Mediation is a concept giving couples and parents another option in the divorce process
Mediation is a process divorcing couples engage in to settle issues of conflict within the divorce. Mediation relies on direct communication between spouses, with the mediator keeping the dialogue constructive and focused on the issues. Mediation preserves control over your individual and family’s future. A mediator offers structure and professionalism to the divorce process, helping couples elop more satisfying solutions.
Mediation focuses on solutions rather than blame
As a mediator, Terri encourages couples to use their intelligence and energy toward creative problem solving rather than towards recriminations or revenge. Focusing on solutions instead of placing blame. Terri encourages couples to communicate their needs in the divorce process rather than demanding their own way, giving each individual control of the decision making process. Terri will help couples see the long term view of their lives after divorce rather than the small victories of conflict.
Mediation is a cost effective tool for dispute settlement
The costs associated with traditional divorce can include separate meetings with attorneys, telephone calls with you and the other attorney, settlement conferences and court preparations. Those processes still occur, yet Mediation offers additional value to those divorce dollars. Terri as your mediator, will keep communication open and direct with an agenda and plan to address the divorce conflicts. This mediation method offers step by step progress for the dollars spent, making mediation a valuable tool in any conflict.
