Mediation is a cost-effective alternative to the litigation process that enables spouses to negotiate more openly in a confidential and settlement focused environment. Mediation is a confidential dispute resolution process that involves you and your spouse meeting with a professional mediator who serves as a neutral third party. Also, since mediation is a voluntary process, you or your spouse can withdraw at any time.
The mediator can facilitate an agreement between you and your spouse designed to achieve what is most important to each of you.
The mediator cannot give legal advice to either you or your spouse.
The mediator can facilitate a win-win resolution by enlisting a variety of tools uniquely designed to neutralize and resolve conflict.
The main benefits of mediation are that it keeps you and your spouse in control of your own outcome and enables both of you to reach an agreement with far less conflict than traditional divorce litigation. Also, you are each more likely to be satisfied with the process and the results while spending less time and money.
When you work with me, I meet with both of you to reach a mutually agreeable resolution on any or all of the issues that need to be resolved – child custody, parenting time, child support, payment of college expenses, alimony, and/or division of marital assets and debts.
The initial session will focus primarily on how the mediation process works, the issues to be resolved, and the fees involved. We will also determine the most efficient and cost effective way to achieve a mutually agreeable resolution.
