Reduce the Financial and Emotional Costs of Divorce

Divorce and change are stressful. The involvement of an attorney often escalates the stress rather than diffuses it. Often, once one party involves an attorney, the other party feels as though an attorney is necessary, even if unaffordable. Those faced with advocating for themselves rather than hiring an attorney sometimes feel at a disadvantage. You can avoid the financial and emotional toll that the legal system triggers by choosing mediation instead. At Hart to Heart Mediation services, I offer conflict coaching as well as the service of mediation. I am truly committed to helping disputing parties resolve their differences so they can move on with their lives.

Mediation: A Better Way

Mediation offers an opportunity to resolve your family matters without the high cost and emotional toll of a high conflict divorce. Mediation is an opportunity for both parties to reach an agreement without the interference of people that do not understand your unique and complicated family. Mediation is mandatory in Washington state for family matters brought before the court because the courts prefer that you make decisions about the future of your family. Effective mediation allows your family to move forward on a course determined by you. Even if opposing parties do not come to agreement, good-faith attempts at mediation fulfill the court requirement.
