Before your divorce case could be set for trial, family courts will send all your divorce cases to mediation. You have 45 days to carry out this mediation from when the court orders you. Mediation is an excellent alternative to the costly and lengthy process of divorce court proceedings, and it’s a method for divorcing spouses to find lasting solutions to family issues that need to be resolved.
At Positive Solutions Divorce Services, we offer mediation services as an option for people seeking a divorce. Our mediators guide couples through several family matters so that when the mediation is concluded, spouses will finalize their dispute.
Mediation is a cost-effective way of resolving family law disputes without needing extensive litigation. Mediation enables couples to work together with the help of a family lawyer to resolve their dispute. It allows the couples to have total control over the outcome of their divorce case rather than going to court. Mediation is typical for couples to achieve the best out for their case.
What Does A Divorce Mediator Do?
A divorce mediator is a person trained to help couples with family dispute resolution. The mediator can be a licensed family law lawyer or a divorce attorney who can perform the following tasks:
- Presents information about the legal system
- Promotes communication between the parties
- Identifies options for solving divorce issues
- Describes how attorneys or judges may view issues
- Fair discussions on child support or spousal support
- Refers the couple to another expert for more help
- Asks questions to make communication between both spouses clear
Understanding The Process Of Mediation
A mediator is selected to help you negotiate a fair settlement to your divorce. It allows you to resolve any differences you have with your spouse with a mediator who doesn’t have an interest in the outcome of your divorce case. A mediator can’t give you legal advice or force you to agree to anything.
At Positive Solutions Divorce Services, our goal is to work out a favorable agreement for your divorce case. We provide mediation service for the following issues:
- Spousal Support
- Child Support and Custody
- Division of marital property
- Execution of Court Judgments or Orders
- Dissolution of Marriage with or without children
- Non-Court Ordered and Court Ordered mediations
- Other family issues related matters
What Are The Benefits Of Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation can save divorcing couples time and money by not going through the court proceedings. It allows you to maintain total control over the crucial issues in your divorce case and avoid the courts having a say in the matter. Therefore, you and your spouse can discuss divorce issues openly and with dignity without concern that what you say or discuss will later be used against you.
At Positive Solutions Divorce Services, our legal team has experience in the family court procedure, and we would love the opportunity to help you through divorce mediation. Contact us at (888) 779 – 8777 for a divorce mediation service in Hamilton.
