Why We Mediate

LawyerWe mediate because we care deeply about the effect of divorce on spouses and children.  We mediate because we believe that we are providing a caring, informed and constructive process for families in divorce.  We mediate because we know that it is the best way for families to successfully survive the divorce experience.

The practice of divorce mediation is a rapidly growing alternative to the traditional, adversarial approach to divorce. In place of two attorneys, each representing the separate interests of a spouse in a contest of wills, an experienced certified mediator guides the divorcing couple through a negotiated settlement. A child parenting plan, support obligations, health insurance, and the disposition of assets and liabilities are decided in a cooperative, civilized and efficient process.

Your divorce mediator’s professional skills, experience, and neutral stance will help you negotiate a settlement that is fair, responsible, and long-lasting.

Divorce is seldom easy. Mediation is your opportunity to negotiate a divorce settlement that works for each spouse and for the children. It is a civil alternative to the often emotionally devastating and financially draining adversarial divorce process.
