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)
- 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.
