Marital separation and divorce often entail major transitions. Usually everyone loses when these have to be worked out through the conventional legal process. Mediation offers a way to “put the courts out of business” on the practical details of these transitions.

At Family Mediation of Greater Washington, we understand the emotional and financial challenges that arise when two people separate their lives, their property, and their finances. We also understand the impact on children when their parents live separately.

The mediator is a neutral third party, but also one who has substantial experience with family law practice and mediation. In conducting a mediation, we strive to be creative in helping our clients find solutions that are legally appropriate, but are also attuned to their own needs and goals and the best interests of their children.

Mediation is a process that usually makes sense for separating or divorcing spouses who want to achieve a fair and workable settlement. It is not always an easy process, because divorce isn’t easy. But the alternatives to mediation – adversarial negotiations and/or court hearings – are usually worse, and sometimes far more expensive and stressful. As a mediator, my goal is to work myself out of a job. This I do by helping you reach a fair, sensible agreement. Then I can draft the resulting agreement for you, in readable English, and we can fine-tune it and get it signed.
