Divorce mediation is a process that allows you and your spouse to complete divorce negotiations with the assistance of a divorce mediator, rather than through the court system. A divorce mediator serves a neutral third party to assist with positive and productive discussion about issues such as division of property, child and spousal support, and even custody issues. Mediation is a conflict resolution process, so the overarching goal is to help you and your divorcing spouse find areas of compromise and a way forward without a bitter, adversarial court battle.

Why Try Divorce Mediation?
Lesa believes that trust and communication are essential to solving any problem. She works with couples all over the state to facilitate this trust, openness and clear communication, which most often leads to compromise and a positive way forward. The many benefits of divorce mediation also very often reduce the overall stress of the process. Mediation is significantly less expensive than the traditional court process, and mediation takes a fraction of the time of a court battle. Because you and your spouse are empowered to find solutions that work best for your family, very often mediation yields results that are more positive and actionable as well.
It is also important to note that mediation is entirely confidential and you are still able to use the assistance of attorneys, financial advisors or appraisers when necessary. Divorce mediation allows you to take control over your divorce, rather than putting the decisions in the hand of the court system, which can take months and understandably will have a more difficult time finding solutions that are best for your unique situation.
