Mediation is one way for family members to resolve their own conflicts during and after divorce. At Alternative Strategies, mediation works because it is voluntary and self-directed.
Parties take control of their divorce process and settlement rather than simply resigning themselves to the uncertainty of litigation and trial. The parties, not a judge or jury, determine the ultimate structure of their divorce with the help of the mediator.
Even more, mediation works at Alternative Strategies because of the special skills of our mediators. Sympathetic yet impartial, we guide people to move beyond adversarial positions towards resolution.
Our goal is to create a comfortable, confidential environment for parties to identify issues, generate options and evaluate possible solutions. We pride ourselves on developing creative solutions that work for your specific family’s needs.
Given this positive framework, most couples that elect divorce mediation do reach a mutually satisfying agreement.
