Mary T.JohnstonINTRODUCTION/GENERAL COMMENTS/PERSONALS GOALS FOR INVOLVEMENT IN COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW CASES:

Most couples enter marriage with the belief it will be forever after. Unfortunately life circumstances happen and a couple can find themselves facing a divorce. After many years counseling couples, adolescents, and children both pre- and post-divorce, I am convinced that the Collaborative Process is the by far the best means for dealing with the legal and emotional issues involved in a divorce. I am honored to be part of a professional team that works collectively together to help a couple reach mutually agreeable decisions regarding division of assets, the development of parenting plans, and any other issues as pertaining to the divorce. As the team’s family coach and communication neutral, my role is to identify, manage, and resolve obstacles to the process such as stressors, communication issues, and parenting plan differences. By doing this, my goal is to help make the process more efficient, leading to an agreement, and enabling you to move forward in the journey of life.
