You can hire a lawyer and go to divorce court. It will cost you thousands or tens of thousands of dollars, take years to settle and then in all probability you and the other party will settle in the court house halls. About 90% of all cases are settled before trial. Part of the reason is that after long, drawn out battles, both parties are fed up, but probably no longer angry or emotional and just want the whole mess to go away. Everything you can do in court, you can do in divorce mediation. The mediated agreements provide a full range of solutions including custody, child support, spousal support, division of property, and tax consequences.

Amicable Outcome.

When you dissolve your marriage, you do not dissolve your family. Divorce Mediation is the right fit for couples looking for peaceful and amicable means of closure to their marital union. When approached this way, it creates an opportunity to respectfully, confidentially, efficiently, and cost effectively resolve issues without added stress and frustration. The final mediated agreement, when signed, is a binding legal contract.

Divorce court, the conventional reaction to separation and divorce, can be an expensive and burdensome process. The adversarial description of litigation can also generate a great deal of anxiety. Divorce mediation is increasingly becoming accepted as appropriate and effective first-line response for families in transition. Even though legal proceedings may have begun, mediation remains an option within the process up to the point where the Court makes a decision.  Mediation also has the advantage of being a confidential process. It is done on a “without prejudice” basis, that is, the negotiations assumed in mediation are confidential.

It is preferable if the parties sign a mediated Settlement Agreement after each person has received independent legal advice to discuss the ramification of their agreement. Once a Settlement Agreement is filed with the Court, it becomes a binding and enforceable legal document and public record.
