How Mediation Can Benefit You & Your Family
When ending a marriage, any couple may find it difficult to reach workable decisions related to property division, children, and spousal support. Although you and your spouse may be on otherwise friendly terms, varying points of view on these important topics can cause considerable stress and strife. A contested, courtroom divorce is not your only option. Mediation can offer a less stressful method of resolving disputes, while also saving you time and money. It may also allow you to reach more flexible, individualized agreements that align with your family’s needs.

What Is Mediation?
Mediation is a collaborative approach to divorce, wherein spouses work with a neutral third party (mediator) to resolve any issues that they cannot agree upon, such as:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Property, asset, and debt division
- Spousal support
A divorce mediator helps spouses work through disagreements but does not make any decisions and will not force either party to agree on an issue. The mediator helps spouses talk about contested issues in such a way as to facilitate a mutually beneficial agreement. Even if every dispute is not resolved, remaining issues can be taken to court and ruled upon by a judge.
