Your Divorce: a Trial, or Mediation?
When preparing for divorce, it is important to consider all alternatives. Collaborative methods, including divorce mediation, provide some couples with a forum where the spouses can come to partial or full agreement on issues, including child custody and visitation, alimony, division of property, and ownership of the family home. By reaching an agreement under the guidance of a mediator, the couple avoids the expense and stress of a public trial. This is particularly important if children are involved since it allows parents to establish a working post-divorce relationship and avoid the trap of using the children as bargaining chips.
Divorce mediation requires a sincere desire on the part of both spouses to reach an agreement. I have extensive experience as a trial lawyer. If you cannot reach a fair settlement through negotiation, I am fully prepared to provide powerful representation in court.
