Divorce Mediation

Divorce Mediation is an alternative approach to dispute resolution in which couples use a neutral professional to help them discuss and negotiate the terms of their separation and divorce. Scott and Amy are trained mediators. Depending on the circumstances of the client’s case, Scott and Amy may mediate a matter individually, together, or sometimes they co-mediate with attorney mediators.

In a mediated divorce, Scott can act as a (non-attorney) mediator for one member of the separating couple, or be engaged as a co-mediator in which Amy Mazer is the other mediator (representing the other party). In co-mediated divorces, Amy and Scott work as a team with both spouses during every mediation session.

Collaborative Divorce

In a collaborative divorce, Scott works with a multi-disciplinary team that also includes attorneys, other mental health professionals and financial specialists to help couples resolve their disputes respectfully, without going to court.
