HOW IT WORKS

A mutually-beneficial divorce mediation process

We help couples seeking an efficient, yet fair, divorce settlement. Throughout the divorce mediation process our CDFA® divorce mediators will be your neutral guide in addressing all issues associated with your divorce. From asset division and custody arrangements to agreeing on spousal and child support, we’ll keep you out of court.

1. Initial Meeting

Together, we’ll discuss your situation, answer your questions, and understand what both parties are hoping to achieve. We’ll then discuss next steps.

2. Coaching & Mediation

Over multiple sessions, we’ll work with you to discuss your interests and provide guidance. If necessary, you will securely share relevant documents with us through your client portal.

3. Analysis & Reporting

We will then complete the consolidation of data, prepare our analysis, and prepare the reports you’ll need to facilitate negotiations. 

4. Findings

During our sessions, we will present our findings and offer settlement options to you. Of course, we’ll stay with you until everything is decided.

5. Legal Documents

We will provide you with a detailed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which, in many states, acts as your settlement agreement. Simply file, and the divorce is complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you’re searching for mediation on divorce near you, or perhaps looked for a mediator for divorce nearby, we got you. Our divorce mediation services are available in all 50 states.

Divorce mediation is a voluntary process where a neutral third party, known as a divorce mediator, assists you in negotiating and reaching mutually agreeable decisions.

Divorce mediation involves structured sessions led by a mediator for divorce. These sessions cover all aspects of your divorce, including property division, spousal support, child support, and parenting plans. Our goal is to help you avoid the adversarial nature of court proceedings and find solutions that work for both parties.

Our divorce mediators are experienced Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®) professionals who guide you through the mediation process with empathy and neutrality. We ensure that both parties are heard and that the discussions remain productive.

Any couple looking for a less adversarial, more cost-effective way to handle their divorce can benefit from mediation.

Our divorce mediation sessions are virtual. Being in the same room can evoke emotions that hinder resolution. Virtual mediation offers a buffer and keeps the conversation focused on solutions, while also allowing us to serve you wherever you are in all 50 states.

Our services are available for you nationwide, in all 50 states, ensuring you can access expert divorce mediation services no matter your location.

Divorce mediation is not recommended for highly conflicted divorces where both parties are unwilling to collaborate in good faith and be open, communicative, and involved. Also, if there are instances of verbal, emotional, financial, or other abuse involved, it is usually not advisable.

When divorcing couples generally agree on settlement options (e.g., asset division, child custody, etc.) but have issues to resolve, they voluntarily opt for mediation as a divorce method.

Voluntary divorce mediation is a flexible, informal process with much freedom to choose what’s best for the family. A neutral third party divorce mediator like us facilitates these sessions, aiming for an amicable resolution to keep the divorce out of court. 

Choosing mediation for divorce over traditional litigation offers several advantages:

  • Cost-Effective: Mediation is generally less expensive than going to court.
  • Time-Saving: Mediation can be completed in a fraction of the time of traditional divorce proceedings.
  • Confidential: Unlike court cases, mediation sessions are private and confidential.
  • Control: You retain control over the decisions that affect your life and your children’s lives.

     

In contrast, when either party initiates litigation to dissolve the marriage, the court may order mandatory mediation sessions before the trial begins. The atmosphere in these sessions can be hostile, and our role as an external consultant is to ensure our clients have the financial facts to advocate for themselves while maintaining composure.

In other words, traditional mediation is client-driven whereas mandated mediation (and any subsequent court-related decisions are court-driven.

Divorce mediation typically shortens the divorce timeline. A mediated divorce can be completed in three to six months, compared to 12 to 18 months for a litigated divorce. This timeline includes the negotiation process where both parties reach an agreement.

However, the timeline for legal filing can vary depending on personal circumstances and state laws. For instance, in California, there’s a six-month waiting period before the divorce is finalized.
