Separation & Divorce

In Switzerland, most divorces are obtained by joint request rather than by lawsuit. As experts in family law and mediation, we accompany couples in conflict and support them in jointly working out divorce conventions. By reaching an out-of-court agreement with a mediator, the parties save both court costs and legal fees. Experience also shows that mutually agreeable solutions are better accepted by the parties than judgments.

Frequently asked questions

How much does mediation cost?

Mediation is charged on an hourly basis. At Expertiva AG this is CHF 240.00 per hour plus VAT. The first hour is always entirely charged, thereafter per quarter of an hour or part thereof.

How long does mediation take?

A mediation process takes different lengths of time. For separations and divorces, 5 - 8 sessions are often required. For business mediation and succession planning, usually more.

Who must be present?

All parties concerned and at least one mediator should be at the negotiating table. If desired, a second mediator may also be present.

How long does a session last?

A session usually lasts between 90 and 120 minutes. Longer sessions are possible but only conditionally useful depending on the setting.

Can I stop a mediation?

Yes. Unlike court proceedings, participation in mediation is voluntary by all parties and can be stopped at any time.

Can I be demanded to make a settlement?

No. A basic principle of mediation is openness to solutions. In principle, it is also possible that no solution is found.

May my lawyer be present?

Yes. The parties may also bring their lawyers to a mediation. It is also possible that the final agreement reached will be reviewed by the lawyer.

Do I need a lawyer?

No. The mediator guarantees impartiality to the parties and encourages communication and development of solution options among them.
