Strongly recommend for divorce and child custody problems

Very professional and extremely helpful. I really feel that without her guidance I would not have been able to get through my painful divorce. She was able to help me and my children. I can't recommend her enough for any divorce or child custody issues you are having.

Very helpful

Dr. Portanova was very helpful during my mediation. Her ideas and feedback helped me see things clearly. I'm glad I went with mediation instead of dealing with the courts.

Positive Outcome

I was ambivalent at first, but Dr. Portanova was very understanding and caring. She is very knowledgable and helped me through a difficult and stressful custody situation. My ability to co-parent greatly improved because of Dr. Portanova's expertise. I would have never been able to achieve such a positive costody outcome without her.
