Divorce is often emotionally, financially, and legally challenging. Divorce mediation is a process in which separating spouses negotiate the terms of their settlement with the help of an impartial third-party divorce mediator. Their understanding is then memorialized in writing by the divorce mediator in their final divorce agreement. Our firm’s personalized divorce mediation services and family law mediation services help couples explore mutually acceptable options through peaceful negotiations to reach an amicable settlement. We offer divorce mediation and family law mediation in person at our offices, or you can take advantage of our online divorce mediation services from the comfort of your home or office for those looking for flexibility and convenience. Although mediation is not therapy, it provides an environment better able to address the emotional side of divorce. It takes place in a safe, comfortable, and non-adversarial setting where the focus is shared and common goals, active listening, cooperation, voluntary disclosure, and mutual decision-making. Divorce mediation can turn a difficult, stressful, and emotional situation into a more positive experience. Here are some of the tasks of a couple’s divorce mediator:
- Explains the divorce process, timelines, and goals.
- Facilitates discussion and negotiations to reach a fair and reasonable agreement.
- Helps couples avoid having to litigate in court, thereby reducing legal fees.
- Prepares the agreement containing the settlement reached during mediation.
- Prepares paperwork to start and finalize the divorce.
