Description of Practice

As the founder of Cheswick Divorce Solutions, Donna has been working with divorcing individuals and family law attorneys since 2008. She is unique among Pennsylvania divorce mediators in that her financial background and CDFA training allow her to provide clients with knowledgable and indepth information on the financial complexities of the divorce process. This helps them understand the financial implication of their decisions so they are able to negotiate on a level playing field. She uses divorce software to illustrate charts, graphs, and financial projections to show both spouses what their future financial situation may look like under any settlement scenario.

Professional Background

She is the author of numerous articles that have been featured in local and national print, online publications and radio.

Approach

Divorce may be one of the most emotional and traumatic events in a person’s life, but it does not have to be an overwhelming or financially destructive experience. Using mediation you and your spouse can work together to control the decisions that will affect your futures instead of having a Judge make these decisions for you. We will work together to resolve issues on child custody, property division, child/spousal support and other divorce related issues. Mediation is a private and confidential way to resolve disputes and come to an agreement that addresses a divorcing couples goals, values and needs.

Fees

Donna offers a complementary 30-minute phone consultation to discuss your case. Her hourly mediation fee is $175.
