Stephanie Barkett, MS Law, MS MFTDIVORCE AND CUSTODY MEDIATION

It is possible to divorce with dignity and respect, which honors your past and moves you closer to a happy future. I will help you and your spouse navigate your divorce cooperatively so that you avoid court and the battle that often ensues. Avoid letting attorneys and the courts entangle you in a long, expensive, drawn out battle. I can guide you through the entire divorce process to include the filing of all divorce documents for a fraction of the cost and with peace of mind that the psychological and emotional effects of divorce are cared for. Our affordable divorce and custody mediation services are tailored to fit your needs. You choose the level of support you need.

I can help you mediate custody and a parenting plan or complete your entire divorce. Before graduating from law school I practiced Marriage and Family Therapy for 16 years. This experience will provide an environment that allows each party to be heard and feel respected. No matter the issues, the process can be made simpler and over sooner if each party is willing to act in good faith. Mediation is a collaborative approach that avoids unnecessary legal fees and arrives at a settlement agreement that can be filed with the court, often without a court appearance.

We can complete your uncontested divorce, paperwork by a certified legal document preparer and/or provide full service mediation with Stephanie Barkett.

Mediation will include the resolution of all aspects of divorce to include:​

Child custody and parental time

Spousal and child support

Property and asset division

Marital Settlement Agreement

Filing of all required documentation for a divorce and child custody.

Our affordable services begin at $250/hour for mediation and an uncontested divorce (a divorce that does not require mediation). A complete divorce with mediation, on average requires 1-2 mediation sessions and costs $2500.00- $4000.00. We require no retainer and can complete your divorce in 45 days. The complexity and level of conflict of each situation will influence the cost.
