1. One cross – trained professional co – ordinating the whole process. No artificial boundaries between child – related and financial issues.

2. Sensitivity and attention to emotions as well as to issues. With all the issues on the table there is a higher probability of success.

3. Lowest costs to clients. The method of sending a couple to a social worker for the child mediation and then to a lawyer for the financial mediation costs even more than the traditional method of involving two opposing lawyers.

4. Richard produces a complete, comprehensive written agreement.
