Divorce Mediation, Personal Injuries Settlements, Property Disputes & More

Every Civil Mediation case is different, but typically, the process follows six main steps. First, the mediator kicks off the session with some introductory remarks, and then, each party gets a chance to share their perspective on the matter. Next, the mediator will guide the conversation in order to help pinpoint the issues and obstacles in the way of the settlement. After that, negotiations will begin, and the mediator will work with the parties to explore options. Finally, when an agreement is reached, a formal written draft and signed by all parties involved.
The mediator will not make final decisions as reaching a mutually agreed upon outcome is in the hands of both parties. Call us at (806) 806-2571 for an out-of-court solution.

Divorce Mediation

While it is often believed that getting a divorce must involve hiring an attorney, this is simply not true. There is no law in place that requires individuals to involve lawyers in the process of resolving terms for divorce.

All too common do couples undergo their divorce by hiring attorneys, but mediation is a cost-effective solution that can help keep things civil. In divorce cases, mediation offers a non-confrontational approach to resolving disputes, guided by a neutral and compassionate mediator. The mediator’s objective is to assist divorcing couples in finding solutions outside of the courtroom.

Mediation serves as an excellent option for those pursuing an uncontested divorce. It enables couples to sidestep conflicts and resolve their issues in a friendlier manner. Ultimately, mediation tends to uphold the dignity of each party and circumvent the anxiety of family court litigation.

While the advantages of mediating divorce are plentiful, some of the most significant may not be immediately apparent. There is a considerable cost savings compared to traditional lawyer-driven divorces, where expenses can quickly accumulate through court trials and hearings. Additionally, divorce agreements reached through mediation tend to be more equitable and acceptable since they are mutually agreed upon by both parties, eliminating the sense of one spouse “winning” at the other’s expense.

Mediated divorces are also often better for any children involved. Parents collaborate to address their children’s best interests, creating a non-adversarial environment that encourages agreement, enhances communication, and establishes a foundation for constructive long-term co-parenting relationships.

Civil Cases That Mediation Can Resolve

  • Uncontested Divorce
  • Property Disputes
  • Personal Injuries
  • Contract Disputes
  • Landlord-Tenant Issues
