Mediation benefits everyone because it
Empowers both partners and enables them to emerge from a divorce with their self-respect intact.
Protects family relationships and establishes a foundation for future co-parenting, while helping a couple end their relationship as husband and wife.
Moves forward without court delays, thus reducing uncertainty and confusions for all family members.
Focuses on the present and future, not the past, allowing both individuals to redirect their energies toward independent futures.
Avoids the polarizing tendencies of the adversary system. Mediation results in agreements to which people are more committed.
Offers an informal, confidential context for discussing the important issues, at the pace you choose.
