What is mediation?

In mediation, the clients work together to resolve their issues without the involvement of the court. Clients either represent themselves (pro se mediation) or retain lawyers. The mediator acts as a neutral facilitator, guiding the conversation and writing up agreements.

If you want to handle your divorce or paternity with less cost and conflict, mediation is one of the best options. We can act as your mediator to help you make joint agreements you are both comfortable with.

Should you decide to go this route and want an attorney to represent you or review the documents prior to signing, we can connect you with reputable and ethical lawyers who will not stoke conflict. 

You don't have to figure this out alone.
That's what we are here for.

We can help you make a plan.

How can we help you through this process?

  • Explanation of what information/documents you will need to gather to prepare for mediation and/or actually "file" for divorce

    • Work through property division options to help you get clear on what is viable for you

  • Connecting you with reputable and ethical attorneys who will ensure you have covered all your bases without charging unnecessary fees or creating conflict where there doesn't need to be
