Children should not be at the mediation sessions with the parents, however, children can be involved in various stages of the process for either mediation and/or counseling. Remember they are the victims of the separation and divorce and allowing them to have a voice in the process can make a huge difference in their lives because they usually feel most things are out of their control.
Each session generally runs for an hour and a half and on average the entire process takes between 4 to 6 sessions.
We offer a free phone consultation to help you determine if mediation is right for you. Contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation.
You always have the option of using a mediator during the process. However, because of the adversarial nature of divorce attorneys, it is possible for them to easily undo all the work completed during mediation. We do recommend that you use independent counsel, or we can provide one for you at the end of the process to review the agreement before signing.
