Mediation Attorneys


When handling family issues, emotions can sometimes run high and miscommunications can happen. If you are approaching a divorce, separation, or child custody modification, reach out to a qualified legal mediator in South Carolina. Even if you get along with your current spouse or co-parent, it can be nice to have an unbiased third party to keep your interactions smooth and efficient. For those hoping to avoid lengthy and stressful court battles, mediation can provide a solution that is safe, compassionate, and surprisingly effective. While mediation isn’t right for everyone, it is a wonderful option for couples looking to solve their family legal issues without the hostility.


At the Fender Law Firm we provide comprehensive family mediation services in the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit, including Beaufort and the surrounding counties, and we can assist you with finding amicable resolutions for your divorce or child custody issues.  You can rely on us to moderate your discussions while suggesting alternative approaches to solving the issues.  We emphasize cooperation and civility over anger and aggression.  Many couples find that they are able to come to an agreement on their asset division and child/pet custody through mediation and avoid the street of litigation altogether.
