Divorce mediation is a structured, private, voluntary process for handling your divorce. The parties involved meet with trained and impartial mediators to resolve their case.
At Breaking Free Mediation, not only are the parties are the decision makers, they also have the option to be guided through the process in a mindful way. Mediators have no power to decide the outcome, but rather facilitate conversation so that the parties can communicate effectively and efficiently to be able to reach their own agreements on issues of the parenting plan, child support, spousal support, and the division of all property/assets/debts.
When you chose us for your divorce mediation, we guide you through the process, thereby removing the fear, doubt and worry about the unknown. Divorce mediation is a peaceful and affordable alternative to the traditional model of litigation. With the high cost of living here in Los Angeles, Chicago, Greenwich or Naples, this process is a very prudent choice.
