As your mediator, I will:
EXPLAIN: Through FAMILY MEDIATION or DIVORCE MEDIATION, we can work together to resolve pressing family issues. In mediation, you, the clients, have the power to make decisions that may affect you and your family for years to come. The PROCESS MAP shows the overall process for a divorce mediation. The COMPARISON chart compares in-person mediation and online mediation. We can discuss your options in the free consultation.
DESCRIBE: You may choose ONLINE MEDIATION, IN-PERSON MEDIATION, or a mix of the two. Agreements may be short-term and limited (during the COVID-19 pandemic for example), or long-term and comprehensive, such as a divorce and parenting plan. Online, parties may be separated by miles — or in separate rooms, after the kids are in bed. ONLINE MEDIATION tends to be more convenient and less expensive than IN-PERSON MEDIATION, which is more formal. The goal of mediation, whether in-person or online, is an agreement that will last.
GETTING STARTED with MEDIATION: We will begin with free 15-minute phone consultations for each spouse — or up to three family members. Consultations are confidential and private. If you are unsure whether video would work for you, check my RESOURCES page or request a free tech session in which we will practice using Zoom or other platforms. When you sign the Agreement to Mediate, you may choose in-person, online, or a mix-and-match approach to mediation sessions.
Divorce is never easy an easy decision. Making the decision to use Georgia to handle our divorce and custody issues was the best decision we made. Both of us felt that we were both being heard during the entire process. She guided us through the entire process. She helped us with referrals, we felt like we had options. I highly recommend Georgia, she is professional, competent, and compassionate.”
Georgia Daniels helped my wife and I by mediating a very painful divorce. It was tough and could have gone sideways many times, but Georgia kept us on track. I am so grateful to Georgia for her patience, professionalism and kindness.”
