Some spouses going through a divorce will agree on everything. Some spouses will not agree to anything. But what about those who agree on some issues in mediation related to their divorce case but not others? Are they doomed to litigate their entire case?

Our mediation service puts spouses in a position to resolve their cases by ensuring each of them understands the law, learn how family law applies to their particular set of facts and the discretion the Family Court Judge has when he or she rules on the issues.
