The decision to divorce is one of the most difficult experiences that a couple, or family, has to endure. All too often, decisions made during this time are fueled by emotions, and are further complicated by financial concerns, child custody issues, and lengthy litigations. It is truly sad day when two people who used to be in love find themselves entrenched in an expensive legal battle, where the main focus is a hostile division of assets.
It does not have to be that way!
Divorce mediation allows couples who are willing to work together to design their own divorce without all the stress, expense, and lost time off work normal associated with a hostile divorce.
