“Navigating family matters with grace, dignity and respect.”
Do you feel that you and your spouse could work through the issues in your divorce with some guidance from a neutral third party? Then mediation could be right for you.
What is Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a voluntary process that allows couples to resolve their marital problems outside of the court system. Mediation allows divorcing couples to make their own decisions and control their future by facilitating the conversations necessary to make agreements that are in the best interest of their family. Mediation enables couples to examine their own assumptions, reconsider their positions, and explore a variety of possible solutions through "brainstorming" in a safe context, where the true interests of the couple can be discussed with openness and honesty.
Mediation helps minimize the financial and emotional costs of divorce by providing couples with a safe environment to respectfully resolve any or all of the issues relating to the divorce including, but not limited to, child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support and division of property. Satisfaction with mediated settlements is typically higher because the parties have worked together. Typically the cost is substantially less as well.
