Divorce Mediation

Mediation is Confidential

Mediation allows the family to divorce or separate in a compassionate, confidential and dignified manner without dragging their issues and especially, their children, into court.

What is Mediation

Mediation is a process by which the parties engage in negotiations to resolve their differences through the assistance of a third-party (the mediator). The mediator’s role is to facilitate discussions between the parties with the goal of reaching an ultimate resolution that is amicable to both parties.

Why is Mediation so Successful

Mediation is a successful option for families facing divorce because it enables each party to be part of the process. Mediation focuses on family and relationships rather than money and visitation time (which will be referred to as co-parenting time in the mediation sessions).

Communication is Important for your Children

While co-parenting time and support are very important matters to be resolved in a divorce, when children are involved, it is equally important for the parents to be able to communicate afterwards. Mediation, unlike litigation (the process of going to court), promotes discussion and maintaining relationships.

Mediation is a Win-Win for Both Parties

Mediation is an attractive option over litigated divorce because it can provide a quick resolution, allowing opposing parties to voluntarily reach an agreement that leaves them both feeling as if they have “won” something, while saving a substantial amount of time and money. Mediation is an art that requires not only knowledge of the law, but also an understanding of human behavior.
