The Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is an informal dispute resolution process. Traditional court litigation requires a level of formality that can burden a divorcing couple with great expense and delay, and a trial can often become highly adversarial and combative. Mediation can significantly lower the costs of obtaining a divorce or resolving a child custody or visitation dispute. Divorce mediation can allow you and your spouse to maintain a good, working relationship long after an amicable divorce agreement is reached.

With a certification in mediation and membership in Maryland Program for Mediator Excellence (MPME), Attorney Colbert has built a solid reputation for divorcing couples, and she has achieved high settlement rates. Her ability to identify shared interests and secure agreements can help successfully mediate your divorce or assist you with visitation and custody dispute resolution.

Certified Mediator: Resolving Divorce as Amicably as Possible

In Maryland, the process of divorce can start and end with mediation. Parties to divorce mediation must agree to prepare all of the necessary documents for a divorce and are called upon to resolve their differences without the need for a judge or trial. If an amicable divorce agreement or custody dispute resolution can be reached, a divorce can be settled without added delay and expense. Since a lengthier and less friendly divorce process would often yield the same or similar results, both sides and the children can win with divorce mediation.
