Another method to resolve dissolution of marriage issues is by the use of a mediator. While working as a mediator I do my best to provide a safe environment in which each party has the opportunity to express their position, needs, opinions and desires. If you are represented by an attorney, s/he may participate in the mediation.
As a mediator, I am a neutral third party who can and will identify potential legal, financial and tax issues. However, even though I am an attorney, when functioning as a mediator I cannot offer legal advice to either party. As your mediator, I would use my legal knowledge to identify legal and financial issues and encourage both parties to obtain advice from another source so that decisions can be made from an informed position.
The outcome of the mediation is up to the participating parties. A mediator makes no decisions on the issues, but supports both parties to make decisions for themselves. I can assist you in:
