Peaceful Divorce

Mediation begins when couples make the decision to divorce, then choose a mediator. Mediation has several advantages, including the fact that divorcing couples remain in control of their own fate, giving them the power to make important decisions concerning their children and their property. Mediation is also:

  • A controlled discussion intended to create a jointly beneficial resolution for a divorcing couple,
  • Facilitated by a neutral third party mediator, and could include individual representation for each spouse, as well as expert resources available to answer questions regarding real estate, finances, or even children’s scheduling,
  • Efficient and can give spouses control over the outcome of their situation.

Most mediated cases can be completed over a course of several sessions, whereas litigation can be a lengthy process involving battles in court and the need to spend a lot of money. Litigation also involves the need to air your dirty laundry in public, as everything said in court becomes public record. Mediation is done in private, with only the final negotiated results becoming public record.

Mediation is growing in popularity as a means by which couples can divorce without the bitter, drawn out litigation process. The benefits, results and feelings of satisfaction that mediation provides can help couples avoid problems down the road, that they may otherwise deal with through litigation.

21st Century Parenting Plans

I remember when the default custody arrangement had one parent as the custodial parent, and the other parent was known as the “Disneyland parent.” They had their children every other weekend, and maybe once during the week for dinner. Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More
