Jon Kramer has built his professional identity over the past 20+ years helping couples and families stay together. He believes that sometimes the best way a family can stay together is for the parents to part ways. The collaborative process is all about “how” this occurs. Research has shown that children do well in life, even in a 2-home configuration, when their parents are cooperative and respectful with one another. Where the decision to divorce is ultimately made, Mr. Kramer is someone who provides support, speaks directly, and helps hold the line so the divorce process can move forward in a productive and timely manner. Jon is a founding partner of the Collaborative Center of Southern California (www.collabctr.com), located in Hermosa Beach.
