What is Mediation?
Houston Divorce Attorney
Aside from court litigation, mediation is an alternate way to settle various
family disputes, such as
child support, and
property division in an amicable manner. It is comprised of you and your lawyer, your spouse
and their lawyer, and the mediator, who may be an experienced family law
attorney, marriage counselor, social worker, or psychologist. The job
of the mediator is to assist you and your spouse come to a compromise
with both parties’ disagreements in a constructive way in order
to reach a “win-win” decision, as opposed to a “win-lose”
situation which is often the result of court litigation.
Benefits of Mediation
There are plethora of benefits to mediation. Since the mediator listens
to what both parties have to say, he/she can arrive to a creative and
customized solution to your case without the overwhelming stress of being
in court. However, if there is a history of abuse or domestic violence,
as well as allegations of both, then court litigation is necessary.
