Mediation Services in St Louis Missouri
You may be thinking I don’t need an outsider’s help to get divorced and you would be right. However, if you have children and assets and communication between you and your divorcing partner has broken down or you just don’t know where to start then our assistance and or that of an attorney might be the best decision you can make. We here at Family Mediation St. Louis, L.L.C. understand how painful, expensive and time consuming this process can be because each of us have been there – and some more than once such as yours truly : ^).
Few of us can afford to make bad financial decisions especially in this economy – I know I couldn’t as a Texas 5th Grade Special Ed Teacher. Neither could my ex-spouse who would be moving back to Nihon (Japan) Hi watashi wa Nihongo ga wakarimasu. I did not have the money to hire a high price attorney (she could : ^o ) and an attorney who has himself/herself for a client has a fool for a client or the saying goes something like that. We could have spent a lot of money fighting / competitive bargaining trying to get the most one can get at the expense of the other.
It is simple actually: the price of an St. Louis attorney can cost anywhere from $150.00 an hour to $250.00 plus, where mediation can help you resolve some of the many concerns/issues you face as you transition and move forward with you and your children’s lives. Unproductive communication is simply that – just hurtful and deflating.
However, Family Mediation St. Louis can help restore productive communication as we help you and your divorcing partner to reach agreements on the issues that concern you the most. Focused communication is structured communication which yields results. Results here are agreements created in an environment of fairness, nuetrality, logic and at the same time understanding and patience.
Simply This: Structured communication is focused only on the issues that matter most without reliance on emotion and competitive bargaining tactics, all of which, wastes time. We will save you time away from work (our hours suit your hours – not the other way around) because we have early morning, evening, night and weekend hours! So when your ready to get it done – so are we!
Mediation involves less people which not only saves money but also saves time. Your lawyer doesn’t have to call his lawyer who has to talk to your husband and then back around to you with his response; and on and on it goes. In mediation you meet face to face with one of our mediators at our office in Clayton MO or another neutral location which fits your needs.
So your thinking “yeah right” me and that *!@+#2 are going to sit down like civilized people and work out child custody, child visitation, child and or spousal support, and division of property. That is the advantage of mediation where the mediators are trained and experienced counselors, registered nurses all with degrees in psychology. No mediation is not psychotherapy but it is conciliatory in nature and by design to help you create agreements that are WIN-WIN Solutions for BOTH of YOU!
