Mediation ∙ A Better Way to Resolve Your Divorce Issues
After a relationship has clearly run its course, most couples want to simply move on with their lives as quickly as possible. There are some couples, of course, who prefer to fight it out and go to war over every issue. But many couples have had enough of the fighting and want to minimize stress and find solutions rather than adding more stress to the situation.
As a divorce mediation lawyer with more than 25 years of experience, I focus on helping you find a better way to resolve your divorce issues and move on with your life. I am available to serve as a mediator for you and your spouse/partner, helping you raise all the necessary issues and negotiate a solution that will work for both of you and your children. I will also help with all of the paperwork required to make your negotiated agreement official. My office is in Wilton, Connecticut, and I serve clients in Westport, Weston, Wilton, Norwalk, Redding, Ridgefield, Danbury, New Canaan, Darien and the entire surrounding area.
How Mediation Works
Mediation is a form of negotiation that usually includes three people: the two parties to the divorce and a neutral party, called a mediator, facilitating the negotiation. The mediator does not represent either party individually.
I have the experience as a mediator, and I can also review your mediated divorce agreement after the fact to make sure your interests are being met.
Empowering you to find the best outcome possible
The process of mediation is meant to empower the participants. It frees you from the restraints of litigation so that you have control over the process, the ability to tailor the finer points of your divorce agreement to best meet your needs, and emerge with the best outcome possible.
Protect your children
Another tremendous benefit of mediation in lieu of litigation is that the children are not involved. In traditional divorce litigation, the children see their parents paint each other in a negative light and fight over every issue. Mediation helps reduce this trauma to children as the parents meet together in a more private setting with the help of a neutral facilitator and work out their divorce provisions in a less adversarial fashion.
Save time and money
In most cases, mediation is faster and less expensive than litigation.
