What Happens During Divorce Mediation?

As a neutral third-parties, our mediators at Alternative Divorce Solutions will sit down with both you and your spouse to determine a mutually beneficial agreement.

Even if you would rather discuss a different topic than your spouse, perhaps about the home you share but your spouse wants to discuss child custody, we find a way to ensure both topics are addressed. The conversations are purely confidential, as opposed to traditional divorce litigation which becomes a matter of public record when filed with the court.

We make sure that we are transparent during the process. Not every topic or discussion will be easy, but we make sure that you understand not only the laws but your rights, so that you can make well-informed decisions.

What Issues Can Our Team Help Mediate?

Our team helps address all of the critical issues important to you, without having to involve the courts to achieve a successful divorce mediation. Our process is respectful, cost-effective, and streamlined.

During mediation, you and your spouse will resolve the same issues a judge would decide, including:

  • Alimony & Spousal Support
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Co-Parenting Support
  • Debt Division
  • High Net Worth Situations
  • Property Division
  • Same-Sex Dissolution
  • Summary Dissolution
  • Uncontested Dissolution

Why You Should Consider Mediation For Your Divorce

We understand this is an emotionally challenging time and that it is important to prioritize thoughtful planning and careful consideration. Failure to do so can result in hasty, reactionary decisions based in frustration, pride, or resentment–rather than what is best for the family as a whole. When this happens, couples may find themselves at the mercy of the state’s family court system.

“First and foremost, I found that I had a lot to learn about the divorce mediation process. I did not exactly know what the role of the mediator was or if we would still have to go to Court.”

– Donald B.

“I was so stressed out before I went to ADS. Once I got there Lani sat with me and my husband and explained the whole mediation process. After I left I knew exactly what to expect and ADS lived up to my expectations.”
