Hampton Roads | Newport News | Virginia Beach Divorce Mediation
Almost any couple wants to avoid a bitter and costly divorce. In this process, however, it’s almost inevitable to encounter significant conflicts that draw out proceedings into a time-consuming and money-consuming battle. When this happens, not only are you burdened with steep expenses, your family relations are also unnecessarily strained, and especially if you have children.
An ideal alternative to courtroom divorce is mediation. This legal process resolves divorce conflicts with the help of an independent and neutral professional Mediator. The Mediator facilitates a formal Agreement between you and your spouse, to equitably divide your marital estate. All issues are covered, including custody of the children, retirement concerns, the marital home, support issues, and anything else that matters to both of you.
If you are a parent, divorce mediation is particularly helpful. This process allows both you and your spouse to make joint decisions about your children. As mediation is usually a more peaceful process, your children can be spared much of the emotional trauma associated with the inevitable changes inherent in divorce. This has real value.
As seen on billboards across Hampton Roads
You can choose to mediate all potential issues involved in divorce. The four most common stressors in divorce are spousal support (alimony), child support, parenting time, and divisions of assets and debts. The process of mediation can help resolve all these issues in a less-formal setting, more quickly, less expensively, and more successfully.

Parenting, Child Custody, And Child Support
Issues of custody, visitation, (parenting time), and child support are always emotional, stressful, and usually extremely expensive to fight over. Even more reason to maintain some input and control in the process. It’s either the parents who will decide or a “stranger in a black dress”, namely, a Judge. Why not you?
Deciding Between Litigated Divorce And Mediated Divorce
Family court Judges and almost all of the legal community at large prefer mediated divorce over courtroom divorce. Surely, there are cases more suited to one or the other. Know the pros and cons of these two proceedings to determine which will work best for your specific case.
Financial Matters In Divorce
Money issues during separation are fairly high-stakes and often complex. At the conclusion of the divorce, financial decisions are legally enforced. In a mediation process, you and your spouse can navigate this legal maze while protecting your finances with informed decisions. Divorce mediation is a process where you and your spouse can iron out money disputes while protecting both your finances with informed decisions.
Mediation is Not Just for Family Law
Our Mediators are certified/experienced in both General and Family Mediation and have helped resolve multiple types of disputes: Business, Civil, Community, and Personal, even Church disputes! Mediation is highly effective at resolving disputes and minimizing costs of course, but sometimes more importantly, while doing all that – Mediation can also save relationships. Usually not so in Court!

We went through Holcomb Law for our mediation, and I was extremely impressed with them.
