MEDIATION

Ending a marriage can be one of the most difficult decisions a couple will have to reach. Mediation can help couples navigate the divorce process in a less adversarial way and potentially eliminate the need to litigate in a courtroom.

During the mediation process, the couple sits down with a trained mediator and cordially discusses the issues at hand. The mediator is a neutral party and is there to facilitate the discussion between spouses. The mediation process is intended to assist couples in coming to a voluntary settlement instead of having a third party – a Judge – decide the terms of the divorce.

There are many issues that mediation can resolve including:

  • Allocation of parental responsibilities (formerly custody)
  • Visitation
  • Division of property and assets
  • Maintenance (formerly alimony)
  • Child Support

If you believe that mediation might work for you and your spouse, contact the mediators at Greenberg & Sinkovits, LLC for more information.
