Divorce mediation is a bit different from mediation in your standard lawsuit: the process is the same, but the issues are different and more interpersonally complex. Divorce mediation is about you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse deciding what is best for you and, most importantly, your children.
As in a traditional mediation, you and your spouse will meet with the mediator, and with their help, work through the issues you need to resolve so the two of you can end your marriage as amicably and cost-effectively as possible. Such matters might cover property distribution, child custody, parenting time, child support, retirement, and taxes.
And unlike divorce trials—which are open to the public and expose your dirty laundry for all to see—mediation is confidential. It gives you and your spouse a way to settle the conflict between you in a way that helps you to work together as parents without fear that your issues will make the front page.
Sometimes agreements come easy, and sometimes they take time and effort. No matter your situation, whether it’s an easy agreement or more like rowing upstream without a paddle, our experienced family-law lawyers are here for you. We’ll help keep the lines of communication open, brainstorm ideas, reality test the parents, model empathy, and help you make the tough decisions. Contact us today to discover how our decades of experience can help you effectively navigate your divorce.
