Ideal for Low-Conflict Divorce
Our Conscious Uncoupling package combines coaching, consulting and mediation to create a holistic and high-touch approach to divorce, designed for couples who wish to maximize cooperation and minimize attorney involvement. The process follows the traditional five stages of mediation to help each of you clearly see the big picture, understand your top priorities, and work towards the most supportive outcome for your family and your future.
Our package includes a combination of individual and joint sessions with our team where we focus on parenting, finances, and building your best future. Also included are paralegal services to prepare and draft the necessary court forms for final attorney review and filing. Attorney and court filing fees are billed separately.
How DSNW Can Help:
Our team will support you through our coaching and mediation services, designed to help you and your spouse remain amicable, and reach a mutually-desired outcome for your family. Even in amicable cases, issues of contention nearly always arise, at some point during the dissolution process. Working with our team helps you understand your rights and sort through the myriad of details, enabling you to arrive at a settlement division that is acceptable to all. This relieves stress on the family and puts you in control of this emotional, stressful process.
We help you identify your goals, understand, and ask for what you want and need. We educate you on the process, helping you negotiate from a place of power and compromise. As part of the mediation process, we will draft a detailed parenting plan and a thorough financial settlement agreement. We advocate for peaceful resolution and solutions that will be functional for you and your family, now and into the future.
Our team’s approach is unique and differs from traditional mediation. We provide personal, in-depth coaching, along with mediation services, to help you understand your goals, and create an action plan for moving forward. Ours is a more customized + holistic approach and increases the likelihood of a satisfying outcome for both parties and for your children, long-term.
DSNW provides you with:
Once you and your spouse have agreed upon final terms, our package includes transitioning you to our paralegal for final preparation and drafting of the legal documents. The last step in the process is an attorney review and filing of the documents. Attorney and court filing fees are billed separately.

I needed so much help when I decided to leave my marriage, but every attorney wanted more money… and I felt like I was getting nowhere! A friend suggested I talk with Stephanie and her team at DSNW. OMG, exactly what I needed! I needed a plan. A clear roadmap to get out.
Divorce Strategies Northwest was just what I needed when my husband surprised me with divorce paperwork. Their wise team guided me through the scary maze I was being forced to walk, and their leadership was exactly what I needed.
The DSNW team helped me determine my goals, gather my documents and ready my children, so we could create and live a better life together. By the time I hired an attorney, I was ready. I felt confident. The divorce process was swift, focused, and far less draining and expensive.
DSNW walked me through the darkest days and helped me find professional help I didn’t even know was out there. They were empathetic, caring and insightful, during a process I wasn’t sure I could survive. Besides saving me money, they brought HOPE back into my life.
