Divorce and Family
All couples have unique situations. However, there are still a unique set of challenges in resolving problems in gay and lesbian marriages. Same sex couples have issues not faced by traditional relationships. We know how to handle the obstacles that may occur during the course of same sex legal separations, termination of domestic partnerships and divorces.
Tracy Jones Mediation can assist with your families problems involving child & pet custody, child & spousal support, financial entanglements, property disputes, and taxes without prejudice or question.
The issues faced by military couples considering divorce are unique due to the circumstances surrounding the relationship – including lengthy absences; difficult and incomplete long-distance communications; the stress of potential death or injury to the spouse in service of their country.

Mediation can be a way to avoid the additional stress and expense for military families who have reached the end of their marriage.
