Offering Alternatives To Divorce Litigation
While some couples fight out their divorce in a courtroom, other options are available to couples who wish to avoid this conflict. Mediation offers divorcing couples the option to negotiate their divorce agreement, working together toward a resolution that is satisfactory to both parties.
At The Law Office of Marjorie Sher, I know that creating your own solution can help you maintain control over the decisions affecting your life and avoid the emotional and financial costs of a litigated divorce. I am a certified mediator and I help divorcing couples in Lake County work together to resolve their concerns rather than leaving important decisions about their family up to the court.
How Can Mediation Resolve Family Law Concerns?
Mediation is a voluntary process that can only proceed with the consent of both parties. It is available for married and unmarried people. In mediation, couples work together with the guidance of a mediator to make decisions about their divorce settlement, parenting plan and other important family law matters. The impartial mediator does not represent either spouse, but instead facilitates couples’ conversations and helps them make informed, practical and fair decisions.
In addition to helping couples maintain peace and avoid stress, mediation can also be less time-consuming and significantly less expensive than other options. The process of mediation may take between two and six hours, not including time to prepare the necessary legal documents.
