Divorce/Family Mediation


Mountain Mediation Center provides a neutral third party who has been trained to assist divorcing and separating parties in reaching an acceptable resolution to their conflict.  The mediator does not impose a decision on the parties, but affords the parties an opportunity to craft their own settlement by taking control over decisions made during the mediation.  Participants are provided a forum to discuss issues together in an environment of safety and facilitates forward-thinking discussion.  Research indicates that participants in mediation are more likely to follow through on agreements since they have actively participated in creating the agreement. Mediation is both voluntary and confidential.  While a mediator cannot provide legal advice to a mediation participant, you may bring your lawyer to mediation with you. Our mediators have met all training and continuing educational requirements to be court-qualified and appear on the Utah State Court Roster of Mediators.

Family Mediation:

Many family discussions can be fraught, and patterns of communication may make reaching agreements challenging.  With a mediator present to assist in sorting out the details that need to be addressed, issues can be more readily discussed.  Topics can cover custody modifications, reaching co-parenting agreements, navigating parent-teen relationships, and elder issues.
