A divorce can be simple.
A faster and less costly divorce is possible when both spouses agree completely to the terms. Most couples sign a settlement without appearing in court.
Resolve your differences and move on without feeling emotionally and financially drained.
A divorce becomes final only when all disputes are resolved to the satisfaction of each spouse and the court. The ideal situation occurs when both of you both agree on how to handle distribution of property and child custody. You choose an attorney to help you properly file the dissolution.
When your divorce is uncontested right from the start, Samuel L. Cappas can help you file a low cost, simple divorce.
When is mediation necessary?
Arriving at a fair settlement can sometimes seem difficult or even impossible. Although both of you chose not to hire separate attorneys, repeated attempts to decide who gets the car and house etc. have become unproductive.

Get resolution with a divorce mediator.
Mediation is a simpler way to resolve major disputes which might otherwise force a judge or jury to alter your lives in less favorable ways. Because the goal is a written agreement signed by both parties, it's a valuable step in filing a simple, uncontested divorce.
Mediation offers lower legal expenses and seeks the best possible outcome for both parties. Couples willing to work together often reach full agreement in a single session.
Indiana divorce mediator Samuel L. Cappas and paralegal Paula Tsilis will help you find clarity and resolution.
Effective Mediation Techniques
In a mediation session facilitated by Sam Cappas and Paula Tsilis, both parties are encouraged to create constructive solutions. Couples negotiate together or in separate rooms. If you have attorneys you may invite them to the session, or simply provide them with a transcript of the proceedings.
Sam and Paula will foster an environment of equality where your issues are discussed and options can be brainstormed. The best outcome is when both spouses feel satisfied and ready to move on.
