If you and your spouse haven’t agreed on all the issues, but believe you can resolve them at mediation, or if you’ve been ordered to attend mediation by the Court, then mediation is an effective way to resolve your issues and finalize your case quickly without the added costs of litigation.
One of our attorneys will prepare you for and accompany you to a Mediation Conference with an independent, third party mediator to resolve issues specific to you and your family. Our attorneys will help you evaluate your options and craft an enforceable Marital Settlement Agreement, Parenting Plan and Child Support Guidelines (if there are children) that will protect you and your family.
|Mediation Services Include:|
Price $1250 – Payment plans available
Our 2-pay payment plan makes it easier on your budget.
With or without minor children (under 18).
Mediation can be helpful to settle issues even if you do not have minor children. If you do have minor children, mediation can also be beneficial to construct a parenting plan.
We provide legal advice and prepare you for Mediation.
Prior to mediation, you will meet with the attorney to review your case and get you ready for mediation. The attorney will work with you so you feel comfortable going into mediation.
We provide a financial affidavit for you to complete.
Each party has to fill out a financial affidavit before going to mediation. We will review the form with you before and after you fill it out to make sure the information is accurate.
We provide a Mandatory Disclosure list.
Certain financial documents have to be exchanged before mediation. We will review the list with you and before you provide it to your spouse and ensure that all the documents are being provided.
We will coordinate a Mediation Conference.
The parties will choose a mediator and the location. Depending on your situation, there are several mediators we use on a regular basis. The mediation may be at our office, the mediator’s office or at the other attorney’s office.
Our attorney will attend a Mediation for up to 3 hours with you.
The attorney will be with you during the mediation. For purposes of this plan and the amount of preparation prior to mediation, we can only commit to 3 hours. If the mediation takes longer, there will be an additional fee.
If successful, you will receive an enforceable Marital Settlement Agreement, Parenting Plan and Child Support Guidelines
If mediation goes well, you will leave with a full settlement agreement and parenting plan. If we only settle certain issues, we can always enter into a partial agreement. The goal is to settle as many issues as possible.
We provide free Notary Services.
If any documents need to be notarized, the cost is included in this package.

What Our Clients are Saying:
After working with the Affordable Divorce Center, I can say it was one very satisfying experience. It's difficult enough to be in a situation of having to hire an attorney when going through a divorce and wonder if it's a good match or not. My experience from the very beginning was nothing but exceptional. Everyone is helpful and compassionate. Phone calls and emails are answered quickly and very precise.
I truly did not think I could afford an attorney. Originally, I filed all of my divorce documents myself. My "simple" divorce quickly became complicated . I wish I had done everything through this firm to begin with. They were fantastic and empathized with my situation. They worked with me at every step. I'm so grateful.
Best Place to go for any type of issues you need taken care of. They are on top of things and take care of most of the work so you don't need to worry about things going wrong. Best of the best in my opinion, would recommend to anyone who needs great lawyers to help them out.
These guys are the best. They kept me informed every step of the way. The most important thing for me was my children. They were able to get an agreement that focused on that and insured I got the support I needed.
I highly recommend the Affordable Divorce Center. Shawn and Wendy handled my case professionally, with care, and in the end I received the results that I wanted. My questions were always answered and I felt comfortable working with them throughout this process. Divorce isn’t easy, but they made it easier, both financially and emotionally. Thank you!
Mediation is a process whereby the parties and their attorneys meet with an independent, third party mediator to try to settle some or all of the issues in their case. This is an efficient way to save attorney’s fees and costs and avoid the expense of a trial.
No, you are not required to have an attorney present, however, if you have questions as to what your rights, obligations or entitlements are, or you need to know if the options offered to you are reasonable and enforceable by law, it’s advised to have an attorney present with you.
If you’ve agreed on all the issues then you don’t have to go to mediation, but if there are any issues that haven’t been resolved, then yes, the Court will require you to attend Mediation.
Prior to your case even being filed, you can schedule and attend a Pre-suit Mediation Conference in an effort to resolve as many disputes as possible, thereby avoiding lengthy and costly litigation.
The parties are in separate rooms with their attorneys and the mediator will convey offers and counteroffers between the parties.
The fee is set by the Mediator and is split between the parties and is payable at the time of Mediation. In some cases, we may be able to get the mediation fee waived.
Generally it’s a minimum of two hours and can last longer if you are unable to come to agreement on all the issues.
For the most part, yes. The agreement can be drafted and signed by the parties at the mediation. The hard part will be over, but you may still be required to appear before the Judge to approve the agreement and finalize your case.
