Mediation: a positive, problem-solving process.

For 39 years, Mary Kay has been devoted to helping families throughout Nebraska. Mary Kay and her team are dedicated to providing high-quality and compassionate assistance to you as you navigate your contested or amicable divorce, family law proceeding, contested will, or guardianship.

Mediation Guidance

Litigation may be necessary, but trials are destructive to families and children often bear the consequences of animosity created by litigation.  As a trained mediator, Mary Kay believes that problem-solving strategies can help bring about resolutions in even the most contested and complicated family law, guardianship, estate, or divorce cases. Mediation can help the family move forward in a positive direction.

Mary Kay provides mediation services in an effort to help families find resolutions to issues such as divorce, guardianship, wills, estates, property division, alimony, paternity, custody, and parenting plans.  Mediation allows the interested parties to explore options and seek out a mutually agreed-upon, collaborative resolution with the assistance of an experienced neutral mediator.

Throughout mediation, Mary Kay will work with you to ensure that your session stays focused on the issues, moves in the direction of a positive resolution, and that your voice is heard. Family dynamics can be challenging and Mary Kay supports the involvement of family members, counselors, and attorneys to the extent the parties to the mediation agree.

Detailed Assistance

Mary Kay litigated divorce and custody cases for over 25 years and she will bring that experience to your family law mediation.  Mary Kay’s guidance through your mediation is designed to help you find resolutions to the issues relating to your matter, including:

  • Uncontested and amicable divorce;
  • Contested divorce;
  • DIY (do-it-yourself) divorce;
  • Property division and equitable distribution (division of debts and assets);
  • Child custody and support;
  • Spousal support/alimony;
  • Parenting Plans;
  • Guardianships;
  • Will Contests.

Positive Problem-Solving Process

Mary Kay can assist you with your “do-it-yourself” or “friendly” divorce by providing a short educational session and resources.  During the mediation session, you will work on resolving matters.  Upon doing so, Mary Kay will draft the agreements you reached into legal documents that you may submit to the court.  Mary Kay can answer questions about the divorce process, but does not provide legal or financial advice.  Mary Kay does not serve as an attorney and she recommends you obtain legal and financial guidance and advice from professionals of your choosing.

Mary Kay’s experience in the courtroom, coupled with her mediation training and experience, gives her the ability to offer the insight you need to understand what you can expect from your proceedings and your options for finding resolutions.
