Virginia Beach Divorce Mediation
Legal services in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk
Mediation is an alternate dispute resolution process that can be used to resolve family law disputes and dissolve marriages effectively and peacefully. Because of its nature, divorce mediation is usually less stressful, less costly, and far less damaging to relationships than traditional divorce.
In mediation, the spouses work to resolve issues by consulting a neutral party, called the mediator. The mediator acts as a facilitator to the divorce. While the mediator cannot give legal advice to either party and cannot be the personal attorney for either party, the mediator serves a valuable role in providing information to both spouse and in making sure that the spouses understand what their decisions do.
