Divorce Mediation

An introduction to Mediation

If you’ve come to the unfortunate conclusion that your marriage has failed and cannot be repaired, consider divorce mediation instead of litigation.

As an attorney mediator, over the last 20 years I’ve helped countless families avoid the cost and stress of litigated divorce. Many of my clients lived through their parents’ litigated divorce. They know how awful that experience was for them and they don’t want to put their own children through that.

When you choose to litigate your divorce you can lose control of the outcome. When you choose to mediate your property settlement and custody agreement, you retain the ability to determine the outcome. Mediation is a process that allows you to have direct participation in creating the agreement that will be the outline for your life after divorce. Mediation is a discreet, transparent process that is softer, faster and less expensive than litigation. If you find yourself facing a divorce, don’t litigate, mediate your property settlement and custody agreement. As a neutral mediator, I educate and help couples reach their own resolution.
