Our Focus:

Mediation in all areas of family law, including divorce, custody, and parenting time disputes.

Understanding ADR and Mediation

Mediation of family law disputes allows you to take the outcome of your case into your own hands. You are in complete control of the outcome. If you come to an agreement in mediation, parties are generally happier than if you leave it in the Judge’s hands. Judge’s will never know your situation and your children like you do- no matter how good your attorney is. Mediation is extremely beneficial if you have children, because you and the other party are much more likely to have a successful co-parenting relationship if you don’t go through the adversarial court process. In addition, mediation is cost effective for both parties. Instead of racking up high attorney bills over months on both sides, you are both able to potentially settle the issues in one session. Mediation is non-binding unless you come to an agreement and confidential.

Our Approach to Mediation

Mediation can be conducted in person or virtually, via Zoom. Mediation is a confidential process and only a written Agreement, if one is entered into, is provided to the Court. Mediation is a cost-effective and generally amicable way to resolve family law cases.
