Divorce is similar to the dissolution of a business partnership. As a couple, you acquired assets, accepted debts and made an investment in your future.

Mediation is a valuable tool for reaching equitable settlements in divorce. With the help of a trained facilitator, you and your spouse can make important decisions regarding child custody, visitation arrangements, child support amounts, spousal support payments and asset division.
