Mediation Services

We Assist You With Your Divorce and Family Needs Through Mediation

The Law Office of Ellen S. Kief assists you with your Divorce and Family needs through Mediation Services. Divorce Mediation is a voluntary, non-adversarial, resolution option available to divorcing, divorced or unmarried partners who are in a dispute that requires a legal resolution. Through a structured process the parties are helped to reach a self-determined and reasonable agreement by a trained neutral third party.

The Mediation process is a problem solving process designed to identify issues and reach agreements. As such, it is a relatively short-term process in which parties experience the benefit of their work together almost from the onset.

In divorce mediation, as a neutral facilitator we will help the parties discuss their needs and wants. The goal is to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. Mediation requires a neutral mediator, reasonable parties' and good faith negotiation.

The ultimate purpose of the mediation is to resolve the marital, financial and/or child-related disputes related to a divorce. Divorce mediation is not the same as marriage counseling. However, the process of mediation can also provide great benefits for both parties.

Even if you can not resolve everything through mediation, you can limit what is left for the courts to decide. The process is completely confidential.

The Law Office of Ellen S. Kief offers Mediation Services in Divorce Resolution, Family Matters, Landlord Tenant disputes and other areas of dispute where resolution of the matter is your option.

We stay focused on your case every step of the way.
