Generally, we meet with you in mediation every several weeks. We may, because of clients’ needs, compress our work and meet more frequently and other times we meet much less frequently due to one or both parties’ travel or restricted availability.
This is often an optimal “spacing” of our work. It allows both parties time away from the mediation process to consider and discuss with others their emerging needs and structures. It also provides an opportunity to gather and research information of importance for themselves or to assist their spouse or co-parent.
We provide agreed upon homework and action items to assist clients in gathering the needed information and working toward the goals set in the mediation sessions. We continue with our meeting in this way, until all information is gathered; issues have been discussed and resolved, action items have been completed and an agreement reached!
