..........by way of Divorce Mediation with Norma Salazar-Cortez, M.A., Licensed Mental Health Professional, who specializes in joint consultation of non-adversarial marriage dissolution cases for impartial negotiation and resolution.


..........without or with minimal conflict and a focus on solution. Control is placed in the hands of divorcing spouses, who design their own divorce decree by having significant input in each settlement issue.  By fostering positive and efficient resolutions during divorce, the result is a fair, mutually satisfactory, and reasonable comprehensive agreement about financial assets, debt, alimony, child support, and co-parenting.  The result will be a far less emotionally and financially painful divorce process.

and confidential, as opposed to being in a court room (reduces trauma)

I divorced once, have been married to my second husband since 1996, and have four children.  Thus, I can empathize with issues surrounding divorce. Although I support the marriage institution, I also understand that remaining married sometimes no longer is an option. The reason I expanded my practice to include divorce mediation is to assist and support couples who have decided to dissolve their marriage through the transition from being married to no longer being married.  


If you give me the opportunity to help you through this difficult time, given my educational background and work experience. I can bring both you and your partner a sense of peace and understanding throughout the divorce process.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce Mediation is an alternative to divorce litigation. Divorce litigation means fighting through lawyers and judges about who gets what and who pays what.


Divorce Mediation is when clients talk civilly, through a process of negotiation, with the assistance of someone skilled in working out such agreements, to figure out how they can reach a settlement of their marital affairs that is fair and equitable for each side.


Divorce Mediation is an uncontested divorce in which agreements will be reached, decisions made, information disclosed, and issues are explored one at a time until all issues are completed, fair and equitable. 

How long does Divorce Mediation take?

Divorce Mediation can take a total of 2 to 10 hours, usually 5 to 8 hours, contingent on the parties involved, assets (what you have), and liabilities (what you owe).  However, in order for each party to make decisions with a clear mind, each visit is limited to two hours or less.  A successful mediation requires that each of you are willing to listen to one another, participate in discussion about how your marital assets and liabilities should be apportioned, and are willing to have an open mind as to what a fair division of your marital estate might ultimately turn out to be. 

Who attends the Divorce Mediation?

Both parties always attend the divorce mediation. One person will not be seen without the other.
