Marital Conflicts Baltimore

MEDIATION WORKS FOR COUPLES AND FAMILIES WANTING TO PRESERVE THEIR MARRIAGE BUT FACED WITH CONFLICT, DIFFICULT OR COMPLEX CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE DECISIONS NEED TO BE MADE

When couples or families desire to stay together, but are faced with difficult or complex circumstances challenging their relationship, or creating stress points or fractures on the quality of their interaction, mediation can provide a breath of fresh air for the situation.
When working through the marital conflicts Baltimore may unfortunately experience, consider the use of a mediator.  Working with a third party neutral, in the privacy of a neutral meeting location, a facilitated meeting by a mediator promotes a more positive quality of interaction where the interaction can be slowed or summarized, allowing time to think and respond more thoughtfully about sensitive and important matters. Decisions can be more fully informed and completely responsive to each family’s needs and situation.  The marital conflicts Baltimore experiences can be stressful and fraught with heightened emotions.  By having a mediator present, all parties are able to develop a productive dialogue despite their emotions.

Such mediations can be one-time meetings or a series of meetings, as decided by the parties. The meetings are confidential and private in order to help establish trust on all sides. They may include issues such as financial matters, loss of job or income, sickness or injury, child entering college, alcohol or substance use, marital breaches, moves or transfers, pregnancy, in-law relationships, births, care-taking of elderly parents, emotionally challenged children’s needs, consideration of marriage for potentially engaged couples and so on.  These confidential meetings are created so all pertinent topics are able to be discussed in an open and productive manner.

All families face changes, often times significant changes, at certain times in their lives. Marital mediation is about offering the opportunity for quality interaction about difficult issues and making informed decisions together. The beauty of marital mediation is that it can be accessed as needed and is a preventative way to maintain a long and healthy marriage for many years until death do you part.  When the marital conflicts Baltimore experiences affect you and your family, consider the mediation process in order to keep communication open, honest, and productive.

Mediators of Louise Phipps Senft & Associates/Baltimore Mediation believe in Better Process…Better Outcome.
