Creative Solutions For Divorce & Family Law Cases
Mediation is a method of resolving divorce and custody disputes without a trial. This allows the parties involved in the dispute to create a personalized solution for their issues. The divorce lawyers at The Branch Law Firm have experience on both sides of the mediation process. Not only do they attend mediation with their clients but they also provide mediation services to attorneys and to pro se parties. We can help you resolve complicated divorce and custody issues without court interference.
What Is Mediation?
Mediation is a private and confidential way to resolve your case in a way that is often more affordable than the costs of preparing for a long, messy, public trial. It can also spare you and your children from appearing in court and being cross-examined.
A trained mediator can assist you with:
- Family law matters
- Child custody agreements
- Domestic disputes
- Child support and alimony agreements
- Divorce mediation
- Dispute resolutions
Resolving these issues through mediation can not only cut down your legal expenses and prevent court interference in your divorce, but it can also leave you and your ex-spouse with a more amicable relationship. Contentious divorces can be exceptionally hard on both parties, especially when they have children together and will need to interact with each other for the foreseeable future.
How to Prepare for Mediation
More people are choosing to mediate than ever before because it is both cost-effective and timesaving. Still, it is highly recommended that you perform your due diligence and prepare accordingly. While no mediation case is ever identical, we have created a list of recommendations that will prepare you for your upcoming session:
- If applicable, speak with your lawyer prior to your visit
- Create a list of goals, both short and long-term, that you feel will have the potential to benefit both parties
- If children are involved, propose a parenting plan
- Create a list of questions or concerns for either the mediator or the other party member
- Expect the unexpected and remember that transparency will help the mediation process go quicker and smoother.
We pride ourselves in helping families achieve alternative resolutions to their issues, no matter how complex. Speak with our mediation attorney today for more information on how you can prepare for your upcoming session.
