"When two people decide to get a divorce, it isn't a sign that they 'don't understand' one another, but a sign they have, at least, begun to'." - Helen Rowland

3 benefits of divorce mediation

Is divorce mediation right for you? The answer may be "yes" if you prefer to resolve your legal matter...

  • Voluntarily - you will never be forced to agree to something you don't want.
  • Confidentially - most information discussed in a mediation session is inadmissible in court, so you're free to discuss all possible resolutions without fear of retaliation in court.
  • Quickly - you may reach a settlement by the end of your mediation session. If so, Lauren can draft a final resolution to avoid the need for litigation.
