Can Mediation Work For Me?

There are many ways to approach a divorce. In any marriage dissolution, there are numerous options for addressing difficulties and disagreements and reaching an acceptable outcome — without going to court and putting your personal and family life in the hands of a judge.

Mediation is a familiar term, but it is just one of the methods often referred to collectively as ADR , an acronym for alternative dispute resolution. Mediation involves the use of a neutral third party to assist our clients with reaching agreements on important matters; it can be less expensive, more cooperative, less stressful and more empowering to you:

  • With the right assistance, you can work out your custody and child support arrangements outside of court.
  • A consensual special magistrate (CSM) or private judge can be useful in cases involving complicated facts and information.
  • Experts like forensic CPAs, real estate appraisers and financial planners can assist you with tax issues, real estate concerns, business valuation and other aspects of property division.
  • In some cases, counselors and other professionals play an important role in the divorce process.
