There are three ways of dealing with difference: domination, compromise, and integration.  By domination, only one side gets what it wants; by compromise, neither side gets what it wants; by integration we find a way by which both sides may get what they wish.

It’s no surprise that more than half of all marriages end in divorce.  More surprising is the cost of these divorces – with legal fees averaging $20,000 to $50,000 per couple.  Add in the anger, hatred, and bitterness, and the stage is set for long-term financial and emotional recovery.  Fortunately, marriages can be dissolved in a respectful and dignified manner through mediation.  Typical average cost: $1,000 to $2,000.  This enormous saving frees up funds that may be used for more productive purposes like home purchases and college educations. 

 

Unlike the typical court litigated divorce, mediation is non-adversarial, enabling couples to forge future relationships that offer more courtesy and respect.  This is particularly important if the divorcing couple will be raising children in separate homes.  Additionally, mediated agreements tend to last longer than court awards as it is the couple who decides what they want and not a judge.

 

At Carolina Divorce Mediators, we will effectively facilitate you and your spouse’s discussion in the division of your marital assets and, if you have children, the authoring of a comprehensive parenting agreement.  Highly trained in conflict resolution, we will help you sift through the emotions that might prevent agreement and help you focus on your interests so you may achieve your goals and plan for your and your children's future.   We will not make decisions or impose settlements, but act as neutrals to help you move forward to “where we want to go” and away from “where we’ve been.”

Statistically, fifty percent of couples who originally went to court are back within a year seeking a modification to a court imposed judgment or on a contempt charge for not complying with an order.  Participants in a mediated case are far less likely to go to court to change an agreement because they negotiated it themselves in the first place.           

Our process helps you build agreements that work and endure.

 

 

 

 

"But don't I need

 a divorce lawyer or a mediator who is a lawyer?"

 

Maybe....but most likely not.  In reality, many mediators who happen to be attorneys find it difficult to wear two hats.  Our experienced mediators are not faced with this dilemma.

 

It is important to understand that all decisions you make in mediation are not binding until you have a separate separation agreement drafted and you have signed that agreement.  You are always given the opportunity to consult your legal or financial advisor to review your proposed decisions prior to making them final and binding.
