Is Mediation Right For You? Let’s Talk!

The average cost of a contested divorce in the United States (not involving custody) is $15,000, with an average litigation time of 2 years. Cases involving child custody or complex property distribution can take 20%-50% longer and cost thousands more. In contrast, divorce mediation costs thousands of dollars less, takes far less time, and offers the opportunity to explore creative options, structure more mutually beneficial agreements, clear out unnecessary animosity, and build stronger, more realistic long-term solutions.

Whether you’re considering a legal separation or divorce, or need help with child custody mediation or visitation issues, we can help.
