Even for the most well intended couples, divorce is never easy. The emotional and financial struggle of divorce can be substantial. Couples are increasingly turning to Mediators as it is far more cost effective and much less adversarial option than a courtroom.
Mediation is a voluntary process that helps people considering separation or divorce to resolve their disputes more quickly, and cost-effectively. Participants work with an independent/neutral mediator to identify their issues, develop options, consider alternatives and make decisions about future actions and outcomes.A mediator is not a decision maker, but rather a neutral third person who supports participants to reach their own decisions.
The process allows participants to have a conversation in a safe place knowing issues can be talked about without a judge deciding what’s right or wrong. It’s also a process that can improve understanding within a relationship.
Elevation Mediation is sensitive to the high cost of divorce, and will work to help you through the process in the best way for your personal situation. If you are just starting out in the process and plan to do much of the decision making related to your divorce on your own and without attorneys, you may appreciate the opportunity to use mediation sessions that are just focused on one or a few specific issues you are struggling with.
Other couples value the safe, comfortable space that we create, and choose to discuss most of their decisions with the help of our mediators.
Elevation Mediation is also familiar with stepping into contentious divorce situations with attorneys present or in situations where the court has mandated mediation.
Whatever your situation, we would be happy to talk with you to explore how we can help you in your unique situation.
