What is Mediation
Mediation is a confidential, voluntary process that helps participants discuss their differences and develop a solution that is acceptable to all. The mediator is neutral and helps everyone to communicate, be heard, and negotiate respectfully. The mediator will not take sides, make decisions, or provide legal advice.
Divorce mediation allows spouses to develop a workable solution without involving the courts. Collaborative discussions are facilitated regarding parenting, finances, and other issues important to the couple. Depending on the outcome, we develop a memorandum of understanding to memorialize the agreement reached by the couple during the mediation sessions. The memorandum of understanding is provided to a drafting attorney who prepares and files the legal documents necessary to divorce. We can recommend the drafting attorney, or the couple can bring their preferred attorney into the process.
