Divorce Mediation

As a couple’s relationship deteriorates the lines of communication close. Often the divorce process causes the relationship to become abrasive and destructive. Mediation assists in reframing this non-working partnership into a relationship of independent people. It can help change the dynamics of decision making by distinguishing business matters from emotional issues.

Mediation is a discussion led by an unbiased third party known as a mediator or “neutral.” Mediators help a couple negotiate decisions about the issues of divorce, which vary with a couple's situation, but are primarily parenting plans, child support, division of property, and marital support.

Why choose mediation?

  • Mediation is a voluntary process that requires the participation of both parties.
  • A mediator helps a couple work through decisions and come to agreements.
  • Mediation makes it easier for a couple to work through their issues. This, in turn, can make it easier for the couple to jointly discuss issues post-divorce.
  • A mediated divorce by committed parties is faster and less expensive than a litigated divorce.
  • A mediated divorce is confidential and gives the couple more control of their divorce.

How does mediation work?

Couples meet with a mediator to determine issues needing resolution. Mediation sessions occur as needed, about once every week or two, for an hour and a half. Mediators work to ensure that both parties fully understand the issues and the options discussed. The mediator is not an attorney and will not give legal advice.

After all the issues have been decided, the mediator will develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The MOU is a written summary of the agreements made by the couple. It is not signed and is not a legal document. Therefore, the MOU is not binding.

The mediator encourages the couple to each engage an attorney to review the MOU. The attorney reviews ensure that the parties understand the agreements they have made. One of the attorneys will then turn the MOU into a Marriage Settlement Agreement (MSA), a legal document that will be signed and filed with the court.
