Helping Clients Reach Long-Term Solutions
Mediation is a process that helps separating and divorcing couples find amicable solutions to their disputes. The process uses an impartial third party, a family mediator, who is trained in mediation.
While some couples are able to come to an agreement on their own, others need the assistance of an unbiased third party. That’s when a Family Mediator comes in. Mediation can be a great way for separating couples who can’t agree on their custody and financial issues, but don’t want to entrust their future to a judge they don’t know.
Mediators do not make decisions in your case. Instead, mediators work with each party and their lawyers separately to find solutions. The final decision is always in your hands. The mediator’s job is simply to help move the conversation in a positive and productive direction.
