Divorce is extremely difficult for anyone. Even under the best of circumstances, it is an emotional transition for families. Mediation puts the decision-making power back into the hands of the people most affected by the outcome. It also saves money and provides access to trained professionals who understand that a one-size-fits-all policy does not work for most families.
Divorce mediation is cooperative, respectful, and allows for communication that does not remove the human element from divorce, as the court system so often does.
Your divorce does not need to be an awful experience that leaves you feeling worse about your situation. Judges and lawyers should not be making decisions about your life and the lives of your children. Mediation gives you control and allows you to make decisions about what is best for your family.
