Traditionally, the word “divorce” invoked feelings of dread, eliciting mental images of contentious legal battles, name-calling, animosity, and an “I win, you lose” approach to the outcome. Fortunately, divorce is no longer a zero-sum game. In fact, the days where court room sparring, allegations, and alliances were the only route to resolution have been replaced by a field of options, subsumed within the category of “Alternative Dispute Resolution.”
Mediation is among these alternative avenues, providing a diverse set of divorcing couples with a peaceful, private, time-efficient, and cost-effective solution for resolving divorce and family law matters. In the mediation process, the possibilities are endless, limited only by each party's imagination and willingness to compromise.
