What is Mediation? Why Mediate?
A divorce is a stressful time for all parties involved. It is not just filing divorce papers. There are so many emotions that have to be worked through -- sorrow, shame, anger, denial, and guilt. If you are facing a divorce, or a separation, at times you may feel that you have no control over your life.
Family Law Mediation can help you take control back. A less adversarial setting than a courtroom. With the help of an experienced neutral Mediator as a facilitator, family law mediation allows you and your partner to determine the issues you are facing. Your issues of concern may include divorce, separation, child custody, parenting plans, child support, alimony, equitable distribution, prenuptial agreement, cohabitation agreement, GLTB issues, and any other issues of concern.
Once your issues are listed, you and your partner will each have the opportunity to discuss your viewpoints and concerns regarding each. With the help of the Mediator, you can work on an overall agreement that addresses concerns, and that you each feel will work best for your situation.
By amicably addressing your issues, and working together, you will not only save money compared to traditional legal proceedings, but also save on feelings that are often further damaged during the course of litigation and traditional negotiations.
Mediation is not for divorce proceedings only. Most domestic relations issues can be addressed in Mediation, including issues for married and non-married couples and families. Addressing issues for GLTB families and couples. Mediation may also be appropriate whenever there are interpersonal issues in conflict.
Benefits of Mediation, vs. litigated proceedings, include:
