explain the procedure and make sure you are both comfortable in moving forward with me as your mediator.  The dissolution of your marriage and the well-being of your children are very personal matters, so when you hire an attorney or select a mediator, it is important to have a good fit. The first consultation is a good way to establish whether I’m right for you.
