and Your Family

Separation and divorce, particularly when children and financial assets are involved, are challenging life transitions. Mediation is ideally suited to helping individuals work through financial and child-related issues in a cooperative rather than adversarial manner.

Mediation can help parents develop a healthy, lifelong working relationship that best supports the emotional and financial needs of their children.

Mediation facilitates the healing process by

  • creating a safe, confidential space for working through difficult, and often emotionally charged, decisions
  • promoting healthy communication skills
  • encouraging mutual understanding between participants
  • seeking win/win solutions that meet all parties’ needs and interests to the greatest extent possible

Mediation can help create workable agreements for

  • asset distribution
  • debt allocation
  • parenting plans, including
    —living arrangements
    —financial support
    —child-rearing/discipline approaches
