There's a better way to end your marriage.

The average cost of divorce in Ohio is $15,000 per person.  A high conflict divorce can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. The average time for a divorce to work through the court system is 12 to 18+ months. 


Let's be real - divorce is ugly, massively inefficient, and incredibly expensive.

It doesn't have to be that way.  Before you lawyer up and rush to court, consider divorce mediation. The average cost of mediation at JGK Mediation is between $3,5000-$5,000. That's total - not per person! The amount of time to mediate with JGK Mediation is typically only 8 weeks from our first session until your case is filed.

Divorce Mediation is an opportunity to avoid the risks that come with placing the fate of your family in the hands of the court.  Mediation also maintains the privacy of certain aspects of your marriage and family.  Most importantly, it saves you and your spouse (and your children) from the astronomical cost of litigation.  By engaging Columbus based mediator and lawyer, Jessica King, the parties cut down on the time and cost associated with traditional divorce.


Jessica can help the parties resolve issues related to custody, support, division of assets and liabilities and other unique issues presented by the termination of your marriage. 

Jessica can also assist with post-decree matters related to co-parenting, parenting time schedules and other family matters that arrive after a divorce or dissolution has been finalized.

Jessica King believes a successful mediation must include the following elements:

                 -Patience and steadfast persistence

                 -Thoughtful listening to the parties' concerns

                 -Effective and controlled communication

                 -Awareness and acknowledgement of common ground and/or intention

                 -Compassionate understanding of the parties' personalities and emotions

Jessica combines all of the above components to successfully guide clients away from the expense and disruption of litigation and toward a win-win result in settlement.
