What is Mediation?

Mediation is a process where parties meet with a mutually selected, neutral person who helps them negotiate an agreement. In South Carolina Family Court, mediation can help resolve your divorce or custody case with less time, stress, and money than traditional litigation. 

Attorney Carolyn M. Bone is a certified South Carolina Family Court Mediator, as well as an experienced Family Court attorney. Together, we can help you reach a settlement agreement to resolve your Family Court case almost entirely out-of-court in a private, amicable (friendly) way.  If you are looking for an affordable way to resolve your divorce, mediated divorce may be the answer. 

In other words: we can help you work out an agreement instead of you fighting in court

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a private, confidential, decision-making process in which an impartial facilitator (mediator), helps both sides reach a solution to their problem that both parties can accept. The mediator does not take sides, and all decisions are made by the parties themselves.  If no decision is reached, the parties are free to go to court. 

Common issues that can be addressed at family mediation include child custody, visitation, child support, private school expenses, alimony and spousal support, and property and debt division, including use of the home, vehicles, and bank accounts.
