Mediation is an increasingly popular consensual dispute resolution alternative to litigated divorces, particularly for separating spouses who seek to keep their relationships as peaceful as possible for their family. Not only does mediation offer an expedited, amicable solution, it is an excellent alternative for those who do not want the drama of the divorce process to have a negative impact on their children. Although mediation has the potential to be harmonious, it can pivot in the other direction if the involved parties are not prepared or have unrealistic expectations. With the assistance of a thoughtful and settlement minded consulting attorney, spouses pursuing mediation can ensure that their objectives and interests are met when they meet with their mediator.
In the midst of a contentious dispute, an experienced consulting attorney can mean the difference between continued anxiety and success for a new beginning. I can guide you through the mediation process as your consulting lawyer with intelligent, practical advice during this very difficult time.
