Divorce/Domestic Relations Mediation

Mediation is designed to focus on settlement of disputes rather than preparing for litigation. Mediation provides a structured environment to facilitate agreement between disputing parties and assist the parties in exploring settlement, reconciliation, and understanding.

As a neutral, Attorney Stark focuses on managing the mediation process to give all parties the ability to solve their problems by working together in a less formal, and less adversarial, setting.
