Work With A Certified Family Law Mediator

Many times divorce court rules do not work well in solving divorce disputes. In some cases, divorcing couples do better working out solutions using mediation. Family law mediation is a process in which divorcing spouses try to negotiate an acceptable divorce agreement with the help of a neutral third party: the mediator. As a certified family law mediator, I help spouses communicate and negotiate to reach an agreement on their family law dispute. The end result is often more affordable and less time-consuming than litigation and is often to the benefit of both parties.
