Court Ordered Mediation - For Attorneys Only

Divorce Pre-Suit Mediation without children offers a non-confrontational avenue for dissolving your marriage, serving as a viable alternative to litigation. Mediation handles all divorce facets, such as division of assets & debts, alimony (if applicable), and pension and retirement accounts.

Studies indicate that couples who co-create their own divorce agreements are likelier to adhere to them and feel satisfied, as opposed to having a judge decide asset division.

Acting as a neutral Mediator, I guide both parties towards decisions that align with your individual best interests and future objectives. Pre-Suit Divorce Mediation is a voluntary avenue that commences only upon mutual agreement. It empowers you to control your own divorce outcome.

Should one spouse opt for court-based divorce, mandatory Mediation will eventually be required by the judge, with the aim of resolving disputes mutually. If no accord is reached, judicial rulings will finalize asset division and marital liabilities.
Considering Mediation as a first step can circumvent the stress and costs of litigation. Financial and temporal concerns must be assessed. Essentially, you choose between a prompt, mutually-agreed outcome now or a possibly protracted, court-decided outcome later.

At Mediation & Counseling Consultants, we affirm that only you can determine what’s optimal for your personal future. Over 20 years, we’ve guided hundreds of couples through pivotal life changes during emotionally volatile times.

Our support extends until your Final Judgment is officially court-endorsed.
