Divorce or separation from a spouse or partner is a stressful and deeply painful experience. The traditional approach to divorce can compound that stress because it is an inherently adversarial process that escalates conflict, drains a family’s emotional and financial resources, and generally does not result in the best outcome for either spouse or for their children. In a litigated divorce, important decisions with far reaching implications on the well-being of families are often made in court by a judge with limited time and understanding of that family’s unique needs and circumstances.
Now, you have the option to end your marriage or domestic partnership in a way that honors the dignity and unique circumstances of your family. Mediation is a collaborative, non-adversarial alternative to traditional divorce litigation. It allows you to control the outcome of your case, creating custom-made solutions to meet your family’s complex needs. Because mediation de-escalates conflict, resolutions are reached more efficiently, allowing for significant savings of time and money.
