What is the Process of Divorce Mediation?

Going through a divorce can be extremely stressful and overwhelming. In order to make the process as easy as possible consider using mediation rather than the hassle of court appearances and litigation.

Mediation can be very beneficial for both spouses because the process becomes more civilized and can also save a lot of the expense that comes with court processes. Divorce mediation can handle all of the issues in a divorce including:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Alimony/ spousal support
  • Property division
  • Fathers' Rights
  • Visitation
  • Relocation

If you and your spouse are civil and on speaking terms consider teaming up with an Atlanta divorce attorney and approaching divorce mediation. Courts recognize the decisions made in divorce mediation as valid and can sign the Judgment of Divorce based on those agreements. Our firm handles private divorce mediation wherein the spouses will have a facilitated conversation. Each spouse will state their wants and needs and the mediator is present to guide the conversation in order to address all necessary aspects of the divorce. As the mediator guides the process each spouse will present their priorities while also being cooperative to the other party. By the end of the mediation agreements should have been made on every issue in order to form a divorce agreement.

The divorce mediation process is generally broken down into phases, including:

  • Initial meeting with an Atlanta divorce lawyer to express that you would like to start the divorce mediation process
  • The mediation attorney will then usually have individual sessions with each spouse in order to get a feeling of what their main priorities are before approaching joint mediation
  • Both parties and the mediator will meet for the joint session wherein the marital settlement agreement will be formed.

Once the process is done the court will sign off on the agreement and the settlement will become legally binding. If you have any questions about divorce mediation or how an Atlanta divorce attorney from Stadler Law Group, LLC can help do not hesitate to call today!
