Is Mediation Right for Us?
Do you and your spouse/co-parent want to work together to resolve your divorce, separation, or custody matter, but don't know how?
Mediation is an alternative to contested litigation, which allows parties to make their own decisions.
You know your children, partner, finances, history, and plans for the future better than any third party- attorneys, judges, and even the mediator- ever will. Mediation can help you apply that knowledge and reach an agreement that is tailored to the needs of you and your family.
Our Charleston-area divorce mediator can help you resolve your Family Court dispute quickly, efficiently, and effectively. Family mediation can address issues such as custody, visitation, child support, property and debt division, and other child and family matters - often in a way that helps preserve family and co-parenting relationships.
Parties may choose to mediate in the same room, or may be in separate rooms. The mediator will give both parties an overview of mediation, as well as some "ground rules" for a successful day. We'll identify issues that need to be addressed, and work together to find acceptable solutions.
The mediator will then work to help both sides reach an agreement, focusing on win-win solutions. At the end of the day, both parties will be given a memorandum of agreement to sign, if mediation is successful.
