Child Support from the early years through the college years, Spousal Support, Health Insurance and other specific issues relating to your individual family situation.
divorce and art negotiations
The art business and/or owning an art collection requires expertise. As an art collector and formerly an art dealer, I have extensive experience and comprehension of all the nuances and challenges when valuing and making decisions regarding art works, especially when it comes to divorce.
During the divorce process, you will both decide whether to share, keep or sell your art collection. If you are an art dealer and own your own business, an analysis will have to be made to determine your spouse’s interest in the business.
In either situation, you may need to have appraisals done and sometimes determine what those appraisals really mean when it comes to selling a work of art. Art markets are, as you may know, unlike any other type of business.
In the mediation room, I can help you brainstorm so you can make decisions that feel fair to each of you in regards to your art collection/business.
If you are encountering any difficulties parenting and communicating with the other parent of your children whether during a marriage, in view of your divorce or post divorce, mediation will help you talk about the problems at stake.

It is difficult for two people in love and ready to say “I do” to think that anything may come in the way of their love.
At times, people decide to have post nups drawn up once they are married which will cover decisions made by the parties regarding their present or future financial situation as well as any decisions they would want to see in writing on issues that are important to them.
elder care disputes/estate disputes
Many disagreements may arise while family members are caretakers for aging parents.
In some cases, adult children are brought in by parents prior to their death to discuss sharing their belongings. This well intended proposal can create some differences that may be worked out as well in mediation.
There are times, particularly when children approach the teen age years where there is tension between parents and children.
Some parents may encounter difficulties working with one another in sharing times with the children even after their divorce.
Other disputes may arise on the money available and shared for child support and other expenses regarding the children. Here again we can look at the whole picture together and try and understand what is causing the problem and how you can both work this out to make it easier for you and your children.
short-term or long-term agreements
Members of a family, couples, couples going through a divorce, siblings, parents, families may encounter at times in their lives situations which need clarification and planning and a written short term or long term agreement.
