Without Mediation, the Divorce Process can be Prolonged, Expensive & Adversarial

When a couple starts the divorce process each spouse retains an attorney and legal proceedings begin. The process can take a year or longer and become exceedingly expensive. More importantly, emotional stress, particularly upon children, can be devastating.

If attorneys have already been retained, medation can still be used to obtain a faster and less expensive result.

Even if you are not financially in a position to divorce, let us help you form an agreement that will govern the rights and obligations of you and your spouse, whether or not both of you continue to reside in the same home. This will provide a more peaceful and predictable environment in which to live.

Mediation is a Cooperative Process Reducing Time, Cost, & Aggravation

When you use divorce mediation, you can usually reach agreement on all issues in about two to three months. You meet with a mediator who guides you to a fair and equitable arrangement. Because, with our help, you formulate your own agreement, post-divorce conflict is minimized or eliminated.

Mediation deals expeditiously and appropriately with all issues including:

  • child custody
  • child support
  • spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • division of property

Mediation Can Also be Utilized to Obtain a Temporary or Permanent Separation

Even if you are not financially in a position to divorce, let us help you form an agreement that will govern the rights and obligations of you and your spouse, whether or not both of you continue to reside in the same home. This will provide a more peaceful and predictable environment in which to live. Animosity or anger between does not preclude successful mediation. The trained mediator works with the couple to bring about cooperation by enabling them to speak rationally to each other.

Involvement of Attorneys & Other Professionals

We can provide couples in mediation additional benefits from their legal perspectives. In addition, each party may consult with an independent attorney during the mediation process. Couples can be assured that, if needed, other professionals such as accountants and financial planners, real estate and business appraisers, psychologists and psychiatrists would be brought into the process. Do not hesitate to call even if your spouse is presently not interested in mediation, as we can help to resolve that problem.

There is no charge for the first consultation.

Evening and weekend hours are available.

You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
