What may be important in a divorce process?

In our divorce process, for both men and women, spouses, and partners there are many components that are necessary to insure that a divorce will reduce expenses, be complete, and will hold up over time. In order to successfully accomplish these goals, we will help you outline your needs and define your priorities. Together we devise a plan that is sensitive to your unique family circumstances and one that both of you find fair and acceptable. Your specific plan is confidential and specific, we will answer all of your questions.

We have also included answers to some general questions about our services such as:

How much time does it take?

Each dispute and case is unique and in its own way requires different needs and resources. As a result no estimate of time can be precise. However, we have an initial range for divorce cases which average 7-10 sessions, with each session lasting 1-2 hours.

How quickly do you respond?

Mediation is usually a very personal process. Although you are presently on the Internet, divorce mediation still also requires face to face meetings and telephone conversations. Unlike other services we encourage you to call us first with no charge or obligation, so that we may answer any other questions that you might have or to provide you with any additional information. Our toll free number is 1.800.529.1516.

What does it cost?

While quality is the most critical ingredient in the mediation process, cost is also a very important component in any professional service. People often chose mediation because they receive excellent service and may only have to pay one mediator, instead of paying two lawyers, twice as much. Our rates range from $50 per hour, per party to $195 per hour per party depending upon the complexity of the dispute, and the qualifications and experience of the mediator.

What location is the best for me?

Alternative Law is a very flexible organization ,with many centers for meeting clients throughout America. If our offices are not suitable or convenient, we will always arrange for a convenient meeting place for both all concerned.
