Inspiration for Creative Divorce Larry Gaughan asked us to talk about what we thought it means to have a “creative divorce.” It was a great question, and after lots of thought, we created a short video for his website. What is a Creative Divorce In short, we believe divorce shouldn’t be a battle to win […]
Some months ago, we were contacted by “Equitable Mediation,” a mediation group with offices in New Jersey and Illinois. They asked us for tips that would help their potential clients prepare for “peaceful divorce” mediation. When we finished with our three suggestions, we realized that if we’re sharing them with New Jersey and Illinois mediation […]
For many years, Resolution Point has provided various presentations for The Women’s Center located in Vienna, Virginia.

Marriage is Marriage, Period. As an additional resource for Resolution Point blog readers, we’ve identified some articles published in the American Bar Association Section of Family Law’s Family Advocate. We thought a relatively recent article about same-sex marriages might be interesting history. We have other articles that may be worth including, but please let us […]
A Spoonful of Sugar Helps… Tonight (September 26, 2016) is the first Presidential debate between the two major political party candidates. Many have expressed a disquieting fear of the debate event itself, let alone what might happen if _________ (you fill in the blank) gets elected. As mediators, our job does NOT require that we […]
A young psychology student was visting a mental institute. The visitor asked the doctor leading the tour how doctors determined when it was time for a patient to be crazy enough to be institutionalized. The doctor said “We actually have a relatively simple test. First, we fill up a bathtub with water. Then we ask […]
A few months back, we wrote an article on “Third-Party Beneficiaries: Do They Matter?”. We explained what a third-party beneficiary is, what situation might cause a third-party beneficiary to exist, and why you may want to prevent someone who isn’t signing your agreement to try to enforce your agreement later. We concluded by suggesting that […]
Maybe a quote from Garry Marshall (11/13/1934 – 7/19/2016) is even more helpful than the one from Joyce Brothers that we quoted in an earlier post: It’s always helpful to learn from your mistakes because then your mistakes seem worthwhile.
People in conflict often start their self-assessment of their “chances to win in court” with an assumption: “I’m right, and everyone else will eventually understand the obvious.” It should go without saying (but it bears repeating) that if everyone in conflict has that same analysis, at least 50% of people in conflict are likely to […]

WHAT OTHERS SAY
“I would highly recommend Resolution Point. My husband and I are now in the process of reconciling, praise God. But when we met with Danny and Moné, we were separated and considering divorce. At that time, we needed to draft a formal agreement to divide our finances and define parental terms. Doing that enabled us to work through our individual issues while separated, and eventually be able to start working towards restoring our marriage. We are very grateful for the guidance Danny and Moné provided, and that they were able to help us come to agreement on such important issues. Not once did I feel like either of them spoke in favor of my husband’s point of view or mine. They are excellent mediators due to their ability to persuade without judgment and educate on such complex legal issues.”
