What is Divorce Mediation?

Mediation is a cost-conscious, private, high integrity alternative to a litigated divorce. When couples choose to mediate their divorce, they not only avoid the costly and slow moving court system, they have the opportunity to negotiate a divorce settlement that is customized to their circumstances. They stay in control of their family plan.

Couples experience such a deep sense of accomplishment andtypically greater empathy for one another when they come to the table and work through what could have been barriers to settlement. If you and your spouse are looking for a conflict-managed way to end your marriage, mediation with Laura McGee will literally save you thousands of dollars in legal fees and accelerate you through your divorce process.

?Laura will ensure you are each fully prepared before you begin your mediation so no time is wasted. Together you will set an agenda, strengthen and confirm areas of agreement, and mediate those issues that still need resolution or fine tuning. Laura fills out the required divorce paperwork and drafts your Marital Settlement Agreement as part of your divorce mediation process. You will never have to appear in court.
