Complex compensation packages, whether inclusive of stock, stock options, RSUs, other employer paid benefits, K1 income or bonus income, influence the division of assets and the calculation of support. Rachel understands these complexities and can assist you to get the best possible result.
And Dividing Property
Characterization of property can be complicated. Whether you have real property, a long-established business, investments, retirement accounts or other complex financial matters, determining whether they are community or separate property or a combination of both can be challenging. Rachel is well-qualified to assist with this determination.
Conflict Custody Cases
High-conflict divorce can have a life-changing negative impact on both parents and the children. Rachel assists her clients in navigating high-conflict divorce by addressing both the emotional and legal aspects of resolving disputes. She employs long-term strategies to minimize the negative impact on the parents and children.

Many people choose mediation over litigation to resolve their divorce, custody, financial and support disputes amicably, confidentially and at a reduced cost.
