The end of a marriage is a difficult and confusing time for most families. There are many important decisions that have to be made regarding finances and division of property. If you have children, you must also determine child support for and custody of your children. The decisions you make during this time will affect you and your family for years to come.
Instead of leaving these decisions up to a Judge, many couples today choose to make these decisions with the help of a Mediator. A Mediator is neutral third party who works with you and your spouse to help both of you come to an agreement. All mediation sessions occur outside of court. Unlike traditional divorce through the adversarial court system, no lawyers or Judges are involved in the mediation process. You are in control.
Imagine being able to talk directly to each other about your wishes and concerns, while having a professional family mediator in the room guiding your discussion, in hopes of coming to a meaningful resolution? The Family Mediation and Resource Center gives you this opportunity. A family mediator works with both spouses with an end goal of coming to a civil settlement.
