Spouses attend the free consultation together. Attending together helps wives and husbands decide whether a mediation divorce is right for them, and whether Dann Johns is the right mediator.
An entire mediation divorce that includes discussing and deciding terms, signing Pennsylvania legal documents, and getting a Pennsylvania divorce decree can be completed in my office. Spouses can divorce without setting foot in court.
Spouses often are pleased about how peaceful and productive discussions can be in divorce mediation. About 9 in 10 divorcing couples who work with Dann Johns reach an out-of-court agreement to divorce. In Pennsylvania, spouses who reach agreement in mediation can divorce without setting foot in court.
Attending a free consultation is the best way to prepare for divorce mediation. During the consultation, Dann Johns helps spouses to have a calm, open, and productive discussion. Wives and husbands can personally experience how mediation would work for them.
