We offer divorce mediation services in Evergreen, Conifer, Golden, Genesee and surrounding areas.
Save time and a great deal of money by working together in divorce mediation and planning:
- If your marriage is long or short
- If your financial picture is large or small
- If you do or do not have children
Friendly Divorce – Evergreen can help you create your divorce agreement and complete your court papers,
so you can avoid an expensive and painful fight.
You can resolve these in an amicable way in mediation:
- Your property division
- Parenting plan (custody and visitation),
- Child support
- Maintenance (alimony)
The mediator works with both of you, as a neutral. She doesn’t take sides. She works to help you reach agreement. You can plan for the tax effects of your agreement as well.
The mediator writes up the agreement you reach, to be used as your final agreement in court, and can assist you with your other court paperwork.
In mediation you make the decisions and agreements, not the mediator. The mediator provides legal and other information and explanations that help you to have the conversation and negotiation that you need to have with each other to resolve these matters. You stay in the driver’s seat, instead of letting someone else, lawyers or the judge, make your decisions for you.
Mediation Leads to Greater SatisfactionDivorced and married couples can be proud of the respectful and dignified manner in which they handled something very difficult at a difficult time. Long term satisfaction with your agreement depends on two factors:
- A deep sense that you have been fair to yourself
- The same deep sense that you have been fair to the other. “Fair” here includes respect

Options for the Marriage in Difficulty: The Postnup
When difficulties arise in a marriage, most couples think they can go to counseling or get a divorce. In fact there are other options. For some, reaching a verbal agreement plus a handshake and a kiss are enough. For others, a formal written agreement is the solution. This would be a post-nuptial agreement, or “postnup” (in contrast to a pre-nuptial, which is made before the marriage). Some just call it a “marital” agreement.
Sometimes a financial arrangement interferes with the flourishing of a relationship. Such a challenge can be resolved through understanding and agreements, whether the difficulties are about spending and saving, or needed clarification about what’s “yours”, “mine” and “ours”.
Agreements that draw some acceptable bright lines in these areas can be real solutions.
Couples have made agreements in other areas too, such as steps toward better communication, including about screen time, housekeeping, car care, parenting rules, and even in areas such as alcohol, drugs, and gambling.
In these areas and others, you can choose the course that’s best for you, or think of something new. Mediation is a great process for creativity. While not all couples who come to mediation resolve all that they set out to accomplish, most do.
Contact us today, and find out whether mediation is appropriate for your situation, and to discuss your options. Some people call us individually, and others schedule a time when both spouses or partners can be on the line, a conference call.
