Divorce Mediation

If you and your spouse are approaching your divorce amicably, the last thing you should assume is that you will be put through a traumatizing experience that will permanently fray your relationship.

Divorce is never easy, of course, and many couples who want to finalize their divorces in a spirit of compromise often experience bumps along the way. In most cases, however, mediation is a powerful tool that can allow you and your spouse to achieve what matters most: protecting both of you (and your children) for the months and years ahead.

Our mediation practice is centered on the three decades of experience of founding attorney Mary J.B. Eidelman. As a certified mediator and former Divorce Master in the family court system, she understands your need to transition smoothly to life’s next stage while still getting results.

Mediation: A Different Way Forward

In traditional divorce litigation, both sides approach legal issues as adversaries. In this system, there are going to be “winners” and “losers” — even if neither side truly feels like he or she has prevailed.

Mediation takes a very different approach. While both sides still have their own lawyers, they instead work to resolve disagreements through a neutral mediator. Where litigation has parties vying for the advantage, mediation seeks to find areas of compromise and resolutions that are fair for everyone. Once each side has had an opportunity to present its side of the story, the mediator will make recommendations for the disputed issues, which in divorce cases most often include:
  • Alimony
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Division of marital property and debts
One reason it is advantageous for many people to consider mediation is that a mediator’s recommendations are not binding. While people are free to pursue results through litigation, mediation is in many cases an effective way to reach a fair result in a fraction of the time and cost necessary under the traditional adversarial system.
