The common goals of family law mediation include:
- Assisting parties in maintaining a smooth transition throughout the marital separation process,
- Assisting clients in overcoming the emotional and legal obstacles they may encounter during divorce, including those involving child custody, visitation, division of assets, support payments, relocation and devising an appropriate parenting plan,
- Improving the family structure and dynamics through appropriate communication, and
- Serving as a neutral third-party between the parties and the legal system by preparing and filing all necessary judicial paperwork.
