Divorce is a big decision to make and includes emotional and mental turmoil with financial restraints and lots of other concerns. Such a situation becomes worse for couples who don’t have the $10,000 budget to pay for the run of the mill divorce lawyer.
These parties will have to undergo the burdensome process of divorce, child support, child custody and alimony issues all alone without any aid. This can lead to depressing situations affecting their family’s livelihood.
EJ Umoh believes that families should have the ability to resolve family law related issues without going to court. EJ is the founder and Director of Operations of this organization which stands apart from mediation agencies because this is a virtual, black-owned business.
Let’s talk in detail about the foundation and its founder.
The Umoh Foundation
The primary objective of this organization is “to assist families in conflict through dispute resolution” This is a much better alternative than litigation in the sense that they are a 501(c)(3) non-profit that are providing services to enhance the community and not for monetary gain.
Through mediation sessions, families can meet and talk about the issues that need to be resolved, including child custody, alimony, and child-support to name a few.
Mediation sessions are conducted by an impartial third party that help both parties reach a long lasting and mutually beneficial conclusion.
Thus in this way, The Umoh Foundation is working for the families that are in immediate need of mediation sessions to help them with their divorce or family related issues.
