With the assistance of BSAW’s trained divorce mediator, couples negotiate their own settlement and may learn techniques for resolving future differences.

Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation aims at reducing tensions, not increasing them.  During this process, the mediator will facilitate the resolution of key issues and will draft the settlement agreement you and your spouse have created.  The resulting agreement will be executed after each party has had the opportunity to have the proposed agreement reviewed by their own attorney.

Benefits of the mediation process include:

  • Generally less expensive when contrasted with the cost of litigation.
  • Parties control how fast or slow the process moves.
  • High rate of compliance with mediated agreements.
  • Personal empowerment.
  • Privacy/confidentiality.
