What Is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation is an effective process for achieving mutual agreements between spouses with less conflict, time, and expense. Mediation is especially beneficial for resolving emotional issues, such as child custody or alimony. Mediation provides spouses more control over the decision-making process and outcome through guidance from a trained mediator who provides structure to the conversations and negotiations, identifies issues and priorities, and offers alternative solutions.

Mediation allows couples to find common ground, dissolve the marriage with little conflict, and maintain familial relationships, which is especially beneficial when couples are parents, business partners, or intend to maintain contact following the divorce. Mediation is usually voluntary, though it can be court-ordered in contentious divorces or when disputes arise over certain issues.

What Does a Divorce Mediator Do?

Mediators are neutral facilitators who help open lines of communication between couples to discuss all aspects of divorce, such as child custody and support, alimony, and division of assets.

Mediators do not represent either party, though including your lawyer to advise you when concerns arise is often beneficial. At Tune Law Group, LLC, our knowledgeable mediation lawyers guide our clients before, during, and after mediation. Our legal team offers clients the benefit of skilled representation and experienced guidance throughout the mediation process.

Do I Need a Lawyer During Divorce Mediation?

Spouses control the mediation process and choose whether to include their lawyers or engage in private meetings with counsel. Lawyers are experienced in mediation and are often trained mediators themselves. Benefits of including your lawyer in mediation include:

  • Providing objective advice and clarifying legal requirements and ramifications;
  • Making the process more efficient by answering questions as they come to mind;
  • Equalizing the balance of power in cases involving intimidation or one spouse with greater knowledge of finances, assets, and marital holdings;
  • Offering insight into the court’s view and potential rulings during the trial;
  • Ensuring your legal rights are protected.

Agreements can dissolve if one or both spouses do not fully understand the legal ramifications. Solid agreements can be achieved more quickly if correct and relevant legal information is gathered from counsel present during discussions. If not present, it is best practice to include a condition requiring your lawyer to review and discuss the agreement before you commit to the terms.

What Are the Benefits of Using a Divorce Mediation Lawyer?

Divorce mediation provides an amicable alternative to a long and expensive legal battle. With the assistance of a divorce mediator, divorcing couples may enjoy benefits such as:

  • Reaching a more cost-efficient solution;
  • Avoiding expensive litigators and experts;
  • Reducing emotional stress;
  • Putting children’s best interests first;
  • Setting a good example for children and maintaining familial relationships;
  • Reaching faster and mutually beneficial agreements.

Spouses must be willing to reach a mutual agreement for mediation to be effective, though some couples cannot achieve a mutual resolution. In such instances, we provide clients with the additional benefits of skilled representation for litigation or arbitration. Our Whitehouse Station divorce mediation lawyers aim to obtain the best possible outcome for every case we handle.

How Much Does Mediation Cost?

Mediation is typically a less costly option than courtroom divorces. Mediation takes significantly less time, and some mediators do not charge retainer fees. If court-ordered, the first two hours are usually free (which will involve preparation for mediation). After the first session, continued mediation is no longer required if an agreement is reached. If not, the spouses can keep negotiating and paying the mediator’s standard rates.
