What To Expect From Mediation

How does mediation work in a family law case? The mediation process often unfolds with you and your spouse in separate rooms. The mediator initially meets with each of you to pinpoint disputes. After finding out more about your story, the mediator will work with both of you to reach a final agreement on contested issues, whether related to child custody and visitation or the division of community property.

Who can benefit from mediation? Mediation works well for most and can offer substantial savings in a divorce. It is generally not appropriate, however, if allegations of domestic violence or an imbalance in power exist.

If you reach an agreement during mediation, then another lawyer would draw up the paperwork and assist with a court filing. When you resolve some issues, but others remain, litigation can then address those remaining disputes.

Keep Control In Your Own Hands

You are in the best position to know what will work for your family as you move to separate households. In litigation and trial, a judge decides all contested issues and usually neither side is happy with the outcome. Mediation is a tool that leaves control in your hands. It also offers a quicker resolution, so that you can move on with your life.
