What is Divorce Mediation?

More than 40% of American marriages end in divorce, at a whopping average cost of $20,000 to $50,000 per couple in legal fees. There is a much less expensive way to dissolve a marriage – a mediated divorce.

In a mediated divorce, the divorcing couple, with the assistance of a mediator, make all the important decisions regarding the end of their marriage: finances, children, pensions and the rest. Ending a marriage is hard enough on a family, so why ruin everyone’s financial future too? If you are considering divorce, divorce mediation may be a great alternative for you.

Jerry Fabiano has helped dozens of couples to obtain less stressful, cost-effective and amicable divorces through the process of mediation.
