Family Mediation is an excellent option for families who are looking for a low conflict separation. Mediation is an efficient way of reaching an agreement and typically leaves parties more satisfied than if their matter was dealt with using litigation. During mediation, the parties and their lawyers meet with a mediator to come to an agreement that works for everyone. The mediator is a neutral party who supports each person so they can be heard. Typically after mediation, a separation agreement is drafted using the terms agreed upon.
