Similar to collaborative law, mediation keeps you out of the courts system, and empowers you to resolve legal disputes without judges, magistrates or court personnel. Mediation is different from collaborative law in that instead of each party having an attorney, there is one individual that guides you though the process in a neutral manner and supports both of your through the decision-making process, while protecting your legal rights. Once mediation is complete, you will need an attorney to complete and formalize the final agreements. Wesley Clark and Peshkin’s Mediation services offer the benefits of expediting the separation and divorce proceedings while reducing the total cost.
Divorce is both an ending and a beginning. Mediation and collaborative law will both help you transition to the next stage of your life with less conflict and the best possible outcome for everyone involved.
