MEDIATE FOR LIFE

The underpinnings of a traditional adversarial litigated Divorce are fraught with positional posturing, runaway costs and expenses, and a “winner take all", bully mentality.
Mediation brings the power back to YOU.
In Divorce Mediation, the couple voluntarily sit down together, with the guidance of the Co-Mediators, and begin the process of communicating their needs and expectations concerning a wide spectrum of issues. The crux of Mediation is to turn away from past destructive behaviors and blame, and stand firm on the promise to redefine the future with respect, integrity, self-esteem and a strong, truthful voice.
MORE POSITIVE, MORE CUSTOMIZABLE, MORE AFFORDABLE The Mediation forum allows for mediation sessions to be tailored to the specific needs and concerns of the couple. The Mediators are fully present, yet neutral and impartial, serving to guide and support the couple as they work together to attain a durable and positive Agreement. With open communication and a safe and sane enviroment, time, cost and destructiveness is minimized and neutralized.
PRIVACY In Divorce Mediation your privacy is tantamount to a commandment and represents a repudiation of adversarial-courthouse litigation. Whereas in Court, financial information, personal information, grounds for divorce and matters concerning children, are open to public scrutiny, the exact opposite is true with Divorce Mediation. It is with Divorce Mediation that your private life remains protected, confidential and safe.
MEDIATION WORKS The wonder of mediation is that even if it appears that there is no agreement between the parties before mediation, as long as there is a willingness to discuss the issues with transparency and respect, then, with the guidance of the mediators, decisions can be reached.
