Karen Caporaso - Divorce Mediator in Irvine, CA


Why I believe I can help couples get to the finish line and feel  they have a fair and equitable financial settlement with less stress, time, cost and emotional upheaval;

I have received basic and advanced divorce mediation training as well as training in working with high conflict personalities through Orange County Human Relations.  This organization assists at the local courts helping the couple come to a settlement themselves rather than having the judge assign a specific settlement for them.   I am a volunteer at the Lamoreaux Family court assisting divorcing couples come to a fair and acceptable agreement which is written up and signed by the couple.  I have volunteered at the small claims court in Newport as well.

I started my career in finance and accounting and obtained a degree in both Finance and Economics from Chapman University.  In 1992 I passed all CFP exams the first time and learned comprehensive financial planning.  In 2004 I completed the CDFA exam requirements. In addition I have studied and completed an exam in Divorce Tax Planning. I earned my series 7 license in 1990 and hold an insurance license.

I am a member of the CFP (Certified Financial Planner) National Association.

I am a member of the CDFA (Certified Divorce Financial Analyst) Association

A member of NAWBO (National Association Women of Business Owners)

Past President of WISE (Women Investing in Security and Education) for 2009 and 2010

Speaker at the Invest in Women conference Las Vegas2015 on Divorce and Mediation

My interests outside of my professional career is animal conservation and traveling to the Galapagos Islands.
