Bartonville / Lantana Divorce Lawyers
Need to know the difference between traditional litigation vs. collaborative law? Are you thinking about mediation? Read more on the difference options you have to finalize your divorce.
Mediation is a process whereby the parties in a civil lawsuit, including divorce cases, can meet in the privacy of the office of a neutral person, called a mediator, who is experienced in the art of negotiation whose job is to facilitate an amicable and fair settlement between the parties in lieu of a traditional trial setting. The process is almost always much less expensive than traditional litigation.
In a divorce, there are a number of issues the parties must address in order to get the Court to issue them a Divorce Decree. During mediation, whatever the nature of the issue, each issue is addressed, one at a time, by the mediator until all issues have been covered and the couple has made agreements, decisions or disclosures that are acceptable and fair to each other.
Once the overall agreement is reached by the parties, the parties and/or their attorneys draft a Mediated Settlement Agreement which is binding and enforceable as a contract.
