How can Mediation help me?

Mediation is an out-of-court settlement process that is guided by a neutral third party mediator.  Divorcing spouses meet with the mediator, name their goals and questions to be answered.  With the help of the mediator, each spouse is able to be heard (and listens to the other!) and brainstorms possible solutions to the issues.

As mediator, Kristin facilitates conversations between spouses so they can move towards an agreement each feels comfortable about.  By talking directly to each other - openly and respectfully - each person has the opportunity to address the important issues, ask the hard questions, and discuss what can potentially work for each person moving forward.

A mediator cannot make the decisions, but mediation provides divorcing spouses the space to determine their own outcomes.  Committing to the mediation process means not having a judge tell you how to divide your property and what your parenting time will be.
