Jann is committed to helping divorcing families develop and maintain positive relationships as they transition to post-divorce. According to Jann, “Pain, anger and loss often remain unresolved in a divorce. My goal is to help you address these issues so you can develop healthy communication skills to resolve your unique issues of separation, and the custody and co-parenting of your children.”  Jann is dedicated to helping you become your own best advisor. Ms. Glasser conducts mediations or acts as coach in the Collaborative Divorce process, each of which allows couples to maintain their dignity and respect for one another, while protecting their children from what could be the destructive effects of court combat.

Mediation is a no court option for dissolving  your divorce. Through facilitated negotiations,  clients identify, clarify and resolve issues  raised by your divorce. This neutral process  rests on firm ground rules and a confidential  environment. Even emotionally charged issues  can be talked about safely. Our husband/wife  attorney/therapist mediation team offers a gender  balanced approach to helping you gather necessary  information, and can help you formulate a more  creative, satisfying solution than may be possible  for a court to offer.
Neither the attorney or therapist mediator acts  as advocate for either one of you. Mediation  helps each of you to clarify your concerns,  interests and values while allowing you the  retain the decision making power for your final  agreement.  When parenting agreements and  financial distribution plans are created by  the Partners themselves, there is a better chance  of satisfying the needs of the entire family.  Mediated divorces have a higher rate of long-range  parental cooperation and a lower frequency of  costly court returns.
My role as your co mediator is to serve as “air  traffic controller”, helping you to separate  volatile emotions from sound decision making.   The attorney mediator  bring over 30 years  of family law experience to the process.   Together, our years of combined experience and  skill in conflict resolution help you and your  spouse arrive at a viable Marital Settlement  agreement
Mediation will enable you to:
  • Resolve your parenting plan fairly.
  • Control the outcome of your divorce.
  • Reach an equitable financial agreement.
  • Save money.
By avoiding the combat of the litigation process,  the stage for continuing cooperation in raising  children is set.
Benefits of a Mediated Divorce:
  • Enables individuals to emerge  from a divorce with dignity and self-respect.
  • Empowers both parties to recognize  legitimate needs, and helps them develop  options to meet those needs.
  • Mediation establishes a foundation  for future co-parenting. It protects  family relationships while helping a  couple dissolve their relationship as  husband and wife.
  • Focuses on the present and  the future, not the past, and helps  individuals move beyond the past to  direct their energies toward independent  futures.
  • Avoids the polarizing tendencies  of the litigation system.
  • Reduces uncertainty for the  family, and minimizes confusion and  delay for children.
  • Offers a confidential, informal  context for reaching agreement.
  • Allows for more control over  the costs of the process.

If there is still adequate trust  between you and your spouse and the two  of you can work together agreeably to resolve  your financial issues and parenting arrangements,  mediation may be right for you
