The Benefits of Mediation With Regards to Children
Children are a first priority when it comes to separation or divorce, and so it is important for both parents to communicate clearly and to work together to resolve their issues. The process of mediation is an excellent tool to help partners put their energy into solving problems rather than creating more.
We use mediation for:
- spousal support
- custody and guardianship
- division of property
- understanding assets and liabilities
- child support

The mediation process facilitates the resolution of issues surround separation and divorce because it eliminates all irrelevant factors and focuses on the issues at hand.
