Dealing with Divorce

It doesn't matter which partner initiates the divorce procedure, it is still important for you to bring your marriage to an equitable closure, with the help of your attorney or mediator.

Shapiro works with you to develop a strategy or plan, which allows you to come out of your divorce feeling stronger, and ready to move on with your life.

Ending a marriage facilitates a number of major adjustments, and previous partners can find themselves suffering with overwhelming confusion and conflict.

Because of this, some people choose to approach their divorce using professional mediation. Though this course of action is not always right for every couple, Darren Shapiro is a trained mediator.

He understands that although divorce can be a stressful concept for any couple, the process becomes much more complicated when children are also involved.
