Divorce is always difficult, but in most cases it does not need to be a hellish, acrimonious legal process. Mediation presents an attractive alternative to litigated divorce. It is generally much more cooperative, much less stressful and much more satisfying to both parties when compared to traditional divorce as presided over by a judge. It is often less expensive, as well.
At the law office of Debra E. Stokes, L.L.C., we help clients utilize divorce mediation to address all aspects of divorce, including:
Division of property
Child custody and visitation
Alimony and spousal support
Our firm can help you understand whether mediation may be in your best interest. If a mediated divorce is right for you, lawyer Debra E. Stokes can facilitate the smoothest possible resolution of your case.
