Mediation and Collaborative Practice are particularly helpful for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) families—with or without children—going through dissolution because Mediation and Collaborative Practice:

  • can be structured to serve your family’s real needs, giving you control over where to spend your resources and energy
  • can help you create solutions that work for your family
  • are not “one size fits all” processes, but can be tailored to each couple’s expectations and needs rather than relying on an area of the law that is confusing and unsettled with regard to LGBTQ issues
  • can take into consideration tax and other consequences that are unique to LGBTQ families
