Orchard Mediation, Inc. (OM) offers consultations to help parties understand more about how mediation works. In this initial meeting, we share a roadmap for the mediation process, answer any questions, and provide clarity about what to expect and what kind of information will be needed going forward. We also furnish each attendee with a packet of informational materials.
As neutral mediators committed to ensuring a balanced process from the outset, one that both parties can feel confident in, our consultations are set up with both spouses (or co-parents) together. The consultation lasts about 30-45 minutes.
We are available for appointments weekdays, weekends, and some evenings. In addition to our Union Square office, we also offer consultations at private mediation meeting locations throughout Manhattan and in downtown Brooklyn.
Thank you for reaching out to OM. We look forward to helping you get started in the mediation process.
