Separation and divorce can be painful and confusing. At Fields Family Mediation in Charlottesville, VA, our goal is to help you navigate the stress and chaos of divorce or separation as calmly and effectively as possible. Mediation in divorce often dramatically reduces the emotional and financial damage that high conflict and lengthy legal battles can produce, with improved outcomes for you and your family members. In addition, working directly with your ex-partner (rather than solely through divorce attorneys) can strengthen the foundation for better co-parenting and other necessary communication in the years ahead, even when that seems hard to imagine right now. Ideally, you will leave mediation with a plan for your future that is clear, lasting, and thorough. Most importantly, the decisions are yours, not the court’s.
