The alternative to mediation is an adversarial, attorney-led process, which is often one of the strangest experiences that couples and families enter.

With over 20 years as a professional mediator, I am the only Advanced Practitioner in Family and Divorce Mediation (ACR) in New Mexico and have walked hundreds of couples through the separation and/or divorce process. I hope you will schedule a free consultation to find out if mediation will work for you.
