Although courts often order conflicting parties to participate in mediation, it’s also possible to do it on your own, prior to going to court. Many opt for this option because it saves time and helps avoid a long and arduous trial.
Successful mediation can help you get through your divorce without going through the court proceedings. Uncontested divorces are usually less expensive and faster. A mediated settlement agreement can save you a huge sum of money and time. It can also speed up the process by allowing the judge to finalize the divorce without going through a trial.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Mediation?
In divorce mediation, the two parties meet with a neutral mediator to discuss the issues involved. This process can be done in an informal office setting.
A mediator can help you reach an agreement on the issues to finalize a Mediated Settlement Agreement that is legally binding. Unlike lawyers, mediators do not make decisions but rather play a facilitatory role to help partners understand their options.
Mediation services exist to make the complicated process smoother. As an experienced professional, I strive to help clients finalize the terms of a mutually beneficial settlement agreement.
Who Should Choose Divorce Mediation?
Please use what is on the site currently under the why mediation, if possible for this section. Although mediation can work for most couples, it is not for everyone. I encourage couples to assess the situation of their falling out to understand whether mediation is best for them.
If you have experienced domestic violence or fear for your children's safety, then you should not participate in mediation. You should seek professional help from a lawyer or another qualified source.
Some people who have been abused may find it beneficial to participate in a mediator's session. Others may find it traumatic to have to go through the experience of being a mediator, and they may prefer to negotiate with a lawyer.
Divorce mediation is a great option for all couples looking for an effective and mutually beneficial way to conclude the process.
How Does The Process Of Mediation Work?
The first step in the process is for both parties to agree to come to the table in good faith. This step can be initiated by reaching an agreement to mediate. After the parties agree to the terms of the agreement, the mediator will introduce themselves and explain the procedures of the mediation. Both parties are then given time to discuss their side of the dispute.
Different strategies are then used by the mediator to help the parties reach an agreement. While the mediator is talking to the parties, he or she can also speak to both sides. After the parties have agreed on their interests, the mediator helps them develop win-win solutions. This step is usually followed by the drafting of a settlement agreement.
