- Help couples to discuss and resolve conflicts in a more amicable, practical, and fair manner in order to divorce
- Help couples to write their own divorce agreement with regard to Child Support, Custody, Alimony and Spousal Support, Property Division and Equitable Distribution, and Other Relevant Issues
Divorce mediation is an alternative to litigation. It is often less expensive than litigation. You and your spouse agree to mediate, i.e. settle, your marriage in an amicable and fair manner. As the mediator, it is my role to help you reach an agreement on all relevant aspects of your marriage. I facilitate but not advise you. Information that we discuss in my office is confidential and not a matter of public record. Mediation can help you to resolve further conflicts post divorce as well. Once your mediated agreement is completed, you may seek legal counsel to file it with the court. Divorce mediation often allows couples to heal faster and move on with their lives sooner because the agreement is one that you created, not under duress, and came up with fair solutions. If you feel that this process will not allow you to have as equal a say as your spouse, such as in the case of domestic violence, the consultation and follow up with an attorney is advised to protect your rights.
