  • Lower cost vs. traditional litigation

  • Higher rate of compliance with agreements

  • Improved co-parenting and less conflict

  • Agreements tailored to your family

  • Greater control over the outcome of your case

  • Better predictability about what will happen

  • Personal empowerment- you decide, not a judge

The goal of mediation is to help YOU reach an agreement. 

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.
