Shawn D. Skillin, Esq.


Biographical Info


Shawn is a neutral mediator, educating both parties on the process of divorce. She assists the parties in resolving their own divorce issues and then prepares and files the paperwork with the Court. In mediation, the parties maintain control over the process of divorce, how quickly or slowly the process moves along, and the parties control the outcome. The process is confidential and most financial information also remains confidential. Mediation is the most economical way to divorce!

Collaborative Divorce

In collaborative divorce, the divorcing parties work with a team of professionals who guide them not only through the legal process but also through the financial issues and the emotional issues involved in their divorce. Each party has his or her own attorney and coach.
