At its core, mediation is a process that allows divorcing couples the opportunity to work through disputes with a neutral third party before it becomes necessary to go before a judge. If you would like to discuss your specific situation and needs further, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Lillian S. Watson, who is a trained Gresham divorce and mediation attorney. If you elect to meet with Mrs. Watson as a mediator, she must remain neutral and cannot represent either party separately. If mediation will help you and your spouse reach a complete agreement, it may be appropriate to only have an attorney-mediator meet with you both and finalize your documents.
