FAQ’s That You Need to Know About Divorce Mediation

  • Why Choose Divorce Mediation When important decisions need to be made by divorced or separated couples, our highly trained mediators provide an unbiased environment for you to come to joint decisions. The mediator facilitates the discussion but does not make the decisions, keeping the power in your hands.
  • How Does It Work – The mediation process typically takes 3-4 sessions for important decisions to be made. The couple and mediator prioritize the most important topics to discuss and begin the discussions. Conversations around finances and children are common discussions handled through mediation.
  • How Long Does It Take – Each case is unique in its own way, and how long the divorce mediation process takes depends on the complexity of the discussions. Typically, the sessions last around 2 hours and the discussions are addressed over 3-4 sessions.
  • Financial Benefit – A divorce settled in the courtroom often times costs 2 to 10 times more than the cost of divorce mediation. Mediation is also easier on the couple and children mentally as well.
  • Too Difficult of a Case – With divorce mediation, our dedicated team will take on any situation that comes our way. We are open to having outside representatives such as attorneys, financial advisors and appraisers join the mediation if it is beneficial.
  • Confidential – All discussions and decisions made during mediation are completely confidential. The law states that no one can use what is discussed in mediation as evidence in court.
  • Emotional Situations We understand that one participant may not feel comfortable meeting with the other spouse. Our specialists are highly trained in making sure that both sides feel comfortable during the mediation process.
