Divorce Mediation Lawyer Serving Fort Worth & Tarrant County
Carefully Working Toward Common Ground
Tarrant County judges expect parties to divorce suits to work with each other to resolve disputes outside of court. Mediation has become a common method of bringing the spouses together, guided by a lawyer who is a mediation professional who helps the parties see their way through obstacles to a fair settlement.
As an experienced divorce lawyer, I have seen couples come to a fair resolution over the most complex issues by using the mediation process effectively.
Divorce mediation is an effective strategy for couples who are willing and able to be flexible in their expectations. Each spouse is typically represented by their own legal counsel, with the mediator explaining how a court may rule on settlement proposals. If a written agreement is reached at the mediation session, parties are legally bound to the terms of the agreement, which must be drafted into a divorce decree and signed by a Judge. Upon “adjudication” the parties are bound to the agreement as a court judgment.
What Does Mediation Entail?
In most cases, mediation consists of one scheduled session of either a half day or full day, depending upon the issues to be worked out. The parties will have access to the mediator throughout the session, to seek advice about court procedures and rulings on similar issues in other divorces as well as to draw on the mediator’s creativity for solutions that may be outside the box of the usual court decisions.
