Why Choose Mediation?
Mediation is simply a smarter way to divorce and reach parenting agreements.
The process is a peaceful, confidential and cost effective way to resolve issues
such as Divorce, Custody, Child Support, Spousal Support, Property Division of Family
Homes and Businesses, Retirement Plans, Prenuptial Agreements and Cohabitation
Agreements. The process is highly personalized to meet your specific needs.
What is Mediation?
Family mediation is a 2-3 hour meeting led by a neutral and skilled professional
mediator that helps you and your partner decide all of the issues related to your
family needs without going to court.
Most importantly, mediation is a confidential and helpful alternative to litigation.
Divorce and custody litigation can take years and court documents become public record,
whereas the mediation process is a quick, private and confidential way to resolve issues.
When Should We Start Mediation?
You may choose mediation at any point in time. Since the goal of mediation is to reach
an agreement that is acceptable to both parties, it is really never too late to mediate.
Consider the cost. Litigation can be very expensive, a 2007 Boston Law Collaborative
study estimated the median cost of a litigated divorce was $77,746, but the cost of a
mediated divorce was much less, about $6,600 for both parties.
