Mediation and Parenting Services

Going through a divorce or separating from a domestic partnership can be very difficult especially when children are involved. Mediation is a positive and effective way for couples to take control of their separation or divorce without the expense, time and often damaging effects that result from litigation. Dealing with an ongoing parental conflict is difficult and can be disruptive for the parents and the children. Oftentimes couples have a hard time negotiating and communicating and that is why it can be necessary to seek out a mediator. Even when times seem too tough, or you think your issues are going to be impossible to resolve, this is almost always untrue, and mediators are specifically trained to help deal with these hard times.
