In Our Experience This Is What Works
The Mediator, Expert in Divorce Mediation
If you are considering a divorce or breakup. Planning it together is the most effective way of dissolving the relationship.
Sit down with your spouse or partner in a neutral location to discuss your feelings about ending the relationship, think a heart to heart. We understand it is tough to do. Clear communication, cooperation, and collaboration will go a long way.
Serving the other party may seem like a good idea. However, if it was not expected it could blindside the other party and may hurt the chances of an out of court agreement.
Mediation provides the best outcome for all. Our mediators never take sides. Our role is to help identify, negotiate and craft a mutual agreement of dissolution and settle out of court.
If we notice something in the mediation that may be a source of conflict, now or in the future, we may make appropriate suggestions to fit your situation.
Our mediators handle everything related to your situation: division of property, marital home, autos, retirement accounts, parenting plans (custody), parental decision-making and more.
The mediation process may take place in one room or separate rooms. The advantages of having both parties in one room are that the parties can listen and see each other, and it’s faster and more cost-effective than the mediator shuttling back and forth between two rooms and repeating the information to each party. If necessary, a shuttle style may be used for breakout sessions in the same room mediation.
If you just don’t want to be in the same room as the other party, or there are other issues or concerns, we can accommodate a shuttled two-room mediation.
Once your agreements are completed, your mediator will incorporate them into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
You may have an attorney to review your document, or you may file them at the courthouse yourself.
