How Does Divorce Mediation Work?

Rather than fighting your issues through attorneys and in the judicial system, which is time consuming, emotionally draining, very costly and focused on the theory of win/lose, in Divorce Mediation, a highly specialized professional will help you and your spouse work together to reach an agreement acceptable to both of you and thoughtfully customized to best fit the short and long-term needs of the whole family.

What To Expect With a Divorce Mediator?

When couples opt for divorce mediation, they meet with a marital mediator and go over each issue and challenge. The mediator assists the couple by providing comprehensive financial and parental suggestions that serve to benefit the family, holistically. The mediation process allows spouses to dissolve their marriage on terms that are fair to all parties over the long term.  

If mediation is not successful, the legal divorce process is still an option. The parties always have the option to escalate the mediation process to divorce proceedings, when necessary.
