Why Mediation is Best for Kids
In our private, confidential mediation process, both parents work together to resolve any issues related to their children.
Who Can Mediate
Each party keeps his or her power to control the outcome of the divorce, because the decisions are made mutually by both Parties with the help of their Attorney Mediator.
Benefits of Mediation
Because you create your own solutions in mediation, you are more likely to abide by those agreements, thus avoiding the cost and stress of ongoing legal battles.
Going through a divorce is never easy. Gillian handled our mediation with even handedness and just as importantly, compassion. Her methodology and thoroughness made a painful process much less so. She has our highest recommendation.
