Why Divorce Mediation?

Mediation is a useful tool to resolve a family law dispute. It affords parties an opportunity to reach an agreement on their terms and forego the expense and stress of trial.

Attending hearings and going to trial can be costly, stressful and intimidating. If your case goes to trial, you are leaving your life in the hands of the Judge. The Judge could wind up telling you how your money will be spent and what time you pick up your children.

In mediation, the parties retain control over their case and can reach agreements that best fit their lives.
