Divorce Mediation Support Services
Divorce mediation is a voluntary process whereby the mediator facilitates respectful separation of a couple’s marriage by helping both parties reach agreement about issues in a collaborative, consensual, and informed manner. Mediation is not a substitute for independent legal, financial, or professional advice. All parties are advised to seek other professional and legal counsel during mediation prior to finalizing any agreement reached at mediation.
Why Choose Divorce Mediation?
Divorce Mediation can reduce the financial and the emotional upheaval often associated with divorce. In most circumstances, individuals select mediation to save money. However, the more significant benefit is avoiding the negative, emotional fallout from a drawn out acrimonious divorce, especially when children are involved.
During the divorce mediation process, most couples gain insight on how to begin discussion to resolve the issues. In the event that a future issue should escalate, it gives the couples a place to return to resolve the issues before they spiral out-of-control.

Each spouse agrees to try to work with the mediator in dissolving the marriage.
Reduce Hidden Agenda
Each spouse agrees to share all financial information with the mediator.
Neither party seeks to harm (e.g. revenge) the other during this process or in the future.
