What Is Mediation?
Mediation is a less-adversarial alternative to litigated divorce. As a certified mediator, Nicole acts as a neutral third-party who helps facilitate conversations between the two participants going through a separation. Mediation is a future-focused practice in which the two parties take ownership of the outcome the process. The participants are empowered to create their own solutions to the restructuring of their relationship in a safe and mutually-respectful environment.
Nicole's objectives as a mediator are as follows:
- Help determine and prioritize the interests of each participant
- Facilitate communication among the participants
- Eliminate barriers to the resolution of the issues
- Assist the participants in identifying and developing reasonable and mutually acceptable options for resolution
