A process where spouses meet with a neutral third party who will help resolve custody, property and support issues. The goal is to obtain a legally binding, stipulated Judgment of Dissolution. At Mediation, you make decisions in a private setting. Unlike the Judge, the mediator does not make decisions for you. Instead, a mediator will help you to explore alternatives. The aim is for you and your spouse to reach solutions tailored to the specific needs and wishes of you and your family.
Generally, mediation is a less expensive alternative to traditional adversarial representation. Mediation can also significantly reduce the time it takes to finalize a divorce or registered domestic partnership.
If interested in mediation contact the office and schedule an appointment to meet with the attorney or mediator together with your spouse or partner. In order to maintain neutrality contact should be with both people.
