WHY CHOOSE CMDR TO HANDLE YOUR DIVORCE MEDIATION? 

LISTEN TO WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY... 

At CMDR, our work is never limited to the production of a written agreement. As you face divorce, we will help you to explore options, understand the implications of support and alimony decisions, and weigh the advantages and disadvantages of different settlements. You will be able to express your needs, identify priorities, and to problem solve in a confidential and supportive environment.  

Communicate Effectively

At CMDR we believe that “You buy the product and the process.” Communication is an important skill and, if you have children, it is absolutely essential in order to co-parent successfully. Aside from being helped to “think outside the box,” as you analyze options for dividing assets, paying support, and designing a parenting plan, a skilled mediator educates you throughout the mediation process. You will lean how to propose ideas that are fair to both parties, and in the best interests of the children. This is something that attorneys, who represent one party, rarely explore.

At CMDR we believe that we have a golden opportunity to help guide couples to co-parent successfully. Mediation is the process of coming to mutual agreement and learning to look beyond the past. To be corny, “parents are forever.” Your children deserve your attention, concern, and cooperation.

Understand Your Financial Picture; Know The Devil In The Detail

At CMDR we believe that your agreement needs to be fair and also financially workable. The final document should address potential future events and pitfalls within the terms of the agreement.

There is no room to misunderstand the state’s divorce laws, but there is also no excuse for being unaware of the long-term financial effects of all aspects of your settlement, including life and health insurance, taxes, and education and support obligations. You must understand what is fair, what works, and whether the details anticipate present and future road blocks.

At CMDR we help our clients to understand how the financial puzzle will fit together after the divorce and beyond. This requires mediators with financial acumen and attention to detail.

Maintain Dignity

At CMDR we understand that divorce is emotionally and financially costly. Yet, we also know that divorcing does not have to be a fight to the end. Mediation offers you the opportunity to close this chapter of your life with grace and reason, rather than with anger and vengeful actions that actually perpetuate the pain. Mediation offers the unique opportunity to consider your spouse’s needs as well as your own. Thorough and thoughtful analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of different settlements enables a couple to design a reasoned end to their marriage, and to demonstrate to each other that the family benefits if all members’ well-being is protected.

Concrete Help

You need to educate yourselves about all the financial implications of the decisions you made in settling your divorce. Mediation enables clients to begin the journey of a life as a single individual. Providing referral sources for therapists and other professionals, mortgage refinancing guidance, assistance in structuring life/health insurance provisions, as well as loan applications and student aid, we are here to help.
