Divorce mediation is a voluntary process where you and your spouse make the decisions that work best for you and your family. The mediator helps facilitate the discussions, but the decisions you make will be determined by you and not a judge. In mediation one can be more creative in resolving issues than a court might allow. The final agreement will be one that you and your spouse negotiated.
A mediator can assist the divorcing couple by helping them formulate ideas that can eventually lead to a sustainable agreement. An open and free exchange of information allow both spouses to negotiate with each other in confidence.
A mediator can help keep conflict from escalating out of control – allowing you to make good decisions in moments of stress.
