Mediators do not offer any legal advice and do not act
in the capacity of legal counsel.
If you have legal questions please seek an attorney.
Mediation is a successful tool in resolving the issues of divorce including child custody, child support, visitation schedules and division of property. It is faster and less expensive than formally litigating these issues in court. Because you and your spouse are in control of the final agreement, it can be customized to meet your individual needs.
Keep in mind that any agreement that is reached would need to fall within the standards for the state of Texas as it relates to an equitable division of property, the financial support of any minor children, and the best interest of the children in order to be approved by the courts.
As a mediator, I will help open the lines of communication and help you and your spouse discuss the issues of your divorce in a healthy manner. Divorce can be a stressful event, and I will do my best to reduce that stress by preventing the further decay of your family relationship.
Mediation Before the Petition for Divorce is Filed:
You do not need to hire an attorney or file a petition for divorce before mediation. You and your spouse would meet with me as your mediator and once a settlement agreeent is reached, that agreement would be taken to an attorney for review, put into a legal fomat, and filed with the court.
Mediation After the Petition for Divorce is Filed:
If you and your spouse have already filed a petition for divorce, each of your attorneys would attend the session with you. Once a settlement agreement is reached between you and your spouse, that agreemet would be put into a legal format and filed with the court.
Gathering and organizing your financial information can be a lot of work. If you complete this before your first meeting with an attorney or mediator, it will help to keep your expenses at a minimum. Doing your pre-divorce homework will also give you and your spouse a better understanding of your assets and liabilities when negotiating a settlement.
