Mediation is about self-determination. The goal is for you and your spouse to stay in control of the outcome of your divorce — you two are the ultimate decision makers, not a Judge. As your mediator, Jayne assists you and your spouse with communication. She can direct the conversations to be productive and on point. If you and your spouse get stuck on any one issue Jayne can help you generate new or different options. Agreements, are written up by Jayne. She can prepare all the paperwork necessary for you to complete your own uncontested divorce.
Mediation does not require you to each have an attorney, but if you have one, or want one they are welcome to participate. It is highly recommended that each spouse obtain individualized legal advice before the mediation begins. If you need a list of attorneys with whom to consult, Jayne can provide you each with such a list. Mediation is a highly effective way to get divorced without destroying relationships and spending all your money and/or wealth. It is often described as “fair and friendly.” Mediation is cost effective, and in most cases pretty quick. If you have questions about this process, call Jayne.
