Jan Walden is an attorney who cares about your family. She has worked with divorcing and never married parents for many years both as an attorney and mediator. Her private practice is dedicated to the peaceful settlement of family conflict through mediation.
In the mediation process Jan Walden can help you and your spouse explore the options available when faced with divorce. If you agree to divorce, she can guide you through gathering the necessary information for fairly dividing the marital assets and paying the marital debts. She can help you develop a parenting plan that is in the best interest of your children, specifically designed for the particular circumstances and needs of the whole family, while focusing on the developmental needs of your children and the preservation of a safe, nurturing relationship with both parents. Jan also works with parents after the divorce as well as never married parents when there is any issue about the children, including child support.

If parties have reached a financial settlement on their own and agree to a plan for their children, Jan can serve as the attorney for one of the parties for an uncontested divorce.
The mediation process can safely be started prior to each party paying hundreds or thousands of dollars to retain an attorney. Attorneys who are supportive of the mediation process can then be retained to provide an independent legal judgment and process the appropriate documents through the Court for an uncontested divorce.
If a divorce has already been filed, mediation can successfully be used at anytime if both parties are willing to meet in an effort to reach agreement on unresolved issues. Mediation sessions can be held with or without attorneys present. If attorneys are not present, the parties will have an opportunity to consult with attorneys to review the agreements reached in mediation. The sooner the parties reach anacceptable agreement, the less the financial and emotional cost to the family.
Jan’s office is located in the Vanderbilt/West End area near the I 440 interchange.
In our country over half of first marriages and a greater number of second marriages end in divorce. What happens between marriage and divorce? The answer to that question is as varied as the couples who marry. If couples are unwilling or unable to continue the marital relationship, the process of ending the relationship should not be more painful than the marriage itself. Divorce can be emotionally and financially devastating to families and can have negative effects on family members lasting far into the future. Mediation is a safe, private, cost effective process. The parties commit to reaching an outcome that is as fair as possible to the whole family. They are able to explore financial options and focus on the future care and support of their children in a problem-solving environment. Parents are able to learn to relate in a different way so they can successfully parent their children after the divorce. There is A BETTER WAY...MEDIATION!
