Divorce mediators work with you and your soon to be ex to help you decide your own divorce, what is best for both parties and if children are involved, can help decide what is best for your children. Mediation is the practice of meeting with a third party to receive an outside perspective in order to help you see the issues from an objective standpoint and better allows for more logical decisions to be made. When seeking a mediator, the two of you can end your marriage as amicably and cost effective as possible.
How does mediation work?
Mediators help work out agreements for issues such as distribution of property, child custody or visitation times, child support, retirement and taxes. Although some agreements can be hard to reach, mediators are trained to help couples no matter how difficult you think your divorce may be, and this is why many people seek help from a third party. Mediators jobs are to keep the line of communication open, bring suggestions to the table that may have not been considered before, make sure the couples are realistic with their expectations, keep each other empathetic despite possible hostility and allow each person to move forward with their life. Many times couples can get off topic and bring outside issues to the problem at hand at mediators will help keep you on track and make sure that each party maintains reason.

Mediators are flexible and Lesa understands the importance of confidentiality and is sure to never cross that line. When children are involved mediation is often far more complicated and that is why having a mediator to help negotiate the issues allows parents to work together successfully. When children are involved parents will continuously have to work together in the future. Lack of communication is often a common theme that inhibits couples to negotiate and when you need to have an ongoing relationship it is important to make sure that the line of communication stays open even after you two separate.
