Description of Practice

Tired of being overwhelmed about getting a Divorce? Are you worried about:

- How much it's going to cost to finish your case?
- How much time you'll have to take off work to meet with attorneys?
- All the confusing court processes and forms?
- Is there a way we can do this where we don't have to be in the same room together?
- How much time you're going to have your kids when the process is all over?
- Whether you can afford to pay child/spousal support or whether you can afford to live on what you're going to receive?

It doesn't have to be this stressful. The Virtual Divorce System can help you through the process.

Imagine a divorce where:
- You feel in control, not overwhelmed
- You don't have to take time off work
- You can go through the process from the comfort of your home or...anywhere
- You never have to worry about filling out legal forms
- You feel free to come up with agreements that work for your family because you understand how they are going to affect your (and your children's) lives.

I'm an experienced California Family Law Attorney-Mediator who is devoted to reducing the stress of a divorce or separation.

I'll answer your questions, fill out your legal forms and, most important, work with you and your spouse or partner together ONLINE to craft an agreement that works for your unique family, all from the comfort of your own home and during convenient EVENING and WEEKEND hours.

I will also keep your costs transparent so you don't experience runaway attorney fees.

My approach is gentle and educational. I understand you need to go at your own pace and will help you where you are, without judgment.


No large up front deposit.

Affordable package prices vary depending on case complexity. I will recommend a package based on your circumstances (children/no children, how much you own and owe, level of conflict). The one thing I can't control for is how long you may disagree. You can purchase additional mediation time beyond the Package price and all costs will be transparent.

Other Information

Convenient evening and weekend hours always available and all mediations are by phone or videoconference - no travel time, no time off work necessary.

If you agree, you won't have to go to Court.
