Divorce Peacefully

A peaceful divorce is possible! In Pennsylvania, spouses may choose divorce mediation to:

  1. calmly discuss and decide terms of divorce,
  2. divorce without setting foot in court,
  3. keep costs of divorce as low as possible.

In my office, about 9 in 10 couples who try divorce mediation reach an out-of-court agreement to divorce.

Divorce mediation for a peaceful divorce

Most spouses I work with want a peaceful divorce. They want to divorce by agreement, without the drama and expense of fighting in court. If parents, they want to provide each child with a peaceful, low conflict childhood.

Working together we can make your mediation divorce as peaceful as possible. As your divorce mediator I will:

  • help you and your spouse calmly discuss and decide all important divorce topics;
  • work in an impartial manner—never picking sides or favoring one spouse over the other;
  • treat you and your spouse with kindness.

  • I assist with filing for a Pennsylvania no-fault divorce decree, when both spouses are ready to officially change their marital status.
