Using Divorce Mediation as a First Step

The Center for Divorce Solutions has one goal: Creating an atmosphere where couples who’ve reached the end of the line can work out a kinder, gentler divorce. By reducing the anxiety, disruption, and cost of divorce, we help the parties more effectively communicate their needs directly to each other and arrive at an agreement that meets all their needs — and, if we’re all lucky, a few of their wants.
