In today’s episode, we have a conversation with Jennifer Segura & Amanda Singer of the San Diego Family Mediation Center, who share insights on mediation and putting kids first, particularly in blended family situations.
Recognizing that litigation destroys families and relationships, their practice focuses on mediation, using a process that helps families maintain their relationships and get to the heart of the issues that are causing conflict in their relationships.
They also work with couples before marriage as well, assisting couples with pre-marital mediation and prenuptial agreements to ensure couples have all of the important conversations that are necessary before getting married, that far too few many couples forget about.
For families going through divorce, Jennifer and Amanda help couples stay out of court and allow them to remain in control of their future, which saves time, money and reduces stress during a difficult time.
