Lizabeth Croland Sarakin

Divorce can be frightening, confusing, overwhelming and much more.
Whether you are thinking about, in the process or are already divorced, I can help you.

With 30 years specializing in divorce and family law I am uniquely qualified and have a wealth of knowledge, experience and insight with which I help my clients gain greater peace of mind and clarity and navigate through, out and beyond divorce, parenting and family related issues.

I offer on-line & in person Mediation services for individuals looking to resolve divorce, parenting and family related issues in a private, less stressful, less financially & emotionally costly and less time consuming way. I listen thoughtfully & objectively to individuals and work with them as a neutral third party to improve communication and facilitate productive discussions, to identify issues & address concerns. With sensitivity & patience, I assist individuals to actively and cooperatively participate in the mediation process, to work through and beyond their differences, to focus on the future and together, to decide (rather than leaving the decision to a Judge after costly litigation) how to settle their issues in a way which is fair, reasonable and acceptable to both of them.

If you or someone you know could benefit from my help, please feel free to contact me.
