The benefit of mediation is that it is less expensive and results in a faster resolution. We believe that all people are capable of making decisions in their own best interest. We allow an environment of discussion to help each party identify what is most important to them. Parties are expected to negotiate in good faith, treat each other with respect, exchange all important information, put the children first, and look for solutions acceptable to all. We work as a team to reveal solutions that work for both parties.
