Who Can Mediate

Each party keeps his or her power to control the outcome of the divorce, because the decisions are made mutually by both Parties with the help of their Attorney Mediator.

Benefits of Mediation

Because you create your own solutions in mediation, you are more likely to abide by those agreements, thus avoiding the cost and stress of ongoing legal battles.
