What is Divorce Mediation

Divorce Mediation is a confidential process where couples seeking a divorce voluntarily come together with a neutral third-party mediator to negotiate an amicable divorce settlement. In divorce mediation, couples are empowered to reach an agreement that works for them and their children. The mediator is present to ensure a cordial discourse and to assist each spouse with expressing their point of view and perceiving the other spouse’s point of view.

Why Mediate

Take control of your divorce while saving your money and your time. 

 

In mediation you control what your divorce looks like, not the court system. Divorce Mediation is a process where couples seeking a divorce voluntarily come together with a neutral third-party mediator to negotiate an amicable divorce settlement. Agreements can only be reached if both spouses agree to all of the terms.
