Mediation offers you an alternative to litigation.   GSCM has trained professionals guiding you towards mutual agreements in areas of divorce, visitation, business disputes, juvenile restitution and other other areas of conflict.   While the primary goal of mediation is to reach an agreement, mediation also promotes communication and cooperation.  

The mediator helps people examine their situation in terms of their needs and interest from a neutral standpoint and hopes to reach the best outcome for all parties involved.   Problems are separated into specific issues and discussed.   The mediator helps people shape, understand and evaluate options.   Mediation may be required for some court cases, however mediation is not legal advice nor will you receive legal advice.    Clients are encouraged to consult experts and/or attorneys through the process.   A Memorandum of Understanding is prepared and the mediator recommends agreements be reviewed by each parties' independent legal counsel when applicable.
