What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Mediator?
Mediation requires cooperation. It can only be accomplished if you and
your spouse are able to work together with the assistance of a neutral
third party. There are many benefits to hiring a mediator in various
legal separation circumstances. As your experienced divorce lawyer, I can help you make
important decisions on issues that must be decided. Some of these issues
that I can help you discuss and negotiate include:
If you choose to enter into mediation, then as your Roseville mediation
attorney, I can ensure that both parties' rights are protected and
that an equitable agreement can be established. I underwent a 40-hour
training course with the Northern California Mediation Center (NCMC) and
have since provided valuable mediation services. My experience as a mediator
and my 20 years of experience as a family law attorney enable me to offer
clients excellent insight into their divorce situations. Through mediation,
for example, I can help you pursue a less-expensive and less time-consuming
path to divorce. By hiring a mediation attorney, the process will be much
less emotionally difficult.
How a Roseville Divorce Lawyer Can Help You
Filing for a divorce is a life-changing decision and one that should never
come lightly. However, once you are in the place where you feel as though
it is the best decision for you (and perhaps your family) then contacting
a family lawyer is going to be the next best decision. Even when you and
your almost-ex are willing to work out a divorce settlement together,
utilizing the guidance of a skilled legal professional is going to be
what saves you both time, money, and maybe even a little stress as well.
Even though mediation is a means of staying out of the courtroom, a lawyer
can offer you very specific guidance in order to make sure you are making
the best decisions for yourself. How then, can an attorney assist your
case as you go divorce through mediation?
- A lawyer will help you to evaluate the options available to you when choosing
how to go about mediation and even instruct you on the best way to encourage
your spouse to participate if they are not yet on board.
- A Roseville divorce attorney can play the role of a "law coach"
in your life to make sure that your decisions are going to be best in
terms of financial matters, property concerns and even in regards to your children.
- Having a lawyer on your side will also enable you to have a better ideal
at the possible outcomes of the decisions you and your spouse make and
warn you about the varying ramifications they may have on your life.
- Lastly, a lawyer can handle any documents and agreements that need to be
drafted in order to make sure that the process is completed in an efficient
manner and that your wellbeing has been guarded as you prepare to sign
a legally binding contract.
Going to trial can be an expensive and hectic way to handle divorce. Trial
is sometimes the necessary and appropriate method, but it places the decision-making
power in the hands of a judge. Details of divorce are important issues
that will impact your future and should be made by you and your current
spouse. A mediator can help you and the other party see beyond the differences
that cause the animosity. I can help the two of you make the important
life-changing decisions on your own so that you don't have to appear
before a judge. If you are interested in learning more about how divorce
mediation can help you in this situation, please feel free to speak with my firm.
