Since 1983, the Center has worked with thousands of families and couples going through the divorce process. Our mediations and trainings are the culmination of our experience and our approach to the field of divorce mediation. Separation and divorce are among the most painful and disruptive events that an individual and family can experience. The problems are both financial and emotional, deeply touching all members of the family. Mediation aims at reducing this tension, not increasing it. With the help of the mediator, couples negotiate their own settlement and learn the techniques for resolving future differences. Mediation is for couples who want to retain control over the decisions that affect their lives and don't want their children caught in the middle. Mediation is not just for couples who already know how to cooperate. Mediators show people how to work together productively in spite of their anger. During mediation other professional services are sometimes needed. The Center maintains a wide network of consultants including accountants, lawyers, financial planners, career counselors, psychotherapists and child psychologists.
