Paul Sweatman

Divorce Mediator


As a trained mediator, I specialize in the fundamental financial and parenting issues facing separating couples, and in facilitating separation plans. Divorce mediators like me can't provide legal advice, but we can get you 90% of the way to the finish before involving a family or divorce lawyer.
