Will Divorce Mediation Work for Me?

Divorce Mediation gives you and your spouse a safe place to talk about issues by means of a managed conversation. These meetings are kept private so negotiations can proceed without the stress of outsiders knowing your personal situation.

Mediation will work for you if you and your spouse are willing to:

  • Be honest.
  • Work together even though it will be difficult.
  • Avoid court hearings.
  • Build communication skills.

Divorce Mediation with a skilled mediator facilitates an environment of communication and cooperation between spouses. Making your own decisions about the outcome of your divorce is very empowering for most couples, regardless of their family size or individual complexities.

Mediation is not recommended for cases where:

  • Domestic abuse or fear of your spouse is present
  • There is a history of violence in your marriage
