"The Changing Role of the Financial Specialist in Divorce Mediation"


Speakers: Donna Petrucelli, Ken Neumann & Monica Roquitte

Financial specialists have been part of the divorce process for a while. However, they weren't "officially included" until the development of Collaborative Divorce. The development of Team Mediation gives financial specialists a permanent seat at the table.

In this presentation, you will learn:

  • What you need to know about the Divorce Process
  • How to best position yourself in the Divorce Mediation Process
  • How to become part of a Team Mediation network
  • What are the ethical issues and concerns that arise from this process?
