What Is Divorce Mediation?

Not every divorce needs to be settled in court. If you want to avoid public court proceedings, divorce mediation might be right for you. A mediator is a third party that can help you come to an agreement with your ex-partner without resorting to messy court proceedings.

Please contact our law office today with any additional questions. Here are a few reasons our divorce attorneys recommend divorce mediation.

Understanding Divorce Mediation

Stay In Control

Unlike arbitration, you retain the right during mediation to disagree to a settlement. This means that you don’t have to worry about a mediator passing a ruling you don’t understand. Our divorce attorney will make sure you’re prepared before going into mediation so you know what to expect.

During divorce mediation, the mediator will try to find a resolution that works for both parties. This means that you and your ex-spouse will need to compromise to find a solution that works for both parties. Any agreement made during divorce mediation will be recorded for future reference.

Maintain Privacy

We understand the divorce process is stressful, which is why we often recommend mediation so you’re more likely to reach quick agreements. One of the main benefits of divorce mediation is that you are able to avoid court proceedings.

Many of our clients appreciate being able to keep private family matters out of the public eye. A mediator is trained to act neutral while settling disputes. This means that you can count on them to be honest and fair, without an agenda.

Get Help from a Third Party

By choosing divorce mediation, you don’t have to worry about being sandbagged or coerced into an agreement that isn’t fair to you. While mediators can be persuasive, they don’t work for either you or your ex-spouse. Instead, a mediator is a neutral party. We offer mediation services so you can expedite the divorce process and create a balanced outcome that doesn’t unfairly favor one party over the other.

Protect Your Relationships

It’s easy for people to feel confrontational or defensive in a court setting, which is why we offer mediation services to our clients. Our divorce lawyer knows from experience that a neutral comfortable setting could be all you need to come up with a solution with your ex-spouse.

Since most married couples share children, it’s important that both parents be civil after the divorce. However, it’s hard to be civil when one party is resentful of the other. A mediator can help you and your ex-spouse come up with a solution that works for both of you.
