Why Divorce Mediation - Parties set their own timeframe for resolving issues, without having to wait months for the next court date or for a time when two lawyers and a judge can coordinate their calendars. It is possible to resolve your issues in a few sessions. One of the worst parts of divorce is the anxiety brought about by living with unresolved, lingering issues for a prolonged period remaining attached to someone after you have decided to separate.

Hello, my name is Michele Martin – Mediator for the first Divorce Hotel in the U.S. in Saratoga Springs, NY. I’d love the opportunity to help you and your spouse come to a mutual divorce agreement. Read what people are saying about Divorce Hotel…

My approach is client-focused. I view every case as unique and view the couple as the experts in what is the best resolution for them and their family. In other words, assisting my clients in proactively resolving the terms of their divorce and facilitating effective communication is integral to the success of the process. Divorce does not have to be a tragedy.

Couples do not have to "fight it out".

How Mediation Works

The couple and the mediator identify the issues needed to be discussed and the order in which they will be discussed, then decide what information needs to be gathered and shared. Between the first and later sessions the couple gathers all relevant financial data, or if necessary, the opinions of experts such as appraisers or accountants, with this material treated with the same care and concern as would be the case in the adversarial process.

The Result of Divorce Mediation

Despite the seeming impossibility, mediation is a very viable option in the vast majority of cases including high conflict situations. The presence of a skilled neutral party can have a powerful positive affect. The mediator provides a buffer as well as keeping both parties focused on reaching agreement – facilitating communication and focusing on the interests not the messy emotions that surround the issue.
