Forrest Collins offers a variety of divorce mediation services. Many people are familiar with traditional divorce mediation. Traditional divorce mediation consists of negotiations between divorcing spouses that is facilitated by a neutral third party who does not have any decision making authority.
Kitchen Table Mediation is a mediation service that allows parties to obtain assistance finalizing the details of the divorce agreement they have created themselves. This service assumes the clients have done most of the negotiating themselves and just need help "making it legal." Kitchen Table Mediation is probably the fastest, most economical way to obtain a divorce.
The mediation process begins by both parties meeting with the divorce mediator and agreeing to reach the best possible agreement for their family in a respectful and amicable way. The best agreement that can be reached is one that gets as much value as possible and meets the most interests of all participants.
The benefits of mediation will be different for everyone. But mediation will consistently seek to find the best possible outcome for all involved and pave the way for more clear communication going forward.
