If you get my voice mail, please do leave me a message!
Be assured, I will call you back as soon as possible.
My team and I work with couples to create
a separation/divorce agreement through mediation.
In a mediated agreement, you both decide the terms and what works best for you and your family, as opposed to a litigated agreement which is imposed on you by a court or a judge.

our mediation process
At Safian Mediation, we provide a safe and confidential environment so that each of you can express your thoughts and your needs. Unlike the negative adversarial approach which looks to find fault with each party, mediation sets a positive tone by promoting honesty, openness, understanding and respect.
Safian Mediation, once the mediation process is completed – and only when you are fully comfortable with all the decisions that you have made, an agreement can be drafted for you. In the case of divorce, your final Legal Agreement will be prepared and can then be filed in the courts. If you so desire, we can make available our legal and/or financial team to consult with either or both of you, at any time during the process.
From our first conversation until your Legal Separation or Divorce documents are filed, the Safian Mediation team will guide you in developing an agreement that works for you and for your family, on your schedule, and at a much lower cost than going through an adversarial and/or litigated divorce.
some of the many benefits of mediation
with mediation – you make the decisions, not a judge:
When getting separated with the help of a trained professional mediator, no one will force you into any decision that you don’t want to make.
mediation is family friendly:
Choosing mediation and it’s more amicable approach to getting separated, will benefit your family and your children.
mediation is equitable and fair for both of you:
The mediator is a neutral party who will protect both of you, and through the mediation process, will help to ensure that you build a Legal Separation Agreement that feels equitable and fair to you both.
mediation is a fraction of the cost of litigation:
You and your spouse don’t need to hire and pay separate attorneys to represent each of you in order to work out all the different issues that need to be addressed.
mediation sessions are available to fit your schedule:
We offer very flexible schedules to accommodate your professional and family obligations, scheduling mediation session appointments on weekdays as well as weekends and evenings.

“I wanted to thank you for being such a help in this situation. It might not seem like you’ve done much but just having you there in the room changed everything – really. I do understand that its not your job to take sides and that its important for you to remain impartial. I do wish it were possible to show you, though, how radically different that conversation was just because you were there listening” MB.
