When unmarried partners realize that their relationship is no longer working and decide to split, important issues may need to be resolved, especially if the relationship lasted several years. Legal issues need to be handled differently when unmarried couples separate. Settling matters through family mediation may be the best course of action.

Family Mediation — A Compelling Alternative to Litigation
Unmarried partners do not have the same legal protection as married couples. This can be difficult when making decisions regarding property division, child support and child custody. In such cases, collaborative family law or mediation is a strong alternative to litigation.
Mediation is designed to help disputing couples reach an amicable resolution with the help of a neutral mediator focused on facilitating open discussions. This is also a more cost-effective approach, since each side can split the mediation fees instead of hiring his or her own family law attorneys.
