Family Law Mediation

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution conducted in a private, voluntary, and confidential manner. It is a sensible approach for resolving traumatic changes within the family setting, such as a separation, divorce, child custody matters, child support, spousal support and division of property and debts.

In York County, mediation with a certified family court mediator is required for parties in all family and civil law cases before a trial may be scheduled. Our Certified Family Law Mediator helps steer clients toward their own solutions and resolutions.

As a neutral third party, the mediator does not take a side in the case, but helps people discuss issues and explore ways to bridge differences.

Meetings take place in a private, comforting office setting with technological advances that help us navigate the issues visually to gain understanding and reach consensus. We work to find a peaceful means of addressing your specific concerns, while saving you the stress and money associated with a trial.

Unlike a trial, the mediation process is private and confidential. Documents filed in court cases are a matter of public record, which means they are available to anyone. That is not the case with anything that transpires during mediation.
