What is a divorce mediator?

A divorce mediator is a neutral party who does not represent either person in a divorce.

A divorce mediator can help you and your spouse reach an agreement on all divorce-related issues such as child support, parenting plans, dividing property and spousal support.

Divorce mediation usually works best when both parties generally agree on how they want to resolve the various issues and are generally on amicable terms.

At Barkus law we provide a service that includes both mediation time to discuss and work out the details of your divorce i.e. financial, support child custody, as well as the preparation of all divorce-related documents you will need to file with the court.

Although she is a family law attorney, in her role as a mediator, Lori Barkus cannot file paperwork on your behalf, nor can she provide you with legal advice. However, she can prepare all of the documents for you and give you detailed step-by-step instructions about how to file your paperwork.

Should you have legal questions or require that paperwork filed on your behalf, you should speak with a qualified attorney about your rights and obligations before and even during the mediation process.

Mediation is a low-cost and less stressful way to “untie the knot.” Sustainable Family Solutions offers a flat fee for the mediation process and an additional fee for preparing the documents you need to file with the court. Please call us for details.
