Lesa Koski is an experienced divorce mediator who works with her clients to find peace during the divorce process. Her ultimate goal is to help you navigate the process in a way that empowers you to move forward with your life in a healthy way, with as little pain, resentment and bitterness as possible. The mediation process itself helps achieve the goal because it emphasizes openness, trust, cooperation and compromise. On the other hand, a court battle puts more emphasis on winning at all costs. As a result, litigation can cause you significantly more stress, have more of a financial impact and can take much longer than mediation.
Benefits of Mediation
Divorce mediation gives you and your soon to be ex-spouse the power to make decisions about your future in a way that makes sense to you and that is best for your family. If you share children, this is extremely important. After all, you know your family dynamic best and you know how your children will respond to change. You and your ex can make important decisions about division of property, child custody and child/spousal support without leaving these decisions to a judge. Divorce mediation allows you to come up with creative solutions that fit your unique situation.
Mediation is also confidential, so you do not have to share the personal and painful details about your marriage in a courtroom. What you share in your mediation session cannot be shared in court and your mediator cannot be used as a witness, should your case eventually go to court. So, you can feel free to be open and honest in mediation in a way that can actually facilitate a workable solution for all involved. Mediation also lays a strong foundation for your relationship after your divorce. If you share children, you and your spouse will continue to work together long after your divorce is final. Your children will benefit greatly if you and your ex can work together to solve problems as co-parents.
