Divorce Pre-Suit Mediation with minor children can provide a non-adversarial option to dissolving your marriage and has proven to be an excellent alternative to litigation. All aspects of your divorce can be resolved through Mediation including division of assets & debts, alimony, child support, and parenting schedules.
Statistics show that when a couple work toward creating their own parenting plan, that they are more likely to abide by it and be satisfied with it as opposed to being ordered by a judge on how to conduct their future family life.
As a Mediator, I do not represent either party. I work for both of you and guide you to make decisions that are in the best interest of your children as well as to accomplish the best outcome for your futures.
Pre-Suit Divorce Mediation is a voluntary process and will not take place unless you agree to participate. Mediation is your opportunity to determine the outcome of your divorce.
In the event one party files for divorce through the court, the judge will eventually order the two of you to participate in the Mediation process hoping that you come to resolve your differences on your own. If a decision cannot be made, the judge will ultimately rule on your case regarding all issues of division of assets, child support and visitation.
By attempting Mediation first, the aggravation of litigation can often times be avoided. Litigation is typically an expensive process as well as a time-consuming process. These factors need to be weighed when you go into mediation. For example, “Do I want to come to an agreement where I know what I am getting now? Or do I want to litigate and wait months or possibly years down the road to have a judge decide on the final outcome?” Neither decision is a bad decision. But the factors simply need to be applied to your individual situation.

Early in my profession, I worked in a very contentious family law practice. I witnessed couples being pitted against each other and families torn apart. Litigation would often drag on for years and when the divorce was finally granted, both parties were emotionally exhausted and financially drained.
Since 2007 I have been mediating cases for couples who want to be in control of the outcome of their divorce and would rather keep the thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees for themselves and their children.
