You are able to communicate with your spouse independently without fear.

When choosing a financial mediator, be sure you are working with a lawyer mediator. The primary advantage of using a lawyer /mediator (particularly an experienced family law mediator) is that they know and understand the legal issues that provide reference points for settlement purposes.
The parties to a mediation are not restricted by what a court may likely do. Understanding the law provides helps everyone make fully informed decisions for what's best for you and your family.
Please note , your lawyer mediator can provide legal information but not advice.
No two family situations are alike. It depends. We encourage you to take whatever time you need to create a fair and durable settlement.
The more complicated your finances, the more time it may take. There is no benefit in cutting corners when you are negotiating an agreement that has to last.
It depends. Once you have a draft of your separation agreement, we recommend that you consult with a lawyer. Mediators cannot give legal advice even though they are guiding you through the legal landscape.
Most clients are not accompanied by lawyers, but some people feel more comfortable making decisions after receiving legal advice or guidance.
Because everyone's situation is unique, please contact Marion or Eva to discuss.
