Divorce and Family Law Mediation

MediationMediation is a method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that has outstanding benefits for parties who are willing and able to work cooperatively in resolving their case. Attorney Huettner’s mediation practice offers such clients the following advantages:


It is a lower-cost alternative to expensive litigation
The parties retain a greater degree of control of the decision-making process
Emotional trauma is lessened considerably
The parties are able to concentrate upon the issues that matter most to them and plan for their own future post-divorce
The parties can maintain their dignity and respect for each other
Mediated matters can be resolved more quickly than litigated matters

Can matters other than divorce be mediated?
The answer is yes. Modifications, pre-nuptial agreements, child-custody and parenting matters can all be resolved through mediation.

Can I have my own attorney advise me in mediation ?
By all means. Attorney Huettner strongly urges all of her mediation clients to have counsel review their agreement and advise them individually in the process of mediation. This option, as all options in mediation, is the client’s decision.
