Idaho Divorce Mediation Services

Mediation is a valuable and empowering conflict resolution process in which a neutral mediator helps individuals settle disputes in a respectful, non-adversarial environment. A divorce mediator empowers the parties on both sides of the conflict to find agreeable solutions by helping to reduce misunderstandings, clarify priorities, and explore areas of compromise.
By opening clear lines of communication and fostering mutual respect, mediation services help all parties move past their conflict and begin to move forward. For many couples, mediation is a great alternative to divorce litigation. It is beneficial to those who need or want to continue having a relationship, especially when children are involved.
Whether required by the court or agreed upon by both parties in the early stages of the divorce process, a mediator will help both parties create a mediated agreement, which will serve as either a partial or complete settlement in the case. A mediator drafts appropriate documents, such as a Memorandum of Understanding which outlines any decisions or actions agreed to by all parties. These documents are then signed and become legally binding, just like any other traditional contract.
