When you want together to separate
Mediation Matters

Who is it for?

Mediation is for:

  • married couples who have made a decision to divorce.
  • marriages where a separation (but not necessarily a divorce) is needed.
  • unmarried and never-married couples who have decided to separate, including LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) couples.
  • parents with post-decree issues.
  • families with situations of estrangement and issues of conflict.

Mediation is not only for couples who agree; it is a process designed to help any couple even when you may not be able to imagine how you could reach agreement.

I’m Very Angry Now! (We Can’t Even Talk to Each Other!)

It would be unusual if you didn’t have some anger when dealing with divorce or separation. Divorce inevitably is unsettling and upsetting. Mediation is not just for people who are already cooperating. The divorce mediation process is often most helpful when you and your partner find it difficult to talk on your own.

The question is not where you are now, but where you would like to go. Mediation offers the opportunity to reach a settlement with integrity; one that addresses each of your needs and allows you to go forward without bitterness and regrets.

I’m Not Sure if Mediation Will Work in My Situation

There are times when mediation may not work. In situations where parties are unable to assert their needs or do not feel free to speak their mind without fear of consequences, mediation may not be appropriate. However, mediation works in many more situations than you might imagine. Call us if you have a question about whether mediation might work in your situation.
