Conflict Doesn't Have To Be Inevitable

Mediation - Common Ground for a peaceful divorce

Conflict doesn't have to be Inevitable
We can Help You As a Professional Mediator

Common ground for a peaceful divorce

Conflict doesn’t have to be inevitable.  A professional mediator can help you and your partner explore options and search for solutions in a spirit of cooperation. 

During mediation you will have the opportunity to discuss and resolve disputes with the help of an impartial facilitator.  The process is private, respectful and efficient, helping you to reach agreements before relationships ae irreparably damage or things escalate into legal action.  Even if legal action has already been initiated, mediation is useful for people seeking a more effective way to resolve disputes.

What we do as a mediator ?

Mediator facilitates communication and understanding.  As an impartial third person, a mediator makes sure both parties can express themselves and be heard, without coercion or fear. 

Through mediation, we will work together to resolve issues such as:

  • creating a parenting plan;
  • division of financial assets and liabilities;
  • division of marital property;
  • child support;
  • spousal support
Getting involved with the courts can be a costly, destructive, frustrating and time-consuming nightmare; and can last for years.   The expenses involved have the potential to wipe out the family assets, and the process creates division and hostility, affecting not just the lives of the divorcing couple, but also the children, family, friends and others.

When should you consider mediation ?

  • If you are unable to resolve your differences and come to an agreement on your own.
  • If you even think of going to court, try mediation first.
  • If you cannot afford the extreme costs of litigation.
  • If the conflict is between people with an ongoing relationship that is important to preserve and rebuild.
  • If you like to speak for yourself, and to make your own decisions.
  • If privacy and confidentiality are important to the parties.
  • If any one of the above applies to you, you owe it to yourself to try mediation.

The benefits of a mediated divorce

It may seem obvious that if you can reach into an agreement and/or enter into a separation agreement without acrimony and competition, it’s better for everyone involved. But, there are many more benefits of mediation that you may not have thought of.
  • The cost of mediation is usually considerably lower than going to court.
  • When you participate directly in the resolution of your dispute you have more control over the outcome.  Unlike litigation, decisions will not be imposed on you by lawyers or a judge.
  • Mediation is usually faster than going through the courts.  But, if you’re not satisfied with the progress, it can be terminated at any time.
  • Because mediation is not adversarial it tends to be less damaging to the ongoing relationship between you and your ex-partner. 
  • Mediation is private, informal, safe and comfortable, unlike the public, intimidating environment of a courtroom. 
Above all, mediation gives you the chance to reach mutually agreeable resolutions that are tailored to your own individual situation.  When an agreement is made freely, voluntarily, without undue influence and on the basis of informed consent, everybody wins.
