What Is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a prominent part of many divorce proceedings. The traditional divorce process is inherently adversarial with both parties assuming opposing positions and strategies advocated by their lawyer. Very often the Court’s determinations of the issues of a couple’s dissolution are NOT what either party wanted or imagined. In this mediation process, you and your spouse can control the process. We find that when couples create and help fashion the terms of their own dissolution they create an agreement that they are more committed to keeping therefore reducing the occurrence of further relief or intervention. This process also enables the couple to fashion a framework for their relationship and communication in the future and to develop the necessary tools for resolving future differences. This is especially true and important when there are children involved.
Depending upon the complexity of the issues involved, mediation can take as little as a few hours. Of course, where numerous complex issues are involved, the process can take significantly longer. During the mediation process, couples come to an agreement about issues such as child custody, support, and property division. Once the couple has settled all the above mentioned issues, our office prepares a memorandum of agreement outlining all of the terms that the couple has agreed upon. The clients can take the agreement to their own attorneys for an independent review and/or for the divorce itself.
