Since 1998, Regina has helped families in transition address their legal issues related to custody, child support, alimony, and property division either through negotiated settlements or litigation. As of 2006, she has been offering alternate dispute resolution services including weekend mediation and Collaborative Divorce.
An initial consult is the first step towards learning what a prenuptial agreement or separation and/or divorce case may look like for an individual.
In the first meeting, which is completely confidential, the client will learn about his/her rights and obligations arising from a marriage or having a child with another person. The standard issues I help people address are (1) property and debt division, (2) alimony, (3) child support and (4) child custody. In the consult, I review the various options for finalizing a prenuptial agreement or obtaining a separation/divorce. Ultimately, each client must chose his/her own path, and I then assist them with whatever option best suits that client’s goals.
The first step to securing an appointment is to email a request for the intake form. Telephone consults can be arranged Monday through Friday during normal business hours with advance online payment. The minimum consult time is 30 minutes, scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
