If your marriage can’t be salvaged you may want to avoid the bitterness and acrimony that can be part of protracted divorce litigation.

Our Family Law Mediation Practice
In mediation, you work with a third party neutral, who helps you and your ex-spouse find mutually beneficial ways to resolve any differences. The mediator won’t tell you how your disputes must be resolved, but will facilitate constructive dialogue to help you find solutions that work for everyone.
At our office, we can either serve as your family law mediator, or provide counsel to you as you work with another mediator. When we mediate a divorce issue, we work with you and your ex-spouse, focusing on finding ways to settle your differences. Mediation is different from litigation—we won’t listen to testimony from witnesses, or consider factual or legal arguments, and we won’t make any decisions for you. You will always be free to reject any proposal your ex-spouse makes, and to make your own offers to resolve any dispute.
If you are working with another mediator, we will help you fully prepare for mediation, so that you have the best chance of getting the outcome you want. We will carefully explain the mediation process, so that you know exactly what to expect. We will brainstorm with you about your options, helping you clarify those issues that are non-negotiable, as well as any bargaining chips that you may hold.
