Houston Divorce Mediation Attorney

What is Divorce Mediation?

Aside from court litigation, mediation is an alternate way to settle various family disputes, such as divorce, child custody, 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.

The Benefits of Mediation

There are a plethora of benefits to mediation. Since the mediator listens to what both parties have to say, he/she can arrive at 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.

The following are advantages of a Texas family law case mediation:

  • Advocates cooperation between both parties
  • Faster process than court litigation
  • Less expensive than court litigation
  • Less upsetting than court litigation
  • Purpose of coming to mutual agreement
  • Confidential service
  • Decisions made together have a better a chance of being fulfilled
  • Improves communication and relationship between you and your former spouse
