What is divorce mediation?

In mediation, you and your spouse meet with a neutral mediator, and with their help, you work through the issues you need to resolve so the two of you can end your marriage as amicably and cost effective as possible.

The biggest benefit of divorce mediation is having an experienced professional help you and your spouse work through the issues – minimizing the cost, anguish and disruption to your family’s life.

Divorce Medation

Acting as your mediator, I assist a divorcing couple in seeking resolution. I consider both sides equally and work to help you resolve the details in a fair and reasonable way. Mediation saves the pain or costly process of litigation and offers a faster route to resolutions.

  • Sensible, reasonable and cooperative resolution
  • Avoid drawn out court battles
  • Don’t spend all your money in legal fees
  • Maintain control over decisions

Is divorce mediation right for you? I believe that most couples benefit from mediation as opposed to long drawn out court battles. Don’t go to war, go to mediation.

  • Mediation is confidential, with no public record of what goes on in your sessions.
  • You and your spouse (not the court) control the process, agreement terms and schedule
  • Either spouse can have their own lawyer if they choose

Frequently Asked Questions about Divorce Mediation

What should I bring to mediation?

The initial consultation is meant to explore whether or not mediation is right for your situation. I will also give you a list of needed items at that time. However, throughout the mediation process, you’ll need an accounting of assets, liabilities, insurance, taxes and other marital related documents. Being proactive and prepared with these items will help the mediation process move smoother and faster.

How much does mediation cost?

The cost of mediation varies with each couple. Some divorces are more complex and require more time and some are fast. However, mediation costs a fraction of a traditional divorce that must go through court trials with multiple attorneys.

What to expect during mediation

Your first meeting will take place in a private office. I will explain what you can expect from the process and you will need to fill out some paperwork. I’ll collect some background information and facts. Once I’ve covered the basics, each of you will get to present your view of the issues. The next step is to see where you and your spouse agree or disagree. This helps me outline what issues must be negotiated.

How long does mediation take?

Depending on the circumstances, most take a minimum of two to three mediation sessions lasting a couple of hours each. Some take longer depending on how many issues need to be negotiated. Getting documents and paperwork gathered before mediation will save time. Identifying which issues are subject to negotiation and which are not, will also save time.

Can I still retain my own lawyer?

Yes. Each spouse can choose to retain their own lawyer or not.
