Family Mediation Services

Thank you for this opportunity to introduce you to Family Mediation Services of Springfield, Missouri. 

Every week since opening on January 10th, 2004, I look forward to providing area families with alternatives when navigating a family court experience.  If during times of family difficulty and permanent change, words and phrases like options, fairness, control, privacy, respect, efficiency, less stressful, less costly, better for children, life changing, solution-focused, flexible and informal appeal to you, then please contact us first. 

We are a community resource committed to assisting couples and families at various times during the continuum of life.  Change, good or bad, is inevitable, and our professional staff helps people navigate the process with less frustration.

The mediator helps both people clarify needs, goals and values on paper, while focusing on the present and the future in an atmosphere that fosters respect, integrity and privacy.  Referrals are provided to attorneys and other professionals who will honor your mediated agreement and facilitate your desire for lower costs and a fast, efficient legal process.   

Our phone number is 417-883-8400, and our voice mail operates all day every day.  Every reasonable effort shall be made to handle messages as instructed by the caller, and special awareness shall be exercised to guard each caller’s confidentiality.  I look forward to answering your questions and assisting you through your conflict resolution experience.
