Divorce or separation frequently signifies an end. However, at Wellestein Mora Rodriguez International (WMR), our priority is the beginning of the next chapter in your life.


If a divorce or a separation becomes inevitable, we know that no one wins by engaging in a war of procedures and appearances at Court. WMR encourages negotiation and settlement, while at the same time ensuring that your rights and your patrimony are protected.

Our lawyers are aware of the emotional and psychological impact of a separation, and they therefore favour efficiency in the carrying out of their mandate, so as to avoid a dispute that is disproportionate to what is really important.


When it comes to the custody of children, WMR is concerned primarily with the best interest of your child. Divorce or separation frequently produces lasting negative consequences as far as your children are concerned. At WMR, we do our best to ensure that children are not implicated in parental conflicts. As the saying goes: “Married for a day, parents forever!” Whether or not you are separated of divorced you will always need to deal with your ex-spouse for the welfare of your child. It is better to separate without enmity in order to avoid having to return to Court ad nauseam throughout the development of your child. We offer to help you come to a long term result which will allow present and future peace.
