DIVORCE MEDIATION

THE WISE ALTERNATIVE TO LITIGATION


COSTLY/LENGTHY LITIGATION. MEDIATION AFFORDS BOTH PARTIES THE GREATEST PROSPECT FOR A SUCCESSFUL DIVORCE


WHAT IS MEDIATION?

A non-competitive and supportive setting in which to resolve the conflicts that arise during separation and divorce in a civilized, less emotionally painful manner.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A specially trained professional helps you and your spouse work together to reach agreement. The mediator will help couples separate their roles as spouses, which is ending; from their roles as parents which is continuing.

WHY MEDIATE?

  • Reduce Tension
  • Reduce Legal Costs
  • Reduce the time it takes to go from deciding to get a divorce and actually being divorced.
  • Retain control over decisions that effect the rest of your life and the lives of your children.
  • Create your own agreement voluntarily. It is more likely to be followed if it is the product of your own efforts.

WHAT IS DECIDED?

  • Child Support
  • Division of Property
  • Parenting arrangements
  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • Tax implications
  • Ways to avoid future problems

WHAT SHOULD YOU ASK YOURSELF?

  • how do we restructure our present family into two new family units?
  • how do we now care for our children?
  • how do we pay our bills and divide up our property?
  • how can we accomplish all of these without hating each other, hurting our children, and spending our life savings on attorney fees?

RULES FOR MEDIATION

1. All Sessions are confidential and not admissible in any court.

2. The Parties must disclose all assets, income and liabilities.

3. Any party may consult with any other professional (Attorney or Therapist) at any time during the mediation.

4. Either party is free to change their mind at any time until final agreement.

5. The final agreement need not be signed and should be brought to each party's attorney to be put in final form for signing.

6. Physical violence, threats or coercion or any type are not allowed.

7. The mediator will meet with each party individually when necessary.

8. Either party may quit at any time.


IF YOU HAVE DECIDED TO SEPARATE OR DIVORCE, THE WISE ALTERNATIVE TO LITIGATION IS MEDIATION TO AVOID COSTLY AND LENGTHY LEGAL BATTLES.
