Stephanie Barkett, MS Law, MS MFT

We provide full service, cooperative, uncontested divorce solutions. Our clients decide the level of support they need, to include divorce mediation and/or complete ALL the necessary divorce paperwork. We help clients keep their divorce affordable, simple and out of the courts. We can complete your divorce in 45 days. We require NO retainer. There are no suprises, you will know your costs. You can choose a fixed price package or hourly approach. 

It is possible to divorce with dignity and respect, which honors your past and moves you closer to a happy future. Stephanie will help you and your spouse navigate your divorce cooperatively so that you avoid court and the battle that often ensues. She will guide you through the entire divorce process to include the filing of all divorce documents for a fraction of the cost and with peace of mind that the psychological and emotional effects of divorce are cared for. 

​We will help you mediate custody and a parenting plan, negotiate property settlements and complete your entire divorce. Before studying family law and graduating from McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, Stephanie practiced Marriage and Family Therapy for 17 years. This education and experience provides a knowledgeable and supportive environment that allows each party to be heard and respected. Stephanie is not an attorney, has never desired to be one and prefers to eliminate the combative nature of divorce. Mediation is a collaborative approach that avoids unnecessary legal fees and arrives at a settlement agreement that can be filed with the court, without a court appearance.

In addition to having a law degree that specializes in family law and mediation, Stephanie is a Registered Legal Document Assistant (#2017-04) and she can complete your uncontested divorce paperwork. 

Divorce mediation is done privatley and confidentially. Mediation will include the resolution of all aspects of divorce to include:​

Child custody and parental time

Spousal and child support

Property and asset division

Marital Settlement Agreement

Filing of all required documentation for a divorce and child custody.

The cost for these services are dependent on the conflict level of your divorce. The most amicable divorce will cost on average $2,600-3,000. This cost includes mediaiton, paperwork and the filing of all documents required to complete your divorce. If you need no mediation and have all issues resolved, we will complete your divorce with an affordable flat fee.
