Divorce Mediation

We couldn't salvage our marriage. How are we going to salvage our divorce?

Divorce mediation is an alternative method to traditional litigation for couples seeking to dissolve their marriages or to settle disputes arising after divorce. The process is designed to eliminate the competition and hostility that too often occur when each spouse views the other as an adversary. In mediation, it is the couple, not a lawyer, not a judge, and not a mediator, who retains control over the decision-making that will affect the present and future lives of the individual family members.

At CMDR, mediation does just that.

Divorce settlements that are imposed upon people have a poor track record. The percentage of divorced couples who return again and again to court to resolve their problems keeps rising. Mediation offers one route to breaking this litigation cycle.

Research shows that couples with mediated settlements are more able to work through post-divorce disagreements and have lower relitigation rates. These couples express greater satisfaction with their agreements than do those with adjudicated settlements, and their children adjust more easily to the divorce. Moreover, couples who develop their own separation agreements or decree modifications find the process to be less emotionally draining, faster, and less expensive than litigated settlements.

At the Centre for Mediation & Dispute Resolution, we offer an alternative that ensures that all family members emerge whole and protected. With the help of a trained, neutral mediator, you'll identify your current and future needs and those of your family and begin the process of structuring an agreement that is both workable and equitable. Your agreement will include a working plan for now and the future and may include the following areas: Separation Considerations - Children - Division of Property - Support - Finances & Tax Implications - Post-Divorce.
