Helping You Move Forward with Dignity
If you have been thinking about getting a
divorce, you are most likely experiencing a lot of difficult emotions. Even though
you may be settled that dissolving the marriage between you and your spouse
is the necessary step, the process may feel so frustrating and complicated
that you are inclined to be overwhelmed by just the legal aspects alone.
Add to this the stress of the financial burdens which come through expensive
trials in court, which may bring more anxiety when you should instead
be working to move on with your new life.
Fortunately, there is a way to avoid the frustrating, costly, and lengthy
traditional course of going to court. When you get in touch with our mediation

How Mediation Works in a Divorce Case
A mediated divorce is about you, your spouse, and the decision the two
of you have made to be in control of your future. In a mediated divorce,
you do not need to appear before a judge, but rather will work out an
agreement to the terms of your
divorce with the help of a mediator. It is important to remember the mediator
is a “neutral third party” and will not advise nor guide either
of you. The mediator will help guide you and your spouse when you need
help or ideas to resolve your issues, but the mediator will not solve
those issues for you.
During mediation, the couple will work out agreements between them on issues
such as property,
custody, parenting plans, and all other matters that need resolution before a
final settlement is realized. Some of these agreements will come easily,
but others will require working through challenging terrain. It is essential
that the mediator be able to keep lines of communication open between
you and your spouse, facilitate “brainstorming” ideas to help
you reach creative solutions, and keep the dialogue positive and moving
toward your goal of a complete and final agreement. The mediator’s
involvement will limit, if not eliminate, arguing, name-calling, and bad
behavior that merely undermines a peaceful resolution.
Benefits of Mediation
There are many reasons why so many clients are opting for mediation, as
opposed to taking the traditional route of going to court.
A few of the advantages that mediation offers include:
- Potentially, lower costs of legal fees, since you and your spouse are attempting
to find a resolution to your issues and not paying attorneys to negotiate for you.
A speedier process, since
divorces can take many months or years to finalize, while mediation progresses
at the speed you set.
- Potentially more privacy to your marital issues.
- A smoother and less stressful process for both spouses.
