Facing a divorce or child custody battle is a daunting task. But there is a way to make it through the process without spending an exorbitant amount of time and money.
Through mediation a trained mediator sits down with both parties and guides you through the process of making decisions. The mediator will not make those decisions for you nor will they rule on the merits of either party’s position. Instead, the mediator will help you through the process of crafting a unique Marital Settlement Agreement that suits your specific needs.
Mediation is a great choice for parties who have children. Through mediation, you are able to design a parenting time plan, which works for you rather than leaving it to a judge to decide.
Mediation is beneficial for those parties who have family businesses and want to forgo costly business valuations.
Mediation allows you to come through the divorce process without fighting in court. It provides parties with a compromise solution specifically tailored for your situation.
By signing a Marital Settlement Agreement through mediation, the parties are then able to save time and money in the court process.
There are many people who claim to be able to serve as mediators but it is important to find someone who has the education and experience in family law to properly conduct the mediation and prepare a Marital Settlement Agreement.
