Is mediation a better option for your dispute?

Mediation is a process that allows all parties to work together, facilitated by a neutral third-party, known as a mediator. The mediator works to develop an agreement that leaves everyone involved feeling satisfied and in control.

About Melynda Gulley Bracken

Melynda Gulley Bracken is a highly experienced mediator with a proven track record in assisting couples through the divorce process. She has more than 20 years of experience in mediation (divorce, parenting plans, parenting plan modifications and possession schedules, and property division) in San Antonio, Texas.

Divorce is worthy of great sadness.

However, I have learned through experience, that if one party wants to leave, the graciousness and acceptance given to that person will go far to heal any real or perceived wounds. I love the way we help couples divorce because it does not tear down the bridge between them and at some later time, it is possible to walk back over it.
