Mediate Complex Divorce Cases

CRT’s Advanced Mediation Training was designed to provide practicing Divorce Mediators with the knowledge to mediate the most complex of Divorce Mediation cases. The course is taught by experts in Finance and Law that regularly work with Divorce Mediators and understand the mediation process. Each Instructor teaches their area of expertise, drawing from decades of experience to make highly technical topics accessible. Participants learn exactly how to help their clients navigate particularly difficult valuations and divisions of assets and liabilities.

 

If you've completed our Divorce Mediation Certificate Program, or have worked as a Private Practice Divorce Mediator after receiving your training elsewhere, and want to gain the confidence to mediate any Divorce Mediation case—regardless of the clients' financial situations—then our Advanced Divorce Mediation Training course is for you. 

 

  • Our Advanced Divorce Mediation Training is a two-day, online, live learning program that is offered only once per year. 

  • This program has been approved for 10 Continuing Education Credits for Psychologists and other mental health professionals.

 

  • The course teaches students how to thoroughly prepare for, and use experts in, divorce cases involving highly complex financial issues, such as complicated marital assets, jointly owned businesses, and retirement assets that are difficult to value and divide, such as those requiring QDROs.

This is a 10-hour course, consisting of two, 5-hour days of live training. Both days of training start at 10:30 am ET and end at 4:30 pm ET. On each day there is an hourlong break after the morning session, followed by an afternoon session. Each session is 2.5 hours.
