What is Mediation and How Does it Work?

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a structured settlement process.  It is conducted by neutral divorce professionals.  NDA offers a mediation team, a family law lawyer and licensed divorce coach.  Court-based mediation offers a mental health professional, but only if custody or visitation is in dispute.  The court does not supply mediation otherwise.  The results of private mediation with NDA become enforceable agreements and court orders.  Court mediation results can be disavowed before court.

How Mediation Works

Mediation guides couples through conversations.   Clients are helped to identify, clarify, be informed, and empowered to resolve their divorce issues.   Divorce mediation relies on firm ground rules in a confidential setting.  Even emotionally charged issues can be talked about safely.  Our mediation team helps you gather and digest the information you need to plan more creative, satisfying solutions than a court force on you.  Plus, when parenting agreements and financial plans are client created, the needs of the entire family are more likely met.  Mediated divorces foster long-term parental cooperation.  And they avoid costly returns to court.

Are you or your spouse considering non-combative divorce?

Engaging in mediation may be a reasonable or even the best alternative to lengthy, costly litigation.  Or a collaborative, professional team approach may be best.  For more on mediation and collaborative approaches to divorce, please visit www.glassermediationservices.com
