There's a better way to end your marriage.

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 only $2,500.  The average amount of time to mediate with JGK Mediation is just 5 weeks start to finish.

                 -Effective and controlled communication

                 -Awareness and acknowledgement of common ground and/or intention

                 -Transcendent understanding of the parties' personalities and emotions
