Couples often choose divorce mediation because mediation is faster, less expensive and less contentious than a traditional divorce process. Reducing the stress and trauma of the divorce process itself may ease co-parenting after divorce, as well. During divorce mediation, our mediators will guide couples in addressing all the issues associated with divorce, including asset division, custody arrangements and spousal and child support.
