Mediation is way for a couple to resolve their divorce without going to court. In mediation, a Cromwell Law attorney meets with you and your spouse together (as a neutral mediator) and helps you and your spouse come to a mutually agreeable solution. The mediator’s role is not to make decisions, but to help you and your spouse communicate, identify your interests and goals, and to brainstorm options to come to a mutually agreed upon divorce settlement. Our firm’s attorneys use a type of mediation called facilitative mediation. Facilitative mediation focuses on meeting the interests of you and your spouse to create a sustainable agreement. Decisions cannot be imposed on either party and resolution does not happen until both parties agree on a solution. With rare exceptions, all mediations take place face-to-face in one room, which enables both parties to “hear” each other and express themselves clearly.
Mediation is future-focused. It centers around solving problems, not imposing legal rules. Cromwell Law attorneys guide you and your spouse through the divorce process and help you craft a sustainable divorce document, without the additional heartache of going to court.
