Description of Practice

Divorce mediation is a voluntary alternative to the contested divorce. It is a process in which a neutral third party helps a couple work through the issues of their divorce. It allows the divorcing couple to control the decisions that affect their lives and reach a mutually agreeable settlement. During mediation sessions, the mediator facilitates fair and respectful communication between the parties. The focus is on problem solving and decision making. Issues are identified, prioritized and options are examined until all the terms of a fair and equitable agreement are reached. Mediation takes less time than the traditional divorce and is substantially less expensive. It is conducted in the office of the mediator as opposed to the stressful environment of a courtroom. It is fully confidential and has a higher success rate.
