Mediation is for couples who consciously decide to proceed through the divorce process with mutual respect and a focus on the big picture. If each side agrees that they are amenable to compromise, mediation allows a faster, more economical, and most importantly, healthier way to end your union.
A divorce mediation can resolve issues of division of assets, support, and custody over the course of several collaborative sessions. The parties equally share the cost of sessions, and no upfront retainer is required. This approach allows parties to conserve much needed assets rather than losing funds to antagonistic attorneys.
