When couples decide to end their legal relationship, they can choose to work with a mediator who provides a respectful and non-adversarial process to resolve issues arising from the marriage dissolution. The process is often less costly than hiring attorneys, and working with a conflict resolution expert makes the transition and agreement formulation easier for the parties. Both parents and children benefit. Many couples learn new problem-solving skills that carry over into their in the newly defined relationship.
Mediation, unlike litigation, allows couples to make their own decisions and to reach fair and amicable separation and divorce agreements based on what is best for the couple as well as their family. During this often challenging time, we provide clients a mediation framework focused on solutions and mutual benefit rather than blame, and this can make all the difference.
The multiple benefits of using a mediator include better decisions around financial issues, child support, parental rights & responsibilities, and parent/child contact issues. Our specialized training in divorce and post-divorce issues facilitates both the divorcing couple and their children to move forward based on well thought out agreements.
You can anticipate many positive outcomes from using mediation services to sort out your issues during divorce and post-divorce.
