Compassionate Guidance In Divorce Mediation
In addition to collaborative divorce and the more traditional methods of dispute resolution, Ostertag O'Leary Barrett & Faulkner also offers mediation as an option for our clients. Mediation is a nonadversarial dispute resolution process that takes place away from the courtroom.
Voluntary, Transparent And Respectful
We assist parties in settling their disputes during a series of meetings with them. We offer both “attorney-assisted mediation” – where parties choose lawyers to assist them during the mediation process, and “parties only mediation” – where the parties may consult with attorneys before and after the mediation sessions but the attorneys do not attend the meetings with the mediator. In either format, your mediator is impartial and will work on behalf of both you and your spouse.
Attorney Maura Barrett has more than 25 years of experience in the family law/divorce arena together with her mediation training (she is certified through the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers) to facilitate discussion between parties and assist them in reaching a written, mediated settlement agreement.
Couples can choose to mediate any or all of the financial, visitation and custody issues that accompany any divorce/relationship breakup, including division of the marital estate, pension rights, maintenance, child support and custody. Mediation facilitates more creative and self-guided solutions for couples.
