Mediation Can Offer You A Faster and Simpler Way to Divorce

Divorce is a complex process, and the emotional strain that it can have on every member of your family is significant. If you are facing the prospect of divorce and are dreading the thought of litigation, stress and complex disputes, there could be a better option for you. Mediation is an alternative method of dispute resolution, and it offers you a way to walk through your divorce on your own terms.

Mediation is a way to resolve conflict through discussions and negotiations with a neutral third party overseeing all conversations. This allows you more control over the final details of your divorce order without ever stepping foot inside the courtroom. While mediation is not the right choice in every situation, Terry L. Hart, Attorney at Law, will ensure you know all your options and will help you make choices that are in your best interests.

Why Should I Consider This Approach to My Divorce?

Terry Hart is not a mediator, but he is a divorce lawyer dedicated to finding the best solutions for his clients. Texas law requires that couples go to mediation before they move on to have a final trial, but it is possible and even beneficial to settle your divorce in mediation. Mediation only works when both parties remain committed to the process and allow the mediator to provide guidance through discussions. Many couples facing divorce find mediation to be a positive choice because of the following benefits it provides:

  • It allows parents to address any special needs or unique concerns that may affect custody and visitation.
  • It is less expensive than having a disputed trial, and it takes less time to complete.
  • You and your soon-to-be-ex spouse will have more control over the final details of the order.
  • It reduces the chance that a judge will make an unexpected ruling and leave you with an order that does not suit you or your family.

With mediation, you are not dependent on the decisions of a court. Even if you do not get along with your spouse, mediation is possible if both parties are willing to take a practical and cooperative approach to the divorce. Mr. Hart can further explain how to settle your divorce at this stage and avoid the extra costs and emotional strain often associated with litigation.

In mediation, a third party will facilitate conversations and guide two opposing parties toward a beneficial and workable resolution. This person will help you and your spouse come to agreements. This process is generally more peaceful and faster than having a final trial.
