Autism and divorce
As divorce mediators specializing in autism-related conflicts, we supervise divorces in which one of the partners has a form of autism. In many divorces, the other person is assigned blame for the split. People who are vulnerable in their mental health also often blame much of their pain on the behaviour of the other person. Accusations and recriminations rear their ugly heads and the person with autism is blamed for everything. This is unfair, because both partners shoulder the responsibility for the relationship together. The partner without autism frequently feels as though they are invisible and unheard in the relationship. The relationship can feel as if there is little emotional foundation. The partner with autism can feel overextended. Both partners experience a lot of stress, which in turn can lead to all kinds of health problems. Sound familiar? Well, it happens an awful lot.
Children with special needs
If you have children with autism, ADD/ADHD, this requires extra care during and after the divorce. Together with your expertise as parents of a child with a vulnerability, we will make sure there is a viable parenting plan that does justice to all parties to the children in particular.

Communication patterns people with autism can be different to those in people without autism. Especially in stressful situations. A mediator specialised in autism can help the divorce process run smoothly.
