Mediation is a more efficient option and a less combative way to reach an agreeable divorce, support or custody settlement.Print to PDF
Litigation can take an enormous toll, financially and emotionally. Mediation is an efficient, amicable and expeditious alternative that couples seeking a divorce often pursue.
At the conclusion of the mediation process, if wanted, the mediator will prepare a summary of the decisions reached. If the summary is to become a legally binding agreement, an attorney must draft a formal agreement. A mediator does not make decisions for the couple and does not provide legal advice or representation.
Obermayer’s experienced mediators are family law attorneys who know the difficulties and issues in a divorce or separation.

We have experience, training, and high ethical standards that help serve our clients, empowering clients to reach agreements and solutions and providing a safe space for negotiations and results.
Each mediation matter gets our personal attention. We understand that our clients are going through extremely difficult times in their lives and we make every effort to alleviate the stress and tension. We work through cases issue by issue and ensure that our clients’ concerns are addressed every step of the way. We strive to keep fees reasonable for everyone and facilitate resolutions that are tailored for each couple.
We provide couples seeking a divorce or separation with a voluntary mediation process that gives couples the opportunity to work together to develop a mutually agreeable resolution. Mediation is a process in which each party defines their priorities and works together to achieve amicable agreements, a process that allows the parties to decide what should happen to their family and to their finances after separation or divorce.
The primary benefit of mediation is that the parties control the shape and terms of their agreement. Mediation can address and resolve equitable distribution (division of assets), alimony, child support and spousal support, custody, and visitation schedules.
Couples getting divorced or separated have the opportunity to listen to and talk with each other, share information, consider each other’s perspectives, and make voluntary, informed decisions, with the assistance and support of an impartial mediator.
