Dear Military Families:
As the spouse of a Marine, I have dedicated my education and my career to researching the impact of stress on marriage and family life; including deployment and PTSD. I understand that as hard as being away from family can be, coming home can bring a different set of challenges.
Facing divorce or custody issues can make these challenges even greater - financially and emotionally.
Mediation can help.
Mediation is not therapy. It is a structured conversation designed to address specific issues and establish a framework for addressing future issues. Mediation is less expensive and less stressful than embarking on a legal battle. Mediation allows you and your spouse/partner to have control over the decisions that impact your family. You can get through this. Let someone who understands help you find the way.
