Separation and divorce are some of the most painful situations a couple can face. Once the decision to divorce has been made, couples are often overwhelmed with emotion and fear. Divorce mediation is a non-adversarial, relatively informal process that allows separating or divorcing partners to work together to resolve their disputes in a way that benefits the whole family. The specially trained mediator is neutral, representing neither party, but is instrumental in facilitating the exchange of financial and parenting information to help the couple explore settlement options. Conflicts are resolved without the time, expense, and divisiveness of the traditional divorce litigation process. Divorce mediation allows both parties to retain control, which can be instrumental to their recovery from divorce. Divorce and family mediation also present families with a method to settle their conflicts so that they may continue to work together even after the divorce is finalized.
