Starting - Mediation Rules and Procedures

This Step provides a time and cost saving roadmap and respectful boundaries for the mediation.

Step 3

Getting Current

This Step brings our Mediator up to speed about your situation and also sets the table for having all of the information and documents needed later on in the mediation process for you and your spouse to make fully informed decisions and resolve all matters quickly and inexpensively. You and your spouse disclose any matters about which you already agree or don’t agree, share your individual concerns if not worries or fears, and state your goals for the mediation. Our Mediator asks questions about your individual educational and career backgrounds, incomes, finances, and health condition. Our Mediator also requests you and your spouse provide information and documents relevant to your situation.

Step 4


This Step gives you and your spouse a safe and supportive space to work with our Mediator to successfully mediate all issues involved in your matter, including how your property will be divided, your debts allocated, and any co-parenting, child support, and spousal maintenance matters. Most mediations without minor children typically take 3-5 hours to complete, while those with minor children typically take 5-7 hours.

With his extensive background in law, business, and psychology, and his extraordinary expertise in mediation, our Mediator will help both you and your spouse communicate and negotiate effectively, offer various options and alternatives for resolving disagreements, and provide legal, financial, tax, and other relevant information – all directed towards one central goal: to ensure that you and your spouse make fully informed decisions about each and every matter involved in your situation.
