I first suggested we use a professional mediator because I thought it would be necessary in order to simply maintain healthy communication with my spouse during the divorce process. I had no idea of the complete scope of your practice and expertise! Your knowledge, experience and communication style has proven invaluable to us. Continued…

Typical Family Issues

Family mediation deals with issues such as:

  • Pre-Marital Agreements
  • Marriage Agreements
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Property Division
  • Parenting and Custody
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)
  • Elder Care

Children

If you have children, spare them a prolonged emotional roller coaster of adversarial dueling with attorneys.  By choosing family mediation instead, you formulate the agreement, so conflict, now and in the future, can be minimized and possibly eliminated.  Also, you can be much more prepared to share parental responsibility and participate in your children’s lives well into adulthood.

 A Balanced Team Approach to Mediation

Mediation Path can also provide divorce and family mediation using a team approach.  With a male-female team of co-mediators, our model provides the best of all worlds: balanced perspectives, combined skills, years of experience and commitment to fairness.  Marty and a female partner work as a team, co-mediating resolutions for couples in transition.  During each mediation session, clients benefit from the leadership of two highly-experienced and trained mediators.

We are committed to mediation and to helping couples achieve ideal resolutions.  Despite the fact that you benefit from two mediators, we keep our per hour rates at market level, although higher than that of a single mediator.  To learn more, ask Marty.

I’ll win in court so why bother with mediation?

Because litigation is adversarial, it can involve surprises, uncertainty, as well as significant stress.  Someone always loses in court.  You can avoid that risk and expense while managing your time to achieve a mutually acceptable result.  You are in control when you mediate, not the judge, and that can produce predictable and much more acceptable results.

How long does it take or cost?

The amount of time will vary depending on the complexity of the issues and everyone’s cooperation.  Ranging from hours to days to reach an agreement, the cost is almost certain to be less than litigation.  The cost of litigation keeps rising and the time to settle disputes in an adversarial manner is long.  Mediation gives you the opportunity to avoid that cost and delay.
