Mediation FAQ

Learn More from a Dallas Divorce Attorney

Going through a divorce can be a difficult process, as it often stirs up conflict within the family. If you and your spouse are considering a divorce, you may benefit from divorce mediation. For helpful information on the process of divorce mediation, take a look at our frequently asked questions below. If divorce mediation is something you're interested in, contact our Dallas divorce attorney for extensive counsel and assistance.

What is divorce mediation?
Divorce mediation provides spouses with a mediator who acts as a neutral third party and assists the couple in achieving a mutual positive outcome. No decisions are made by the mediator; they simply act as an aid in communication and negotiation.

Will the mediator meet with my spouse and I separately?
In most cases, it is up to your personal preference. If you are unsure what would be most beneficial for your unique circumstances, the mediator can provide greater insight into both separate and joint meetings.

Is there a difference between court-ordered mediation and private mediation?
Yes. Sometimes the court can require a couple to pursue divorce mediation due to the nature of the divorce. This typically occurs when custody or visitation issues are in question. Private mediation occurs more often when financial and property division issues are at stake.

Will divorce mediation cause me to sacrifice my legal rights?
Anytime mediation is involved, it is important to have a good understanding of your legal rights prior to signing anything or agreeing to a settlement. By obtaining the assistance of a mediator with extensive divorce knowledge, you can trust that your legal rights will remain secure.

Is mediation a quicker process than litigation?
In most cases, the answer is yes. Mediation can help couples resolve issues quickly, because there is a greater level of flexibility and control for each spouse. Mediation can last anywhere from one day to several months.

I'm worried mediation won't work. Then what?
If you choose to pursue mediation and are unable to come to a satisfactory agreement with your spouse, it is likely that your case will be resolved in court. The judge will then make any ultimate decisions about your divorce.

Divorce mediation can be an excellent way to obtain your desired results for both you and your spouse. Call a Dallas divorce attorney to begin your case evaluation!
