The Mediation Process:

Divorce is painful enough; it doesn’t have to be made far worse with a costly and painful court battle. Mediation is essentially an easier, cost-effective, and non-aggressive alternate to divorce litigation. Mediation is a confidential and voluntary process that helps resolve the issues involved in ending a marriage.


During mediation the following is discussed:

  • The couple’s finances
  • Parenting time, and the most feasible parenting solution is worked out
  • Each party’s interests and needs are taken into consideration


Rather than focusing on the stress and expense of litigation in a courtroom adversity, mediation allows the couple to participate in the process of problem-solving. Usually, couples who choose mediation are always so pleased that they did. Working together with a mediator is dignified, more peaceful and often ends in far less anger and frustration.
