SMITH, WYKES, & ASSOCIATES, P.C.

Attorney Sean P. Smith is a Divorce and Family Mediator.  Having received his Divorce Mediation Skills Training from Northwestern University, Mr. Smith provides mediation services for families and couples who are divorcing or separating.  Litigation can be a very costly and public process.  Mediation offers an alternative to litigation by providing couples with assisted negotiation in a private setting. 

Mediation can be used prior to either party initiating litigation, or can be used once the litigation process has already begun.  In either case, mediation provides couples with an opportunity to focus on their and their children's interests, as opposed to operating within the narrow constraints of the family court system and an adversarial process.

Divorcing couples can mediate virtually all of the issues related to their separation, including custody, parenting time, child and spousal support, property, finances, retirement accounts and more.

If you are contemplating a divorce, or are already in the process, please feel free to contact Attorney Smith to discuss the mediation process.
