Divorce Mediation: A Balanced Approach to Resolving Differences

Divorce battles can have a devastating affect on the lives of the entire family-the separating parents, the children, not to mention a family's financial resources. If you are interested in an alternative process that reduces the needless expense of litigation and minimizes the emotional distress on your family, then you and your spouse should consider mediation.

Family mediation is a problem-solving process that gives couples intending to end a marriage the opportunity to reach a legal settlement. It also provides a means for adult siblings to mediate problems pertaining to the care of aging parents and settle estate differences in a way that preserves their relationships. By reducing the adversarial nature of the process, mediation facilitates communication and promotes understanding.

Helping Families Reach Agreement

As a Washington mediator based in Kirkland, my role is as impartial facilitator with the goal of helping all parties reach the fairest possible agreement. The strength of mediation is that the two parties come together in an open process to forge a mutually acceptable agreement. It requires each to recognize and accommodate each other's needs-often without having to compromise his or her own. I help families reach agreements and draft the documents, providing services in the following areas:

  • Divorce and legal separation
  • Custody
  • Parenting plans
  • Pre-marital agreements
  • Child support matters
  • Adolescent-Parent disputes
  • Probate and estate disputes
  • Elder care and guardianships
  • Post-divorce enforcement
  • Arbitration
  • Child specialist

Elder Care Planning Advice And Mediation

Families with an elderly parent or relative are frequently torn as to how to best support and honor the person they love as he or she grows incapacitated. As a family therapist, coupled with my legal knowledge as an attorney, I can assist families in developing a practicable and workable plan for providing care for a loved one. The best plans do not put the burden on a single family member, but use family, community and government resources to assure consistent quality of care, while involving the elder or disabled family member in the process, when possible.
