Divorce is often a confusing and painful time. The complicated legal paperwork, the unknown future, and the unfamiliar process make conflict even more likely.
Decisions become more difficult when we feel stressed, hurt, and afraid.
The mediator will help you talk things through to find common ground and understanding. By working together as a team, you will create informed, fair and durable agreements that serve you and your family optimally. The mediator helps you draft your documents and guides your communication. You retain control over the process. You will also learn skills that will help you in facing future family conflicts.
The mediator does not take sides with either person, provide legal advice or therapy. The mediator does not make decisions for you or tell you what to do. Instead, with the mediator’s guidance, you arrive at shared decisions, which allow you to retain control over your family’s future. The mediator assists you to prepare your proposed orders, which you or your attorney can then submit for the Court’s approval.
Just because you start with mediation, doesn’t mean you have to agree. You always retain your right to seek Court intervention on any issues.
We strongly encourage all participants in mediation to seek independent legal counsel to learn about your rights and responsibilities. Then you will be fully informed when you actually sit down to work on agreements with the mediator and your “partner in conflict” (your spouse or ex or other-parent-of-your-children).
