About  Divorce Mediation- As you enter the next stage of your life your family matters continue to impact you and your children’s lives. The function of Mediation is to simplify your family matters in the most productive and beneficial way possible for all. Divorce Mediation aims at reducing tensions, not increasing it in a non-adversarial forum. Divorce Mediation is for people who want to retain control over the decisions that affect their lives as well as not wanting their children caught in the middle. The average mediation time is 3-10 hours, taking into consideration your financial circumstances and cooperation.  Sessions are scheduled for two hours each and are usually a week or two apart.  Avoid the costly, nerve-wracking legal system. Divorce mediation gives you the chance to try before committing an exorbitant amount of time and money to the courtsThe Mediation Advantage will guide you through aspects of your pre- and post- divorce issues We facilitate productive communication, assist the mediation to stay on task , offer options, strategies and resolutions and minimize consequences- to be mutually acceptable- which best serve the needs for  both of you and your children. Through extensive training and experience, mediators can suggest creative solutions to problems that the parties may have considered "unsolvable". Divorce Mediators deal with every issue involved in the dissolution of a marriage: Distribution of Marital Property and Debts, Child Custody, Vistitation, Child Support issues, and Spousal Support..Mediation is also for couples who do not have children, or whose children are grown.

    1.  Mediation is a very sensible option as long as you are reasonable, willing and able to cooperate for the sake of your families new and ever changing circumstances. Fighting, arguing, and blaming each other in a marriage or similar relationship can lead to more of the same while trying to resolve the issue. The consequences of continuing in this manner can include protracted litigation, increasing costs, a reduced standard of living, and significant damage to your children's emotional health.  What kind of divorce do you want? Some people want to go in guns blazing. There are a LOT of attorneys who just love clients like that because they know they can make a lot of money off of you. Mediation is NOT for you, if you seek revenge, control,  involved in domestic violence, and hidden marital assets.  We do not give legal advice.  We recommend attorneys who can review your case and determine the legalities of your circumstances.

ABOUT US

My name is Aviva Gordon, the founder and director of The Mediation Advantage. At TMA we are on a mission to aid families in this grueling process, at very reasonable rates. It is ridiculous for you to give large sums of your hard earned $$$ to the legal system. I have first-hand learned how to manage the “divorce” system, one in which you will no doubt travel through. My past work, education and personal life all contributed to this becoming my passion - to help others navigate this major life change. Having been through and still going through life as an ex- spouse I can attest to the challenges you are facing now and for many years to come. The good news is if you choose to manage your life in a mature way, it does get easier and you get stronger, wiser and more patient every day. It is my honor and privilege to help you become aware of what is really in store for your family as you divorce, raise your children, remarry and began anew often with a blended families. As a courtesy to every couple who needs divorce assistance we offer to your case, the first hour of mediation at no charge. If you like what you have learned from us, then we continue working together. We collect a reasonable retainer fee. ( No $5000.00 retainer fee with us!) A substantial portion of our fees are donated to local charities. If your party did not find TMA beneficial to your circumstances, then you have just acquired one hour of divorce assistance.This our gift to you, no questions, no aggravation, and we wish you well. At TMA, we do not provide legal advice. We recommend attorneys who can review your case and determine the legalities of your circumstances. In addition we assist you with accountants/financial planning, clergy and therapists as needed.

 “quotes from clients”

 
“I am definitely more ‘emotional’ especially about this process and you shielded me from great distress and were able to act on my behalf and my family. “ “Aviva helped my wife and I to write our settlement in an amicable process. This enabled us to minimize our time with lawyers and keep our money for ourselves and our kids. Divorce is hard, but at least we worked through the settlement process without adding to the interpersonal issues that already existed.

Aviva works like a referee and a coach in one. Staying at the table in a civil manner requires everybody accepting and sticking to some ground rules. That is the referee part. Coaching wise, she tries to understand what is really important to each person and help find an optimal solution.

It is apparent in working with Aviva that she has genuine concern to help her clients through a difficult time in the best possible way.”

"To borrow a buzzword from the touchy-feely set, Gordon's approach to mediation is more 'holisitic' than operational. Even though her personality screams 'all business' it bellies the velvet glove touch she employs with clients, many of whom bring their visceral pain to the negotiating table."
