Get your life back on track and find normalcy again. Alleviate the tension of the divorce process. Often, time has to pass and wounds will heal - make your mind up to resolve issues, make the decision to get your life back on track.
Peacemaker Mediation is an alternative to courtroom litigation and is here to help you in this process of beginning your life again after divorce. Peacemaker Mediation provides the foundation for creating stability in your situation. If you and your spouse can agree that it is the two of you that are the most appropriate persons to make the decisions that will affect the rest of your lives, the hard part is done. Property, child support, parenting, alimony and debt issues can be resolved. Peacemaker Mediation can negotiate a divorce settlement agreement that most will be satisfied with.
Additionally, Peacemaker Mediation offers document preparation services. If you and your spouse have come to an agreement regarding the terms of your divorce, Peacemaker Mediation can prepare all of the appropriate documents (beyond just your Marital/Divorce Settlement Agreement) which pertain to your particular situation based on the decisions you make to design the rest of your life. We will guide you through the process and help you determine the forms that are applicable to your situation.
An uncontested divorce can be finalized usually within 45 days or less from the time of filing the appropriate documents and depending on which Division of the Court the case is assigned.
Courtroom litigation is expensive and does not put you in control of the final agreement. Many throw money at attorneys in hopes that their side will prevail, seeing the divorce process as a win or lose situation. Recent economic times have revealed the value of mediation, both in time and money but most importantly mediation puts you in control of your unique situation. It should be noted attorneys can offer something I cannot, legal advice. It is always wise to seek such advice when moving through the divorce process. However the bantering back and forth is not so productive and can be financially unwise.
Peacemaker Mediation allows time for the communication necessary to reach your own settlement. It is done in a comfortable setting and usually takes a couple of 2-3 hour sessions. Sometimes this is done in the same room as your spouse, but private talks (caucuses) between you and the mediator (and your attorney, if you should so choose) may prove to be more productive. It’s your mediation, your proposals, your concessions and your final decision to agree on a settlement.
Peacemaker Mediation endeavors to make this difficult process as comfortable as possible.
