Going through divorce may be the most challenging time of your life, but we know that it is possible to navigate with minimal collateral damage and shift your family structure in a cordial, healthy way.

Mediation is a rapidly growing field that is changing the face of the divorce and custody process for transitioning couples and families. In a traditional litigation process, the road to change is a lengthy and complicated framework where all life-changing decisions are outsourced to a court judge. Mediation gently fast tracks you through the process aiding you to make the decisions together outside of the traditional court system. Successful mediation facilitates quicker healing and more successful co-parenting as well as having significantly less financial impact.

The mediation team at The Center for Change at Kennett Square helps you move through this process with a group of professionals that work together to help minimize the impact of this life-altering transition.
