When Jim began working in the divorce financial planning arena, he helped couples work out issues related to property settlements, maintenance and child support. His focus on the interests of children led to helping couples resolve issues using a mediation model. Jim has employed this model with clients since 2007. In 2011, he completed the requirements necessary for approval as a mediator by the Indiana Supreme Court. Jim is skilled and comfortable mediating issues for clients who are represented by attorneys. Primarily Jim uses mediation to assist couples who have decided to complete their divorces without attorneys.
