Mediation and Divorce Service helps couples create solutions and end in peace.
VOLUNTARY - CONFIDENTIAL - AFFORDABLE
Divorce is tough on everyone involved. The legal process itself is a hardship. A couple who hires attorneys and goes to battle in trial, will spend tens of thousands of dollars on fees alone. Emotions ride a roller-coaster. Children often suffer the worst. Money is spread thin.
There is a better way.
In mediation, the parties agree to work out a mutually acceptable settlement. All sides and issues are heard before deciding what to do. The mediator stays neutral and keeps the parties focused on the work at hand. This balances out the power and helps tremendously.
With legal procedures to guide them, the parties can proceed to a settlement that both have crafted together. Custody and property division are included in final papers filed in court. The mediator assists in preparing and filing papers. In many cases, no court appearance will be required.
