Mediation

Frantz Ward serves as a professionally-trained divorce mediator. We are jointly hired by the parties to facilitate confidential discussions to help them make informed decisions and reach an agreement on the issues. Mediation focuses on problem solving and provides the parties control over the outcome. As a result, this process can be less expensive, both financially and emotionally. While a mediator cannot provide legal advice, it places the parties in the driver’s seat to determine the outcome, which can be empowering and rewarding.
