I sell TIME

What is it that I'm really selling as a pro se, pre-suit mediator? The answer - Time.  Uhh, time? I don't get it. Let me explain...briefly. Once you decide to divorce/separate, you can immediately come to a family mediator, who will guide you in reaching a settlement agreement regarding your children and/or property.  A settlement can be reached in one day. Your next step is to the courthouse, where you can file your divorce papers and settlement agreement. The final step is a hearing before a judge where your settlement agreement will be finalized.  This three step process can be accomplished in a couple of months.  The traditional divorce/separation process with attorneys can take many months even years for an agreement to be reached. That process is plagued with scheduling, rescheduling, and more rescheduling. Trying to find acceptable dates and balance schedules for the parties and their attorneys is a circus act.  Time is invaluable and can never be returned to you. Save yourself the hassle and hire a mediator FIRST.
