Mediation often reduces the time and costs of divorce and puts the decisions in your hands. Our experienced negotiators can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement, fair child support agreement, and healthy child custody arrangement.

What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce Mediation is a process in which an impartial third party meets with a divorcing couple in order to help them achieve a mutual and informed agreement for the terms of their separation, divorce or post-divorce issues.

Mediation acknowledges that divorce is one of the most emotionally tolling and life altering events a person can face. Even the most amicable divorces can cause permanent scars. Instead of concentrating on healing themselves, people are thrown into a hostile litigious process where they are expected to make rational decisions about their children, finances and their future.  The results are often unfavorable to both sides and leave people more traumatized by the divorce process than the actual divorce itself.

The better way to go about this is through divorce mediation or by a new type of process called collaborative divorce. Both processes allow for people to remain in control of their future and to decide for themselves in a less stressful and non-time controlled environment.

Traditional Divorce v.  Mediation

In a traditional divorce, each of the parties hires lawyers which in turn guide their expectations based the application of the law. The traditional divorce process can be adversarial with both parties assuming positions and strategies advocated by their attorneys.  In contrast, mediation is a process in which the parties take control and make their own decisions with the help of an impartial third party; the mediator. The benefit of choosing mediation over traditional divorce is the power to gain control of the process and ability to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both parties.

What happens during meditation?

The divorcing couple meets with an impartial third party which is one of our divorce mediators.   The parties discuss their expectation and their needs and work together to reach a resolution.  Once a resolution is reached the parties enter the agreement, and the divorce is filed and the agreement is entered into the court.
