“After 23 years of marriage, my husband and I decided to get a divorce.  Our kids were in college, we were in good relationship with one another, and wanted a simple, inexpensive, uncontested divorce.  We contacted Divorce Better and started working with Martha Buzza and her partner.  Martha listened carefully to what we wanted and needed and answered all of our questions.

She was thoughtful and supportive as she walked us through the necessary steps, timelines, and expectations of an uncontested divorce and the key services she and her team would provide.  Throughout the, at times, arduous and sensitive process of completing and filing the required legal documents, forms, financial disclosures, etc., Martha was there guiding and assisting.  For us, it was essential to have experienced, accessible and efficient assistance to lead our divorce process and ensure no problems or delays emerged.  We found that with Martha and her team.”   M.K., West Sonoma County, CA

“My experience with Divorce Better was as good as could be expected in tough times. Martha’s work was compassionate and thorough as she seamlessly guided me throughout the entire process. Hope I don’t have to use her again, but I wouldn’t hesitate if I did!”  K.G., Healdsburg, CA

“If you’re like me, the thought of divorce was daunting, overwhelming and expensive.  I felt paralyzed when considering the paperwork, custody agreements, division of assets, our businesses, our dog, etc. etc.  For the first time in my life, I didn’t know what I was doing or how to do it.  I was completely vulnerable, exposed and scared of the unknown.   I was angry and deeply hurt.   Let’s face it, no one ever enters a marriage expecting to get divorced, sometimes life just gets in the way and you find yourself there.  I didn’t even know how or when we got there, but we had arrived, and that forbidden “D” word was upon us.   I always thought divorce was synonymous with a litigious battle that was fought until the bitter end.  But I realized, I didn’t need a battle to “Win the war” as seen in the movies, I just needed someone to help me, and that someone was Martha.

Martha and her team navigated us through the most turbulent time in my life with compassion and neutrality.   The “reason” for the divorce was no longer important, finding an amicable and agreeable solution became the primary goal to arrive at our final dissolution.   When tensions ran high during mediation sessions, Martha was the sound of reason and brought balance back into the equation.  She helped us stay grounded and focused as we purposefully negotiated our terms.   The beauty of it was just that, it was our terms, we made the decisions together and didn’t need spend a small fortune in attorney fees.   Divorce by definition has an ugly connotation, but the experience doesn’t have to.  The Divorce Better team will create a civil environment, while guiding you through the process of severing the brokenness between two people with dignity and grace.”                          R.A., Santa Rosa, CA

“My ex and I were worried about how we would split up our big assets, like our house, cars and timeshares.  We sat down with Martha at Divorce Better and through mediation found ways to divide stuff up that worked for both of us.  We never had to set foot into court – yay – and the whole process went pretty smoothly.  There was so much my ex and I didn’t know about the paperwork and frankly, didn’t want to learn.  I recommend Martha to anyone who is looking to get through a divorce.  She helped reassure us that the ups and downs we were going through were normal.  By working through our divorce together, our communication with each other now, after the divorce, is good.  Kid drop offs and pick-ups are not bad.  My ex and I talk about the kids, their activities coming up and other things.  I am so thankful I got to the other side of divorce and can still appreciate my kids’ dad.”  E.B., Healdsburg, CA
