Mediation in divorce is an alternative process in which a neutral third party, a mediator, assists divorcing spouses in reaching an agreement on unresolved issues. These issues usually involve the division of their assets, alimony, child support, child visitation, and child custody.
Attending a mediation session offers both spouses several benefits when compared to a litigated divorce proceeding, some of which are:
- Mediation is less costly than trial,
- Mediation can be less stressful ,
- Mediations can be less demanding than trial,
- Mediations are more predictable than a trial,
- Mediations are confidential,
- Mediations give both spouses an opportunity to express their views,
- Less time consuming than a trial, and
- Less confrontational
The mediator is a neutral third party that encourages healthy communication between the spouses in order to help them develop an agreement that is mutually acceptable. If an agreement is successfully formed during the mediation, the trial process is avoided.
It is important to note that the mediator is not a judge and is unable to make final decisions. The mediator does not represent either party nor will the mediator give either party legal advice. The ultimate goal of the mediator is to help the spouses come to a written agreement that is fair and acceptable for all parties involved.
Having access to sound legal advice is important, even in mediation, because the finalized agreement created in the mediation will be enforceable against both parties once approved by the court. Also, the goal of the mediator is to form a reasonable agreement between the parties, not to give either party legal advice.
For a mediation agreement to be binding and enforceable, both parties must agree to the settlement. Once finalized and signed by both parties, it is then submitted to the court for approval. Once approved by the court, the mediation agreement becomes a court order. The attorneys at Mills & Anderson are knowledgeable and can assist you during your mediation.
