Mediation is a process by which two parties utilize a registered neutral to assist in coming to an agreeable solution to their dispute.  Sometimes mediation is ordered by the court and sometimes parties decide to mediate on their own in an effort to solve their own problems.  Skye helps divorcing or divorced couples create legally binding agreements for issues such as custody, parenting plans, alimony, and divisions of property.

What to expect:

Skye can host the mediation at her office in Dahlonega, Georgia, can meet the parties at the 9th District Office of Dispute Resolution in Gainesville, Georgia, or can meet at an attorney’s office of the parties’ choosing.  Each party may choose to utilize a lawyer during the mediation or may choose to come by themselves.  Skye will meet with each party individually in separate rooms to understand that party’s position then go back and forth between parties to come to a resolution.  The agreement will be written and signed by the parties on the same day and sent to the appropriate District Office of Dispute Resolution.  It is then the responsibility of the parties and/or their lawyers to present the agreement to a judge for final approval.

Mediation generally takes four to eight hours, but can take more or less time depending on the complexity of the issues and the willingness of the parties to negotiate in good-faith.  Issues often mediated are divorce, custody, financial situations, neighbor disputes, and family situations.

Skye was trained at the University of Georgia in her capacity as a mediator and has certifications in General, Civil, Juvenile, and Domestic Relations.
