Negotiating a Healthy Future

Sign up here for our free support call on Thursday, April 14th.

Divorce affects the design of a family. How do you negotiate now to avoid complications and ease tensions down the road, especially when it comes to a new step or blended family?  In this call you'll:

  • Peak into the future to see what life after divorce looks like for many people
  • Better understand the difference between "blended" and "step" family

    Consider how the financial terms you create NOW play out LATER - especially when someone re-marries.

  • Tips to create a mindfully-constructed agreement and parenting plan. 


Sign up here and get the support you need. This call will be recorded, so you can register and listen any time.
