Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is a cooperative process in responsible problem-solving that calls upon the best attributes of each partner to build a lasting agreement that is suitable to their needs and lives.

By working with a trained mediator and licensed counselors, the experience is much less stressful and emotional for those involved. It is also less expensive and faster than the traditional divorce process because the divorcing couple pays one mediator instead of two attorneys.

If children are involved, divorce mediation enables the divorcing parents to remain in charge of their children’s interests and needs and to construct a cooperative parenting plan.
