Serving Jefferson County and Surrounding Areas.
Trial can be costly of your time and money. Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution that allows for parties to settle their divorce or post-divorce issues outside of court using a certified mediator. In the most common form, mediation consists of five people: a certified mediator, the two spouses, and each spouse’s lawyer.
Through mediation, each spouse is awarded an opportunity to be heard as they express their concerns about the divorce settlement, property division, child custody and other issues. Contact our experienced Birmingham mediation lawyer today, we can help.
Things to know about mediation:
- Mediation is a voluntary process.
- Mediation involves getting all parties to think and discuss final resolution on all issues.
- Whatever happens, if the parties cannot reach agreement and decide to go to court, the mediator cannot testify about what was said in mediation. The discussions are confidential.
- The mediator facilitates discussion, but does not make decisions.
Mediation ensures that both spouses are given the time to express their concerns and offer suggestions for a negotiated settlement. Contact us if you need a divorce attorney to represent you in family law mediation.
