Co Mediation Services
Here’s how co mediation is helping divorcing couples
In the event that the divorcing parties have children, our goal is to make it easier for them to be the best parents they can be for the children’s sake. Divorce mediation is commonly the most efficient and cost-effective method for resolving disputes between parties undergoing divorce. When divorcing parties find out how to solve problems and handle their finances, and come together to make agreements, these people are more invested in the process, so those decisions will survive for the future.
Here are some of the advantages of co mediation
– Each co mediator brings different perspectives to the table
– When two co mediators work together they model effective communication
– There are two co mediators to listen, brainstorm, and problem solve
– Makes the divorce mediation services process more efficient and focused
