I’ve been a divorce lawyer for over twenty years. When my wife and I decided to divorce, we did not want litigation to use up the money we had saved for the children’s college education. We chose mediation with Don Sinkov because of his reputation as a consummate professional. The entire divorce process took two months and although we are divorced, my ex wife and I can still effectively parent our children together because we chose not to fight but to mediate. Don was amazingly effective in bringing us the closure we needed. We both thank you very much.

Mediating a Divorce After a Long-Term Marriage

{2:30 minutes to read} I am often pleasantly surprised when couples who have been married for 20, 30, 40 years or more are able to come to mediation to be divorced. Sometimes I wonder whether I could have done that; whether I could sit next to my soon-to-be ex-spouse and say out loud, “I want to divorce you and move on with my life. I want to live alone and not be married to you anymore.” How incredibly difficult would that be in a private setting, but here we are, saying this in front of the mediator, a stranger whom we just met.

Like Donald Trump, Pay Your Fair Share of Taxes, but Don’t Overpay

{2:24 minutes to read} As the years have gone on, I’ve been really working hard to make my mediation practice successful. Most of my clients are now coming from referrals, with a smaller percentage coming from internet advertising. My practice has grown steadily, and now it is time to do my 2016 tax return. This year I’m paying more taxes. My accountant says, “Don’t complain. You’re making more money.” That may be true, but I’m still getting killed with taxes. I’m trying to figure out how to pay less taxes by reading articles on how to manage your business, watching financial shows, and talking to tax professionals. This year as a small business owner, I finally figured out a couple of ways to lessen the tax burden. […]

The Dilemma of the Custodial Parent

{3:06 minutes to read} In most joint custody cases, the child primarily lives with one parent. The other parent shares time with the child around a schedule set forth in their parenting plan. This joint custody arrangement, although very common in agreements, is not a slam dunk, and to the contrary, is more often not fair to the custodial parent. The majority of phone calls and/or emails I receive are usually complaints from the custodial parent, who, after several months, realizes that the child is with them almost all the time. The non-custodial parent might see the child one or two days a week, but sometimes that doesn’t happen. How many of you have heard this before? […]
