Divorce Mediation and
Elder Care Mediation

Premier Mediation Firm in the Rochester, NY Area

Divorce Mediation - Separation and divorce are some of the most painful situations a couple can face. Once the decision to divorce has been made, couples are often overwhelmed with emotion and fear. Divorce mediation is a voluntary non-adversarial process that allows separating or divorcing partners the chance to work together to resolve their disputes in a way that benefits the whole family. Conflicts are resolved without the time, expense, and divisiveness of the traditional divorce litigation process. Divorce mediation allows both parties to retain control, which can be instrumental to their recovery from divorce. Divorce and family mediation also presents families with a method to settle their conflicts so that they may continue to work together even after the divorce is finalized. If you are searching for a divorce mediator in the Rochester, New York, and surrounding areas, Solutions Through Mediation can assist you in arriving at a peaceful resolution.

Elder Care Mediation – Elder care mediation is a part of family mediation. Changes in a people’s health, needs and roles can create stress and challenges for the elder, their loved ones and caregivers. Health, financial and caregiving issues can be serious matters for families to resolve. In some situations, distance, conflict or family dynamics make it difficult for family members to resolve these elder care issues without assistance. Elder mediation helps families, health professionals and/or medical care service providers create workable solutions to achieve a smooth transition and thoughtful plan for the future. Solutions Through Mediation specializes in elder care conflict resolution.
