Divorce Mediation - An Alternative to Litigation
Mediation is a process where you and your spouse sit down with a trained neutral mediator to resolve the issues of your marriage without going to court. The process is cost effective, respectful of your emotions, and fast (generally and depending on your needs).
In mediation, you can resolve all of the issues a judge would decide, such as asset and debt division, property division, child custody, and support. The difference is that the decision is in your hands, not in the hands of a judge who does not know you or your children.
As your mediator, I will give you information and guidance throughout the process to make sure you and your spouse are able to make informed decisions about your future. I will also work to create an environment of trust and transparency, which will allow you to openly communicate about your needs. Due to the respectful nature of mediation, a foundation for continued cooperation is established.

The Advantage of Mediation
Mediation is a voluntary process that is driven by the cooperation of parties who share a common goal to reach a mutually-beneficial settlement.
Mediation is significantly less expensive, leaving more assets for you and your family.
Instead of having a judge who does not know the parties determine the outcome, couples make their own decisions regarding parenting plans, division of property and division of assets.
A successful mediation can be accomplished sooner than a litigated divorce — often within the 6 month, one day waiting period.
Mediation is a private and confidential process, so the dignity of your family is protected.
Mediation is an out-of-court process protecting all members from the war-zone of court battles.
