Perhaps you and your spouse are interested in working out an agreement without a long court battle.
Mediation may be your answer.
A mediator is an impartial facilitator who provides:
- A neutral environment, and
- Rules of conduct to allow you to negotiate fairly to an agreement.
Along with help from the mediator this process involves the two of you:
- Identifying the issues
- Exchanging information
- Exploring possibilities, and options, and alternatives and
- Negotiating fairly to an agreement acceptable to both of you.
Does any of the following describe your situation?
- You and your spouse are public figures or business owners and you are separating or divorcing and you wish for this NOT to be a matter of public record until you have an agreement.
- You realize that separating and divorcing is a difficult process to communicate to immediate family and friends and you are looking for a confidential process to reduce the tensions and to reach an agreement.
- You and your spouse are professionals and are separating or divorcing and you may or may not be raising minor children.
- You and your spouse have had a long marriage, your children are grown, one of you has a career and the other one of you can work, but will likely need assistance starting your life over and you are separating or divorcing.
- You and your spouse are currently raising a minor child or minor children and are separating or divorcing.
- You and your spouse have had a long separation and you just want to wrap things up and move on in your life.
- Or you may have decided to separate, but not divorce.
And in any case you wish NOT to pay expensive court litigation costs and fees. And you believe you could discuss this matter between the two of you with the help of a professional third party such as a mediator.
