Mediation is a process that puts your divorce in your hands, instead of in the hands of a judge. It allows you to sit down with an experienced neutral who will help keep delicate discussions from erupting into arguments and will guide you to a resolution through negotiation and compromise.
Mediation saves money. Because both parties usually share the cost of mediation instead of paying two attorneys to resolve the dispute in court, the cost of mediation generally is substantially less than the cost of litigation (going in front of a judge).
Mediation saves time. It can take months to get a court date to resolve just one of numerous issues in a divorce, and it can take months to draft, sign, and file a final Judgment in a case. Our mediation clients are usually divorced within a year, while litigation can take several years.
Mediation saves heartache. You get to work with your spouse to come to a peaceful solution to end your relationship. Mediation allows you to honor your marriage and show your respect for the other person through negotiation and compromise. For divorcing parents, mediation can set the foundation for a successful co-parenting relationship.
