Interested in avoiding court appearances and the associated legal cost? Consider mediation!
Mediation is a more civil and less expensive way to legally end a marriage rather than going to trial. The goal of mediation is to balance each spouse’s needs in dividing the marital assets and debts, resolving child custody issues, and determining child support and spousal maintenance amounts.
A proper mediation is designed to enable the spouses to reach a fair agreement with the help of their attorneys. In the end, mediation can be a faster and less expensive way to resolve any family law issue.
The key to success in a Mediation is that both parties have to understand and accept that the Mediator takes no sides. They have no skin in the game and their only goal is to help both parties reach an agreement. It's also important to understand that agreeing to Mediation does not mean giving up control.
