Divorce can be a stressful affair, but sometimes the two parties involved are able to settle their differences in a more cooperative manner. If they are, settling a divorce through a mediation attorney rather than the courts may be a good option. This video explains what a person can expect while going through the divorce process.
Couples looking for a divorce can reach mediation in a variety of ways. It’s not always necessary and sometimes it isn’t effective. Generally, the two parties will work with an attorney to figure out if there are any disputes over property, debt, financial assets, custody of children, and more.
If there are points where the couple are not aligned, but the dispute is not so massive to require a court proceeding, then mediation can help. The mediator will be hired and settle differences in an impartial way.
It’s a good idea to bring your own personal attorney for the mediation because, again, the mediator is impartial. You need someone to be persuasive to you. The attorneys will prepare a mediation statement with their clients as a summary of the situation.
On the day of mediation, they will go over everything with you and your spouse along with the attorneys. They will hear out both sides and figure out the specifics of each dispute.
