At the Mediation Center of Eastern Connecticut,
we believe that separation and divorce need not be angry, expensive, time-consuming, and emotionally destructive to families.
MCEC helps divorcing and separating couples negotiate settlement agreements that are both fair and workable. Through divorce mediation, MCEC aims to:
Our professional mediators help couples
avoid bitterness and destructive battles by identifying common ground and
negotiating to resolve conflicts.
- Preserve family goodwill
- Help couples create their own agreements, so that both
more satisfied with the results
- Save time and money
- Make the process easier on adults
For families with children, we help the
couple focus on the parental issues before the financial ones. We emphasize
that the two issues are separate, and that the best interests of the children
are the primary concerns in divorce.
Throughout a painful process, Mary and Laura helped to maintain calm and reason, which was key to eventually reaching a fair outcome. I admit that as a male, I was initially concerned that my side might be short changed. In retrospect, I can say that such a fear was unfounded. - Roy M.
