About Fairway Divorce Solutions

While going through a divorce herself, Karen Stewart decided that there had to be a better way to go about it than the emotional and financial stress of the current divorce system. Using her experience as a financial planner, stock broker, certified divorce financial analyst and entrepreneur, Stewart launched Fairway Divorce Solutions in 2006. Fairway Divorce Solutions mediators meet with each spouse separately in order to formulate a divorce resolution plan without resorting to litigation. Fairway franchises can also assist clients with cohabitation/common law plans and prenuptial plans.
