Dann Johns, Divorce Mediator & Attorney

I help spouses divorce peacefully, through divorce mediation. Working together we can complete a Pennsylvania mediation divorce without setting foot in court.

These are my ideals as a divorce mediator:

  1. Peace. I am committed to peaceful resolution of all divorce issues.
  2. Impartiality. I do not pick sides for or against either spouse.
  3. Kindness. I am kind to both spouses.

Divorce mediator and Pennsylvania lawyer

Not all divorce mediators are lawyers. Because I am a Pennsylvania divorce attorney as well as a divorce mediator, I can assist spouses with their entire Pennsylvania mediation divorce.

Using my 12 years of experience as a full-time divorce mediator, I help wives and husbands calmly discuss and decide terms of their divorce. During divorce mediation sessions:

  • I make sure spouses discuss all necessary divorce topics.
  • I provide important information (legal, tax, financial, parenting) so each spouse may make informed decisions.
  • I stay neutral, making it easier for spouses to discuss and decide matters.

When all terms of agreement have been decided, I use my 35 years of experience as a Pennsylvania divorce lawyer to:

  • draft Pennsylvania divorce documents, making the terms decided in divorce mediation legally binding,
  • assist with filing for a Pennsylvania divorce decree, when both spouses are ready to officially change their marital status.

Timeline for a Pennsylvania mediation divorce

Divorce mediator who lowers the cost of divorce

Before I limited my law practice to divorce mediation, I handled courtroom divorces for 23 years. In court cases, I saw other attorneys charge fees as high as thirty thousand dollars for divorce! I saw how fighting between spouses drove lawyer fees ever higher.

Divorce does not have to be expensive.

Husbands and wives who work with a mediator often avoid ugly and expensive courtroom battles. About 9 in 10 divorcing couples reach an out-of-court agreement in mediation.

A mediation divorce costs less than the average Pennsylvania divorce

Divorce mediator who empowers parents

As a parent and grandparent myself, I deeply respect the decision-making role of parents. Mothers and fathers know their family better than anyone. In a mediation divorce, it's parents who make all the decisions about child custody and child support, not judges or lawyers.

I am confident that parents, with just the right amount of help from a divorce mediator, can divorce on their own terms. I believe that parents who are willing to mediate can solve almost any problem. In my practice, about 9 in 10 parents who try divorce mediation reach agreement on custody, support, distribution of marital property, and other important matters.
