Emergency Service is my specialty, I meet with clients on weekends, nights, and of course during the day.

The Cost of Mediation – Because you control the mediation process, you control the cost.

The decision making is up to you. . .

Choice Number ONE:     YOU and your SPOUSE keep in control of your divorce by choosing MEDIATION.

  • Choice Number TWO:   YOU and your SPOUSE hire Lawyers to destroy each other and then rely on a  stranger in a black robe to determine your future.      



If you choose to mediate, I will answer all your questions and educate you and your spouse so that you are both your best advocates.

Typical Questions are:

—-What do I do now?  Call me.

—-Who can I talk to?  I have been where you are, and I will listen.

—-Who understands my situation?  I have been through it.

—-What is a Divorce Mediator? An impartial third party who will educate you and help you and your spouse get through the process of divorce.

—-What is a Divorce Coach? If you choose to litigate, I educate you and prepare you for litigation process, including finding you an attorney.

—-Is there a Divorce Consultant who can help me understand the process?  CLICK HERE

—-Do I need a Lawyer? If you need one, I can recommend one.

—-How do I find a Lawyer?  I have relationships with many Lawyers if you need one.

—-How does the court process work?   I will educate you to be your own best advocate.

—-I am told the Alimony Law has changed, how will it affect me?

—-How long will I get alimony, or how long will I have to pay alimony?

—-What is going to happen to my relationship with my children?


So many questions, so many right decisions to be made. . .

     The Alimony Reform Act of 2011 contains specific guidelines and structure. I was a member of the Alimony Reform Task Force that drafted the revisions to the antiquated and outdated alimony law. My experience working with the Attorneys and the Legislature and victims of the old law gave me a unique opportunity to understand the issues concerning the parties on both sides of a divorce. I have been credited with the ability to listen and bring all parties to an amicable agreement.

“When I mediate, I educate to get an agreement in the best interests of both parties, and the children involved in your divorce.”

      As YOUR mediator, I will work to keep you in control of the process of divorce and to help you make the best decisions for your future.

  1. No matter how you look into a divorce, it’s going to be
    expensive. The use of corporal punishment in households is often considered unlawful in many of the nations covered under the convention, but whether
    or not it is prosecutable depends largely on the
    degree of corporal punishment. Divorcing is the most concrete separation you can get.

    Steve handled the mediation of my alimony modification with professionalism and prompt attention. I had originally contacted him for advice on what to expect regarding the transition from child support to alimony, because of his expertise and leadership regarding the new reform law. He spelled out in simple terms the role he plays as a divorce mediator, and what advice he could and could not give. Because he is well-connected in the legal community, he was able to reach out and get us peripheral legal advice in such matters as where to file (my ex-wife and I both live in New York State now). When we eventually filed, he walked us through the process, providing us with all the necessary forms, helping us to fill them out correctly, suggesting the best ways to avoid the pitfalls associated with working within the legal system, and guided both my ex-wife and me in how to mentally approach this emotionally charged task. He further accommodated my sporadic travel schedule, conducting a number of three-way conference calls at odd hours, and ultimately saved us both a lot of money, aggravation and the need to travel back and forth to court in Boston. Steve was a immense pleasure to work with and I highly recommend his services.

    Dear Mr. Hitner,

    PLEASE help us in California getting our laws changed regarding spousal support. I am asking for your help in alimony reform. I have lost my only home, I lost our rental property to my ex, I went bankrupt by being handed ALL of our debt, I lost my life insurance to my ex as well as almost all the furniture. I pay my ex over 1100.00 dollars a month. I am remarried and have a wonderful wife but I am broke every two weeks right after I get paid. I have been ordered a support order for life. My ex no longer works. She gets ssi as well as my monthly payments. I don’t understand how I can be ordered to pay for life. To me this is involuntary servitude which I believe should be unconstitutional per the 13th amendment. Please please please do something about life time alimony. I have already had two heart attacks and the stress is killing me. We are divorced. That should cut all ties. My ex gets to retire for life and I am suffering more than you know. Please help.

    Marcel Elias
