Divorce and family law mediation involves parties in a family law dispute retaining a neutral & trained mediator to serve as a facilitator to assist them in reaching a settlement of their disputes in a safe and amicable setting. Parties (divorcing couples and others) meet together with the mediator, often on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. During mediation sessions, the parties negotiate directly with one another in the presence of the mediator who facilitates the discussions and negotiations, without imposing his/her opinions on the parties or advocating for either. The divorce mediator keeps the parties focused on the issues being discussed and makes sure they address all the issues which require resolution in their divorce or other family law dispute. Experts or other professionals may be involved in mediation, such as forensic accountants, real estate appraisers, psychologists who serve as custody and parenting-time experts, or others as are necessary and appropriate. The mediators at BorgerMatez allow attorneys to participate in mediation sessions. Inappropriate situations, a coach may also be involved outside the mediation sessions to assist the parties as they navigate through the emotional turmoil and devastation of divorce or other family law disputes.
