"We were in various forms of a polyamorous relationship for over a decade before we decided to formally divorce. “Divorce” felt like a misnomer for our intentions and experience, so we searched for different models and found Eli’s research. It helped us greatly to think through our experience!


We called her up for a consultation and had a great talk that has laid the groundwork for a productive process of dividing up our assets while still maintaining our sense of intimacy and closeness.


We highly recommend talking with her if you find yourself in a similar space!”
