A consultation is an information session. I will answer any questions which you may have about any of the services I provide and my fees.
If you have questions about Mediation, you and your partner may attend a joint consultation. Otherwise, if you are not interested in pursuing Mediation, consultations are conducted on an individual basis, with only one of you.
At the intake session for Mediation, I will conduct a mandatory screening to determine if your case is appropriate for Mediation. If your case proceeds, then a formal retainer arrangement is made at the first joint session.
At the intake session for Negotiations or Collaborative Family Law, I will obtain the necessary information from you about your situation. If your case proceeds, then a formal retainer arrangement is made at the conclusion of that first appointment.
