Rockwall Divorce Attorney Offers Counsel
In some situations, divorce mediation can be a great alternative to long
and drawn-out court cases. Mediation requires you and your spouse to work
with a neutral third party mediator to reach amicable resolutions on all
aspects of your divorce. Through a mediator, you can mutually agree to
division of assets and debts and
visitation as well as any other needs that are required to be addressed in your divorce
decree. In some Texas counties, mediation is required prior to family
law hearings in courts. If you are considering mediation, retain me to be your
Rockwall divorce attorney.
Mediation tends to be less expensive than a traditional divorce case. With
no judge hovering over you to determine the outcome of your case, you
and your spouse can take as long as needed to reach agreements. Mediation
is also confidential, and no public record will be made about what is
happening between you, your spouse and your mediator. If you and your
spouse are able to reach a favorable agreement, the mediator will put
it in writing and the document will be signed. This document is legally
binding. If a resolution cannot be met, you may still have to go to court.
If you think that mediation may be right for you, contact my firm to get started.
Working with a Rockwall Divorce Attorney from Our Firm
Choosing to use mediation can be a huge relief for many individuals. Deciding
to use this form of divorce proceeding is often encouraged for families
who have been living apart or who agree that the relationship is irrevocably
damaged. It is not recommended for people who may be victims of
domestic violence, as their abuser may try to manipulate them during the proceedings. If
you think that mediation may be right for you and your family, consult
my firm as soon as possible. I can guide you throughout the entire process
and ensure that you reach an outcome that benefits both parties.
