Divorce Mediation

Sunrise Solutions understands the psychological and emotional needs of adults and children who are affected by divorce. We also recognize the dynamics of blended families. We help couples and individuals successfully deal with the conflict and discord that often hinders families.

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process whereby a neutral third person called a mediator acts to encourage and facilitate the resolution of a dispute between two or more parties. The role of the mediator includes, but is not limited to, assisting the parties in identifying issues, fostering joint problem solving, and exploring settlement alternatives. In divorce mediation, decision-making authority rests with the parties. We provide a variety of services including but not limited to:

Divorce Mediation: High Conflict Resolution

  • Child Custody and Parent Time
  • Create Parenting Plans
  • Child Support and Alimony
  • Distribution of Property
  • Retirement
  • Taxes

Pro Se Mediation

Pro Se Mediation is when couples obtain a divorce without retaining an attorney.

  • In Utah, this type of alternative dispute resolution is accepted in the court system.
  • Divorce mediation is the best alternative if you and your spouse are willing to work together to minimize your losses both financially and emotionally.
  • Divorce is not something anyone plans on experiencing. It is not unusual to feel like there is nowhere to turn for help. Thus, mediators can help provide facilitation and support when needed.

Divorce Decree Modifications in Sandy, Utah

If you have already facilitated a divorce and need a modification in your divorce decree, mediators can help facilitate such changes without litigation. Common desired changes include but are not limited to:

  • parent time changes
  • adjustments in alimony or child support
  • any other changes or issues that need modification

The legal system does not adequately protect unmarried partners when their partnership dissolves. The mediation process can provide the help that is needed in these cases to resolve conflicts about division of property and custody of children.

Please remember, a mediator cannot offer any legal advice. It is recommended that each party consult with an attorney prior or at some time during the mediation process to get legal questions answered.
