WHAT IS MEDIATION?

Mediation is a voluntary process in which all parties participate in good faith. The process is typically more expedient than going to court and gives spouses more control over the process and results.



WHY CHOOSE BRENDA CHRISTEN MEDIATION AND JESSICA BRAUDE MEDIATION AND PARENTING COORDINATION?

When couples make a long-term commitment such as marriage, our mediators can assist with negotiating marriage contracts and prenuptial or cohabitation agreements. This process can relieve stress and provide clear understanding about the consequences of entering into such a union.

When couples are separating, our mediators can alleviate the strain, expense and animosity that often arises during a court proceeding. In voluntary mediation, couples work toward a consensual agreement that achieves the right results for all parties on issues such as asset division, child and spousal support and parenting plans. The types of issue resolution we assist in are wide and varied.

In the event that parties are not able to reach a consensual agreement they can choose to participate in a private arbitration process. This is a private dispute resolution process that allows the parties to finalize matters without the need to then proceed to court. The arbitrator can work with the parties and their counsel to implement a process designed to bring closure to their disputes.

BENEFITS

Mediation is cost effective because you may avoid an extended court proceeding.

You maintain influence over the final agreement far more than in a court proceeding or arbitration where the resolution is imposed upon you.

Mediators give you the time and attention you need as they are unconstrained by the limitations of the court system.

A family law mediator will help you identify key concerns and find common ground.

The draft final agreement is reviewed by your lawyer to ensure your rights have been protected and the resolution is suitable for you. The mediator does not provide you with legal advice. Unlike collaborative law, if you decide to go to court, you may retain the same lawyer.
