A Civil Resolution to Separation

I could not have hoped for a more civil resolution to our separation. I have several friends going through the end of their marriages, all of them are going through the legal process. Each started way before we did, and none are near resolution. I credit the Fairway process for helping us mediate through an emotional time. I would recommend this process to those that are of the mindset of working together to bring their relationship to an end.
