State College Divorce Mediation Lawyer
When you and your spouse decide to end your marriage, your divorce does not have to become a bitter dispute. A Divorce Mediation Lawyer is a chance at a new beginning.
When you choose mediation, your divorce becomes more cooperative. The mediation process allows the airing of hurt feelings and letting go of grievances. It can be a less stressful and more efficient, cost-effective way to end conflict.
Sadly, our legal system is largely designed so that one party will win and the other will lose. The traditional litigation process encourages conflict by focusing on protecting rights and gaining the advantage. In a high-conflict divorce, it is typically the children who are caught in the middle and suffering.
We understand you want to avoid an expensive and competitive struggle where only one side “wins.” With mediation, both sides have absolute say in and approval of the final agreements.
For some, the idea of making important decisions about finances and legal matters in mediation can seem daunting. However, that is why we are here to help. Part of the role of the mediator is to provide general information needed to explore your options and make decisions. When necessary, we also seek the advice of other experts, whether they are spiritual, therapeutic, financial, or otherwise.
