Divorce Mediation

5 Star Client Review on Google

Colorado Courts order mediation for family matters because the parties themselves participate in creating their own agreements in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding or MOU.  The court routinely adopts the MOU as the court order when the agreement is fair to all parties, which produces higher satisfaction with the end result.  Mediation focuses on solutions that meet the needs of all family members, reduces conflict, and allows for more control over the outcome. Mediation is required in disputed matters whether or not the couple has retained an attorney.  Mediation helps to determine whether agreement can be voluntarily reached before the judge imposes a decision.
