Choosing the Right Divorce Mediator

Choosing a MediatorChoosing the Right Divorce Mediator

Divorce can be a complicated, time-consuming, and expensive process, especially if you go through the court system. For this reason, many divorcing couples choose mediation instead. However, not all divorce mediators are the same. In fact, for many couples, a traditional mediator is not the best choice at all. At Fairway Divorce Solutions, we offer a skilled team of resolution experts that can help you negotiate your divorce agreement at minimal cost in both money and time.

Traditional Divorce Mediation

Traditional divorce mediation puts the divorce process into a one size fits all box. A trained mediator will sit down with you and your spouse to provide a neutral third-party perspective on all aspects of your divorce. While this can work for some couples, especially those who are still willing and able to communicate and work together, it can be nearly impossible for couples who are battling to find common ground. Even among couples whose divorce is less acrimonious, hammering out a divorce agreement can be tough.

The Fairway Difference

At Fairway Divorce Solutions, our team of resolution experts comes from many diverse backgrounds, and they share a large basket of skills that can all be used to look at your divorce agreement from different perspectives. While our experts do use some techniques that are drawn from traditional mediation, they also draw from a variety of other dispute resolution techniques. Many have been professional negotiators in different industries, and all bring their own unique experiences to the table.

Step by Step Divorce ProcessIn addition, we follow a proven, research-based step by step process. While a traditional mediator will simply facilitate dialogue between you and your soon to be ex, our resolution experts actively walk you through each aspect of your divorce agreement. All of our experts have a very high EQ (emotional intelligence). In combination with our step by step process, this allows them to help even the most contentious couples find points of common ground and build on those to successfully reach an equitable divorce agreement.

Our process may take a bit of time, depending on the complexity of your divorce and the nature of your relationship. At the end, though, you will have a fair and equitable divorce agreement that can be filed with the courts, at only a fraction of the cost of going through the full court process. Our in-house lawyers can even draft and file your agreement for you.

Choosing the right divorce mediator can feel overwhelming, especially if your divorce is difficult. With Fairway Divorce Solutions, though, you can rest assured that you have an entire team on your side, ready to walk you through the entire process using a variety of proven techniques. No matter how acrimonious your relationship is, our resolution process can bring you to an agreement that is satisfactory for both sides.
