When we experience heightened emotions, I can get in the way of rational decision-making. To put it simply, when we are particularly emotional it impacts our judgment. In many circumstances this may not have significant consequences, but in the case of divorce it can have a lasting impact. Divorce mediation can be an invaluable tool when trying to avoid making a emotionally influenced decisions during divorce.

During divorce mediation, an impartial third party we’ll help you and your spouse navigate the complicated waters of divorce with as little emotional upset as possible.
