Collaborative Divorce is an option for couples who feel they can work out their divorce settlement themselves but still want legal protection. The Collaborative process is based on mutual respect and you control the process, not a judge. Issues are dealt with one by one and a team of professionals, such as mental health professionals and neutral financial consultants, may be brought in if needed.
Estate Planning is an area that is often overlooked by others during the divorce process. Becoming familiar with existing documents such as a will, health care proxy, power of attorney, insurance policy, and a trust you and your spouse may have, should be reviewed. And, if no documents exist at all, then now is the time to have an attorney-client discussion. Having a lawyer who has the heart of a Collaborative counselor to guide you in every step of the way is what you want.
Mediation is an informal, voluntary, confidential, and private process where a neutral third person, called a mediator, helps couples discuss and try to resolve their issues.
Collaborative Mediation is a fresh, innovative approach that is supplemented to the Collaborative divorce process especially when couples get stuck along the way and need additional help to resolve their differences.
Parenting Plan Mediation helps parents create a unique, individualized, written document that outlines how often they will divide parental responsibility and make child-related decisions. In Florida, a Parenting Plan is required before a divorce is granted.
Family Mediation encompasses family issues to include: the parenting plan, separation of assets, alimony (if applicable), child support and anything else that comes to mind.
Elder Care Mediation helps families address issues for the aging loved ones, to include caregiving, trusts, wills, health care proxies, and housing choices, just to name a few.
Choosing one of these alternative dispute resolution methods will save you time, energy, and money. The goal of mediation is to reduce the obstacles to communication between the participants and to address the needs of everyone involved.
Creating a comprehensive estate plan after divorce is the start of a fresh, new chapter in your life. A PEACE Estate Planning Session will empower you to make informed and educated decisions, so that you can keep your loved ones out of court and conflict. The educational session addresses your assets, your health, your minor child or children, and most importantly, your legacy. A good estate plan will provide for your loved ones, but also provide you with the care and comfort you deserve later in life. At a minimum, the Four Core “Must-Haves” documents in an estate plan are: Last Will and Testament, Health Care Power of Attorney, Living Will, and Financial Power of Attorney. If you are missing one of these vital estate planning documents, or you don’t have any of these documents, you should up update and/or create your estate plan NOW. Don’t wait any longer, plan your future today.
In its broadest sense, Elder Law is a specialized area of legal practice, covering estate planning, wills, trusts, arrangements for care, social security and retirement benefits, and protection against elder abuse and exploitation.

Your elder care years, which come after retirement, is what truly matters. A PEACE Estate Planning Session will help you to make those important, difficult decisions so that your family knows what your wants, needs, and desires are when facing your mortality or incapacity. Give the gift of planning and peace of mind to yourself and to your family. You and your family will be so happy you did. Don’t wait any longer, plan for your future today.
