Marital Mediation

Chapel Hill NC Marital Mediation Lawyer

Durham County Family Dispute Mediator

At the Irwin Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that couples are individuals first. Each spouse grew up in a different family, and may have varying ideas on how best to handle money, stepchildren or even hobbies. When an issue becomes a sticking point in the marriage, I recommend the couple seek professional support to help address the dispute.

Some couples prefer to work issues out with the help of a therapist, while others are uncomfortable with a "touchy-feely" approach. For these clients, I offer the alternative of marital mediation.

Marital mediation provides you with a comfortable place to air your differences, while helping you work together for constructive dispute resolution.

Contact me via e-mail or call 888-606-8455 to schedule an initial consultation to discuss marital mediation, collaborative divorce or any other family law matter.

Working Out Practical Solutions to Big Family Problems

At the Irwin Law Firm, PLLC, we believe that it is possible to resolve differences amicably. When you meet with Laura Irwin, founding attorney, Certified Superior Court Mediator and Family Financial Mediator, you will have the opportunity to put your concerns on the table without going through psychotherapy.

Many families today face increased pressures due to the economic downturn. For others, the Big Issue is power — who makes the money, who gets to spend it and what they spend it on. For some spouses in second marriages, dealing with stepchildren and former spouses is a big challenge.

All of these issues are fodder for marital disputes, which left unchecked may lead to divorce.

Working With a Mediator

My goal as a certified mediator is to help you identify the problems that are threatening your relationship and forge a practical, working agreement that serves each spouse's interest.

A mediator is a neutral third party who listens to the concerns of both spouses, helps them identify sources of their conflict and works with both to help create a strategy for resolution. A mediator often helps the couple learn how to communicate and negotiate with each other more effectively. Depending on the couple's preferences, a postnuptial agreement or an informal agreement may be created.

I am committed to help couples move forward in a positive way. For additional information about marital mediation or to schedule an appointment, contact me at my Chapel Hill law office.
