Finding Common Ground

In divorce mediation, the primary focus is on resolving the division of assets, debts, and parenting responsibility and sharing time fairly and amicably. Unlike traditional litigation where one party aims to “win” the case, mediation focuses on finding mutually beneficial solutions for both parties involved.

Financial analysis

When it comes to divorce mediation, financial analysis is crucial. The process involves examining two main aspects: assets (what is owned) and debts (what is owed) of the marriage, as well as the expenses of each household (including those of any children involved) and the resources (income) available to pay for these expenses. To ensure transparency in mediation, full disclosure of all financial information is required. You will receive a specific list of financial documents to gather and worksheets to estimate future expenses. Resolvium will assist you in comprehending these components of your marital economic partnership that need separation during the divorce proceedings.

Financial needs

When it comes to families going through divorce mediation, the conversation around household needs is often centered on the children. It’s important to come to agreements on how their needs will be met, including financial support for child maintenance and maintenance payments between spouses with different incomes. Unlike a court-based litigation process that focuses heavily on legal formulas and statutes for financial support, divorce mediation with Resolvium involves discussions of financial needs with more flexibility and openness.

Division Of Assets And Debts​

When it comes to divorce mediation, the end goal is to establish and maintain two sustainable households. To achieve this, Resolvium can assist with dividing and distributing assets such as real estate, investments, bank accounts, retirement accounts, business interests, vehicles, and personal properties. We will also help with managing debts such as mortgages, car loans, credit card debt, and student loan debt. Through mediation, all parties are considered for the implications of every decision made to ensure that they are acceptable to both parties.


When going through a divorce, opting for a parenting plan created through divorce mediation can be highly beneficial. This plan will recognize the importance of maintaining a co-parenting relationship and clearly define each parent’s role in order to minimize any negative impact on your children. Additionally, this plan will outline how to ensure that your children continue to experience positive growth and development. Choosing mediation over traditional divorce proceedings will ultimately benefit your children in the long run. Even though you and your partner are no longer living together, the parental agreement that comes with mediation showcases your love and shared concern for your children, making them the top priority. Through divorce mediation, we ensure that the plan affirms a positive experience for your children with both parents moving forward. Our goal is to make sure that the children’s well-being is at the forefront of every decision made during the mediation process.

Divorce mediation is a process where a neutral third party, known as a mediator, facilitates communication between two parties going through a divorce. The goal is to help them reach mutually agreeable resolutions on various issues related to the dissolution of their marriage.

The mediator does not make decisions for the couple, but rather assists them in making their own decisions. This process is generally less adversarial and less expensive than traditional divorce litigation, and it can help the couple maintain better relationships moving forward, which can be particularly important when children are involved. At Resolvium, we provide expert divorce mediation services aimed at helping couples navigate this difficult process with dignity and respect.

These issues may include:

  • Division of property and debts
  • Child custody and parenting plans
  • Spousal and child support
  • Any other matters that need to be resolved

Divorce mediation and traditional litigation are two different approaches to handling a divorce. Here’s how they differ:

  • Control Over Outcome: In mediation, the parties themselves have control over the outcome. They work together to reach agreements that are mutually satisfactory. In litigation, decisions are made by a judge, and the parties have less control over the result.

  • Cost: Mediation is generally less expensive than litigation. This is because it avoids many of the costs associated with court proceedings, such as lawyer’s fees, court costs and other related expenses.

  • Confidentiality: Mediation sessions are private and confidential. The discussions and agreements remain between the parties involved. On the other hand, traditional litigation is a matter of public record.

  • Time: Mediation can often be completed more quickly than litigation, since it doesn’t depend on court dates and judicial availability.

  • Relationships: Mediation tends to be less adversarial than litigation. It encourages cooperation and communication, which can help preserve relationships, particularly when children are involved.

While divorce mediation can be a beneficial process for many couples, it may not be the best choice for everyone. Here are some factors that might influence whether mediation is suitable:

  • Willingness to Communicate: Both parties should be willing to openly communicate and negotiate with each other. If there’s a significant communication breakdown, mediation might be challenging.

  • Mutual Respect: Mediation works best when both parties can treat each other with respect. If there is a high level of animosity or one party feels intimidated by the other, mediation may not be effective.

  • Transparency: It’s crucial that both parties are honest and transparent about their assets and debts. If one party is suspected of hiding assets, the transparency needed for successful mediation might be lacking.

  • Domestic Violence: In situations where there’s a history of domestic violence, mediation may not be appropriate due to the power imbalance and risk of intimidation.

  • Agreement to Mediate: Both parties must agree to the mediation process. If one party is strongly opposed to it, mediation may not be feasible.
