The divorce process can be lengthy and complex, and it can involve a wide variety of issues related to your finances, property and children. You may want to complete your divorce as amicably as possible, but doing so can be difficult, especially if your relationship with your spouse has broken down to the point where the two of you are unlikely to be able to have calm, civil discussions about the issues you need to resolve. In these cases, you may want to consider mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution that can help you reach a divorce settlement without the need for litigation. At SBK Law Group, our attorneys understand the complicated legal and emotional issues that can affect divorce cases. We provide mediation services to divorcing spouses, and we can help you understand the best ways to resolve your disputes and reach a settlement that you and your spouse can both agree on.
During the mediation process, you and your spouse will work together with a neutral, third-party mediator to identify the outstanding issues and reach mutually acceptable agreements on how to resolve these matters. The mediator will not represent either party, and they will not make any decisions for you. Instead, they will help you understand your legal requirements, facilitate discussions in which you both can express your needs and desires, and guide you toward reaching compromises and creating a settlement that will allow you to finalize your divorce. Mediation offers a number of benefits, including:
