- How long does it take to mediate a divorce? ANSWER: It all depends; I will move through the process as quickly or as slowly as my clients prefer, but I always want to do quality work. Typically, the total time involved is about three months.
- Will I need to retain an attorney? ANSWER: You are not required to have an attorney present to mediate your divorce. If you want an attorney to assist you between sessions and/or review the final documents, that is your option.
