Are you still wondering what mediation is? You aren’t alone, it is the best kept secret for couples and families in crisis.
It’s a process where you actively participate in making decisions that affect you. Sound good?
Well it gets better! It’s a voluntary process that has a huge success rate and is cheaper than the traditional methods of resolving conflict through lawyers or the court system.
Whether it is a parenting plan during separation or post divorce, a communication & action plan during family conflict or a caregiving plan, mediation keeps the power of decision making with you and your family.
Here’s another benefit to you. I personally know the stress of family conflict, divorce and being a caregiver. Often having someone on the outside who doesn’t have the emotional attachment to your family’s stress can add real value and help you make decisions more effectively.
