There are many reasons that people pursue mediation. The majority choose to mediate as they control the process and outcome by creating solutions that satisfy the needs of the family as a whole.

He focuses on matrimonial mediation. This work is also done for Connecticut state and federal courts. Attorney Simmons is also professionally trained in family law mediation
Often, mediation is the route to a reasonably resolved divorce or legal separation settlement when both parties understand the benefits of this way of resolving issues, including child custody, child support, spousal support and division of marital property. Contact the Law Offices of Piazza, Simmons & Grant – Family Law to schedule a consultation on your Connecticut divorce law questions and learn how our mediation lawyers can help you.
Mediation is not effective in every situation. There are some divorces that are better suited to litigation. If your spouse or domestic partner is not willing to engage in reasonable negotiations, we are prepared to advocate aggressively for your well-being in Connecticut courts.
Mediation works best in situations where spouses are willing to set aside their differences and make intelligent decisions about their future and the future of their children. It is often done in a series of sessions, where spouses can address one or more issues in each session.
With the help of an attorney, you will create a complaint and separation agreement that will contain statements describing the decisions you made — decisions like a complete parenting plan and division of all marital property.
