Mediation is a process by which two parties present their dispute to a neutral third party, known as the “mediator.” The mediator acts as an intermediary, encouraging both sides to find common ground in an effort to resolve the dispute.

The mediator is not a judge and cannot make any decisions for the parties. The mediator works to get the parties to come to an agreement. If the parties come to an agreement, the terms become part of a contract that may be enforceable in court.

I know from experience that mediation is often a more desirable means of resolving family law issues, as it tends to preserve important family relationships that are critical to the success of the Parenting Plan, time sharing and support arrangements. I also help people with pre and post nuptial agreements. Other mediation services provided are:

Our Process
