Arbitration, Negotiation & More

Like Collaborative Divorce and Early Neutral Assessment, mediation is a viable way to resolve differences and execute the divorce process without the court time and contentiousness that many couples fear.

Working through the mediation process, a mediator acting as a neutral party works through issues with you and your spouse in a forum that is less about "winning" and "me versus them" and more about creating a resolution that helps create balanced outcomes.  Mediation can help preserve positive relationships between parties – relationships that are particularly important when children are involved and couples will share in the raising of their children.

Mediators are trained to secure outcomes that reflect compromise and the best interests of each party, as they remain neutral throughout the process.

Before beginning mediation, it is always helpful to work with your lawyer to identify issues that may present problems and develop outcomes and scenarios that provide you comfort and confidence.

Mediation – like other approaches to divorce, from the conventional to the non-traditional – is not for everyone.  Click here for more information on whether mediation might be beneficial in your situation.
