People hope to stay together forever, but sometimes things just don’t work out that way. Even the best relationship may eventually end in a divorce. An emotional time, during which your entire life seems to be turned upside down all at once. Especially if you have children together, but also if for instance a business may be at stake. And at the same time it is necessary to organize a lot of things. I will support you in this difficult time towards a lasting solution, so that you can get on with your life.

In many cases mediation is an excellent way to settle the consequences of a divorce. As a mediator I will consult with you both to make arrangements which you can both support. For instance about the costs of childcare. Or I will give advice on a parenting plan.

If mediation is not an option I will support you with determining appropriate mutual arrangements that are necessary in case of a divorce. Your interests and the things that keep you busy are the first priority to me. In my specialist field of law it is an advantage to be able to really listen and empathize with a person in a certain situation. But if necessary I will also tell it like it is. I will spare no effort for you, without making empty promises. That’s who I am. Clients tell me that I am energetic and honest. Also if things eventually end up in court.

In 2006 I started out as a lawyer, specialized in law of persons and family law. I have supported married and unmarried couples, with and without children, entrepreneurs and self-employed persons. Parents who had to deal with youth care agencies or the Child Care and Protection Board. People who needed assistance years after a divorce because the situation had changed. But I am also there for you if you need a second opinion.
