Clean Sweep Divorce. (www.cleansweepdivorce.com)

I didn’t set out to become a divorce coach, but looking back, I realize my passion for problem-solving and helping others guided me to this promising and rewarding profession.

As a lawyer, I enjoy the intellectual challenge of untangling complex legal issues involving families, real estate, and small businesses. I find satisfaction relating to everyday problems, advocating for my clients and guiding them through challenging situations. As my kids have grown and my career as a small town attorney has evolved, I noticed that legal expertise wasn’t enough. My clients needed more than just knowledgeable legal advice – they needed support and guidance to rebuild their lives after divorce, disputes, litigation and trouble.

This evolution rekindled an interest I had as a communications major at Cornell University, and I met a local divorce coach who suggested I become certified. I started researching the field and discovered my legal background coupled with coaching techniques could truly help people transition through divorce and other conflicts in a more organized and healthy way.

I have added Divorce Coaching to my professional services. I am NOT acting as a Matrimonial or Family Law attorney, but solely as a divorce coach. According to the ABA, Divorce coaching is a flexible, goal-oriented process designed to support, motivate, and guide people going through divorce to help them make the best possible decisions for their future, based on their particular interests, needs, and concerns.

Legal Answers
26 Questions Answered
Q. what deed form do I file in the state of NY?
A: I would recommend working with a title company to file a deed. If you would like assistance, hire a local real estate attorney or give me a call and I can work with you to get it done.
Q. I have a purchase agreement now owner wants me to sign a rental agreement I plan to sue for breach of contract
A: Your question is not detailed enough to make a decision and give legal advice. The real estate purchase agreement may have provisions which address this. There are pro's and con's of your course of action. You should consult with a local real estate attorney/litigator because you may find the cost of litigation prohibitive.
Q. My ex boyfriend and I are co-owners of a house. The new agreement says I have sole & exclusive residency of the property
A: There are many "layers" to your question. First, you say "new agreement" -- does the agreement handle this issue. More importantly, do you intend to separate the ownership by doing a "buyout" of his interest. Do you have any legal restraints upon his presence in your life. Seems like you should flesh out the agreement and consider the buyout.
