Divorce is never anyone’s goal. The court system pits you against your spouse as adversaries when it comes to divorce. You feel like you are on trial, and that you are helpless to control the outcome. The traditional litigated divorce can be destructive to you, your children, and your future relationship with your soon to be ex - not to mention your wallet.
We offer an alternative.
We offer a kinder, gentler process of Divorce Mediation where you and your spouse speak to each other face to face, using our unique process, in order to work out how to untangle your finances and how to create a parenting schedule that works for your new family post-divorce.
You decide your own settlement by reviewing various financial scenarios like what to do with the house, how to divide retirement assets, how to pay for daily living expenses, and share parenting time.
When your divorce is complete we provide support for the second phase of your financial process with a time-lined plan to ensure that your settlement is managed with long term financial success in mind.
Your marriage is ending but your life is not. We offer hope and a new beginning without the conflict, contention and cost of a traditional litigated divorce.
We know this is one of the most challenging times you have ever faced.

DIVORCE FINANCIAL ANALYST
Having gone through a divorce with two young children in the 1990’s and more recently a custody battle for our granddaughter, I know first hand how awful the divorce process is. It turns your world upside down and makes it hard to enjoy life’s simplest pleasures. You feel isolated, anxious and afraid.
Knowing that divorce is an emotional roller-coaster, I shepard my clients through one of their worst times offering them grace and compassion from a logical perspective. I strive to bring clarity and information to a draining process.
At Garske Mediation, we focus on the “business transaction”at hand by simplifying your settlement to numbers and spreadsheets so you can make reasonable and informed choices, while keeping your emotions at bay. Once complete, we chart a timelined path forward to support the longterm success of your settlement. We believe that education is key when deciding what’s best for you and your family for years to come.
You know better than anyone what is best...and we listen.
I'd love to spend a few minutes connecting to understand your story and see if our unique process can bring greater support and healing to this challenging time.
Working with Leslie, while not under the easiest of circumstances, was a very positive experience. We were able to meet only a couple times, worked through things very efficiently, and Leslie was very diligent to ensure everybody had a clear and accurate picture of the agreement. Leslie presented us with an engagement that was tailored to our needs, and kept costs very affordable. I would recommend her to anybody in need of such services.
