Many divorcing couples choose to resolve the critical issues outside of court through the process of mediation. Mediation is a form of dispute resolution that allows the two parties to bring all the important issues to the table for discussion and resolution, without the need for court intervention.
The process is confidential and voluntary, but both parties must be willing to communicate for a mediation to be effective. Mediators are trained in facilitating communication, and neutral. A divorce mediator is there to provide impartial guidance to both parties and to help them to draft an agreement. Once the crucial matters of child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, and property division are settled, and the agreement signed, the divorce process can move forward quickly.
If you are planning on taking part in a divorce mediation, get a crucial layer of protection by having your divorce lawyer participate in the process. You have rights and interests that must be protected. Talk to us about divorce mediation and legal representation in marriage dissolution. Agreements created in mediation often suit the circumstances and the two parties better than orders imposed by the court.
Using mediation to resolve a divorce can be a powerful and effective tool, but in some cases, litigation is, in the end, the only option. When one party makes unreasonable demands and will not compromise, taking the case to trial can make sense.
