Mediation is a less contentious and less expensive way to resolve issues that arise in a divorce and reach settlement. Litigation is adversarial, and if parties are unable to settle their case, a Judge will make important decisions for them. Mediation is the use of a neutral third party to assist parties in reaching agreement on their own terms without litigation. The result is less adversarial, more satisfactory, and more durable. Matt Longtin is a trained and experienced mediator who is dedicated to using alternate dispute resolution methods to help people reach settlement and move on with their lives.
