Mediation is a forum in which parties come together and settle legal matters that arise during the process of separation and divorce. Supported by a team of experts who educate about options and guide the process—parties retain control and shape parenting plans, property decisions, and other issues so that they can each move into independent lives.

Schuller & LeBlanc help parties focus on:

  • The Future—We understand that divorce shatters dreams. That parties struggle with uncertainty and fear. At Schuller & LeBlanc we support parents as they move through these swings of emotion. We also maintain a focus on the future—for each individual and for the family. We help parents vision a life that gets better—then we engage in a process to make that vision a reality. For everyone.
     

  • The Children—Most parents are concerned with the impact that divorce will have on the children. And rightly so. Divorce often becomes a child’s greatest fear—abandonment by their parents. Children survive divorce if—and only if—parents find a way to respect, honor, and work with each other. When parents continue to fully engage as Mom and Dad—children grieve the divorce, but they also survive and thrive beyond it. Schuller & LeBlanc educates and equips parents to craft a parenting plan that enables them to effectively co-parent even as they create separate lives.
     

  • Financial Security—Both households need financial security to move into a better future. Schuller & LeBlanc doesn’t focus on “dividing property.” Instead, at The Resolution Center, we focus on the utilizing the resources accumulated during the marriage to create the most financial stability for both houses.

The average cost of a litigated divorce exceeds $30,000. No wonder divorcing couples use on-line resources to do it themselves. Yet, the cost of this option can be devastating. Many decisions made in divorce cannot be changed later—even if parties didn’t understand what they were doing or if circumstances change dramatically. Our starting retainer ranges between $1250.00 and $2500.00 which is billed at a rate of $250.00 an hour. A sliding fee scale is available for low income families.
