Divorce & Separation

Couple Fighting

Divorce and separation are one of the most emotionally difficult and often painful times in adults and children’s lives. Not only are the parties asked to find their way through the break-down of their personal relationship with their spouse, but at the same time they must find the financial resources to continue the family and look after everyone’s well-being while they are apart in two separate households.


Mother and DaughterWhether or not financial resources are scarce or economic circumstances are such that the family will suffer a large loss of equity, it is imperative for the parties to work together to seek the best resolution for themselves and all members of the family, despite any bitter or acrimonious feelings which have arisen during the break-up. It is essential to find professionals such as Ms. Holley and Mr. Blackman who will listen to your situation and help you find the path best suited for all involved.


I had a very good opinion of the attorney, Ms. Holley, who acted as Mediator in my divorce from my ex wife. Ms. Holley explained the process of divorce through mediation, what rights each of us had; and gave us information about the community property laws of California. She was very thorough even though our divorce was very emotional and difficult. Throughout the process I found Ms. Holley to be knowledgeable, competent, understanding and fair to each of us.
