What is mediation and is right for my divorce?
There are many legal complications surrounding divorce. The assets and
property of both spouses must be divided, child custody must be determined,
and even alimony must be settled on. Mediation is designed to protect
both spouses' rights in the divorce process and ensure a balanced
settlement is agreed upon. This form of alternative dispute resolution
can be very helpful for many divorcing parties.
Some basic benefits of mediation include:
- Often involves less legal fees
- Minimal court time if an agreement is settled on
- Faster divorce process
- Less emotional stress and frustrations
A mediator is an outside party that will guide both spouses through the
divorce process in a fair and ethical manner. While they oversee the agreement,
it is still helpful to have a legal professional who can ensure that the
agreement is fair for your particular situation. If children are involved
in a divorce, mediation will be mandatory. You may be ordered to mediate
by a judge, but this does not mean that an agreement will be settled on.
If neither party can compromise or agree to certain aspects, it may have
to go through the court.
It is very wise to review a settlement with your Nashville family law attorney
prior to signing it.
