Mediation: Helping You Stay In Control Of The Divorce Process

At the Law Offices of Donna L. Buttler, LLC, our goals are the same as yours: to make educated decisions, reduce the cost of your legal representation, and minimize the stress and emotions that a divorce can cause. Throughout the course of mediation, you and your spouse will work with a trained attorney to resolve all the issues related to your divorce. You will meet with one of our experienced mediation attorneys in our Farmington Valley office and speak privately in a conversation that will remain confidential.

We will help you and your spouse create a fair, comprehensive agreement. The mediation process provides the structure to discuss the difficult and important issues surrounding your divorce and your family. Together, we will identify your interests and needs and those of your children and develop an agreement that you are both comfortable with.

Your attorney mediator will act as an impartial party, explaining the applicable legal principles that provide a framework for discussing parenting, property distribution and financial support issues. We will create a separation agreement based on your decisions, not the attorneys' or a judge's, and one that will be approved by the court.
