Going through a divorce is difficult. There are lots of emotions and concerns – worries about children, property and finances among other things. You contemplate “what will our lives look like at the end of this process?” Mediation is a good way to find the answer to that question.
Mediation is a dispute resolution process where the mediator acts as a neutral third party and facilitates a discussion between the parties and assists them in reaching a solution that is mutually acceptable to each party. In divorce mediation, a mediator helps you identify the issues, evaluate options and reach a voluntary agreement that each party considers fair. In mediation, the focus is not on the past, but it involves a restructuring of relationships that will sustain the parties in the future.
Some of the issues resolved in divorce mediation include:
- Parenting Plans
- Child Custody
- Child Support
- Spousal Support
- Property and Debt Division
