In litigation, although the parties must live with the results and no one is more personally affected by the process or outcome than the parties, the parties can often feel like minor characters in their own play.
The representing attorneys, the mandates of the contested process, the judge, and the settlement panel – all become involved and all have control that once belonged to the parties.
In mediation, you are in charge.
By engaging proactively in your divorce, clients increase their sense of control and power, thereby heightening your sense of self and well being.
The mediator offers guidance, support and information. The clients make the ultimate decisions.
