Mediation, like Collaborative divorce, is another process that can be used to resolve issues that have to be determined when the decision is made to end a marriage. The Mediation process can be used to resolve all of the issues that arise when the decision to end a marriage has been made, or, to resolve those issues that the spouses may not be able to resolve through another process.
In Mediation, the spouses, often with the assistance of their counsel, select an objective third person, called a Mediator, who is trained in the art of helping people who have a dispute reach an agreed resolution. The Mediator does not have the power to decide the issues for the parties, but rather is there to assist them in reaching an agreement.

The Benefit of Mediation
Mediation allows you and your spouse to reach an agreement regarding any or all aspects of your divorce including:
When you make these decisions in mediation, you and your spouse are taking control of the outcome of your divorce. When you allow the court to make these decisions in a trial setting, the power is taken out of your hands and you are at the mercy of a judge who does not know your personal situation and may make decisions that do not represent the best interests of your children.
Mediation proceedings are confidential and cannot be brought up in court. This allows you to make offers you would not otherwise agree to in an attempt to end the proceedings and finalize your divorce. Attorney Heilbrun will work closely with you before and during your mediation to ensure you are making the best decisions for you and your family, which may include breaks during the proceedings to privately discuss the other party’s offers or to reassess what you are willing to fight for.
Mediation can end your divorce more quickly and help guarantee you have a personal say in the results.
