Why Use Mediation?

Mediation is often sought as a cost-effective, less adversarial alternative to court litigation, allowing parties to collaboratively negotiate settlements with the help of a neutral mediator. It is particularly beneficial when parties seek to maintain amicable relationships post-dispute, such as co-parenting arrangements.

Do you have a divorce or family law dispute? Mediation with Esse Tuke is a useful tool to resolve your matter. Mediation is useful during divorce proceedings to resolve disputes related to property division, child custody, support, and alimony, or post-judgment to address changes in circumstances or conflicts arising from the enforcement of court orders.
