Family Law Mediation
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) which is increasingly recognized throughout Texas and the United States for its ability to help disputing parties achieve efficient and cost-effective resolutions.
Family Law Mediation And Divorce Mediation In Texas
Mediation allows both parties to sit down with a neutral third-party mediator to discuss the details of the divorce. Through this process, the entire divorce agreement will be negotiated and agreed upon by the spouses with a final proposal put together at the end. A judge will then review the proposal and finalize it to complete the divorce.
This process is much less expensive and less contentious for all parties involved. It provides the space and facilitator many couples need to brainstorm creative solutions to their own divorce issues. The resulting agreements rarely require enforcement measures later as both spouses had equal buy-in regarding the final outcome. In addition, it helps the two spouses maintain a working relationship, which is particularly important if they must then work together to raise their children.
If the two are unable to arrive at an agreement during the mediation process, the divorce will have to go through the traditional avenues, including the possibility of litigation.
