What is Family Law Mediation?

Divorce mediation is a process by which a neutral facilitator assists a divorcing couple in making decisions regarding what is best for their family and their future.  A mediator can assist with one or two sticky issues during or after a divorce or a mediator can be a guide to navigate the couple through the entire divorce process. A certified Family Law Mediator can file the necessary court paperwork with the courts including the Mediated Marital Settlement Agreement.  The mediator leads the conversation, educates you through the entire process and guides the couple towards creating amicable agreements.  With mediation, you never have to step foot in a courtroom.

Mediation vs Litigation?

Mediation saves you time and money.

Divorce attorneys often charge a $5000-$10,000 retainer upfront then proceed to bill exorbitant fees in 15-minute increments.  Our court system is extremely backed up so a divorce can linger on for years.  Mediation keeps you in control of your money and the timeline.  Divorce mediation can often take just a few sessions.

Mediation is the healthier choice.

The very nature of litigation is adversarial and confrontational.  In mediation the parties are empowered to make amicable, win-win agreements. In litigation, a judge makes all the decisions regarding your future.  Judges do not have the time nor resources to know and understand your situation so often both parties are unhappy with the results.  In mediation, your voice is heard, your concerns are heard, you get to make the decisions that are best for your future of your family.

How does Online Divorce Mediation work?

All you need is a computer or phone with internet access. Online mediation works essentially the same as face to face mediation except that you don’t have to leave your home or office. You will still have the opportunity to meet all together or privately with your mediator.  The mediator will be in control of the session and will ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.

Conflicts are caused by a communication breakdown.  Mediation gives the parties the chance to express their feelings in a nonjudgmental format. The parties learn to approach each other with respect in an atmosphere free of prejudices to reach a connection.  Mediation allows for empathy, clarity and understanding that paves the way toward resolution.
