How Does The Process Work?
In mediation, a mediator — a neutral third party — is assigned. Usually the mediator is an experienced family law attorney. The mediator’s goal is to help the parties mutually resolve issues in a way that is best for everyone.
In mediation, each party can retain counsel to advise him or her and represent him or her on issues. Mediation of cases usually results in a mediated settlement agreement and later converts into a formal judgment to be approved and entered by the court. If mediation is unsuccessful, then litigation takes place.
What Are The Benefits?
Because of the time and money saved, it’s not surprising that more and more people are turning toward mediation and arbitration to resolve their family law issues. These methods are faster and more cost-effective than traditional litigation and allow for greater flexibility. With mediation, couples are able to make decisions rather than going by the rigid dictates handed down by courts. This is particularly valuable in cases involving children.

As with every divorce case we handle, we will bring the compassion, expertise and comprehensive knowledge that we have honed in more than two decades of practice to help you reach a best possible outcome.
