As experienced Montgomery County, MD divorce mediators, we are in charge of hopefulness until our clients are ready to take over this task for themselves. It's a job we're well-qualified to perform because we get to see mediation successes on a daily basis.
Why choose divorce mediation?
You make the decisions.
You are the experts on your family, your hopes, and your concerns. We provide structure, information, and calm. We will help you make informed decisions, but we will not pressure you.
You will be fully heard.
You matter, and your ideas matter. We listen deeply and provide an environment where you can do your best thinking and communicate your ideas effectively.
Divorce mediation works.
Most divorcing couples who mediate with us resolve all essential topics. Research shows that people who mediate are more likely to be satisfied with their decisions and less likely to later challenge the decisions in court, as compared with people who litigate their divorces.
Decisions are informed.
We will guide you through the topics, provide information (including legal information) as appropriate, organize sharing of financial information and documents, and educate you on common options. We highlight your hopes and concerns, and help you problem-solve, so you can make lasting decisions with confidence. Other professionals can also assist the mediation if needed.
Your children deserve peaceful homes.
We want you to be able to look forward to family events, such as graduations, dance recitals, sporting events, and weddings, without awkwardness or anxiety. According to a 12-year research study, children and the co-parenting relationship benefit when divorcing parents mediate. More on research.
Our goal is an elegant solution, not compromise.
Mediation encourages creativity and solutions designed for your family’s specific needs. By contrast, courts are limited in the solutions they can provide.
You can save time and money.
Divorce mediation usually costs significantly less, and takes far less time, than litigation, attorney negotiation, or collaborative law. More on cost comparisons and minimizing costs.
Divorce Mediation Causes Less Emotional Wear-and-Tear.
Separation and divorce tends to be an emotionally exhausting experience. Mediation, with its focus on the future and on the real needs of each person, offers a gentler, more efficient way through this life transition.
