Considering Mediation

Mediation is a means of ending a marriage amicably by providing a third party to help facilitate an enforceable agreement. It is often the best way to decide important issues such as child custody and support, property division and spousal support in a way that saves time and money.

Washington Mediation Lawyer

Mediation Lawyer | MarysvilleDivorce can be an emotional roller-coaster. With over two decades of experience in family law, attorney Linda Passey understands the effect divorce can have on your family, well-being and relationships. Especially in matters involving child custody, the aftermath of divorce can cause deep resentment and damage. Mediation is a responsible step towards the process of healing. It can often help to reduce the impact of divorce both emotionally and financially and is a much faster process than a contested divorce or litigation. Mediation encourages the two parties to work together to find a solution, giving more power to both sides instead of leaving important decisions in the hands of a judge. Also, the expense of litigation can often be very high while mediation is a fraction of the cost.

Mediation means Privacy

Mediation provides privacy that an open court doesn’t. It can often be the best solution where there aren’t deeper issues of power imbalance, abuse, or other variables that might lead towards difficulty in resolving things and getting your life back on track.

Empowering You

Mediation happens within a time frame determined by you, not the court system. It gives you control over your future and will often help to maintain compliance for the agreement and respect between the parties in the future.
