There are varying types of divorce one can take, but no matter what form it is there is a toll that it takes on one or both of the parties. Divorces are one of the most painful experiences one can experience in life. To go with it, there are legal matters wrapped up in divorce and in some cases more questions than answers. Under a mediated divorce, a mediator works with you and your spouse to work through the various issues that come with a divorce. Resolution to some of those issues include:

  •        Child custody
  •        Taxes
  •        Financial issues
  •        Property allocation

Even though a mediator works with both parties, there is still a necessity to work with dedication and professional mediated divorce lawyers to ensure you know the expectations and you are meeting all the necessary paperwork. Divorce is undoubtedly a stressful situation; adding to the stress by not understanding what’s at stake can be more problematic. The dedicated family law attorneys at Ball Morse Lowe are here to guide you through the process.

It is critical that you have all the information on your side and be able to proceed through the legal process. Even through mediation, there are still important life factors that are essential to consider. Often questions about custody, money, and property come up. Our team will play a vital role in helping take your first steps in this process and guide you to the answers you might have.

What is the Divorce Mediator’s Role?

A mediator is often a neutral party. They are specially trained to help mediate and resolve the issues often wrapped up in a divorce. A mediator, however, is not a judge and cannot decide anything between the parties.

Because every mediated divorce is different, the actions may be slightly different but generally, the mediator can perform the following:

  1.     Ask both parties to retell their side of the story.
  2.     Ask pertinent questions that may not have been before about certain situations.
  3.     Talks through alternatives for conflict resolution.
  4.     Work through unique problem-solving techniques and ideas.
  5.     Facilitates communication between parties.

While this is not an exhaustive list, a mediator’s job is unique in and of itself. As the parties get divorced it is vital to understand your rights and responsibilities. Representation helps guide you through the sea of legal paperwork.

In some cases, mediation can be flexible allowing you to work through times with your mediator, as opposed to being set on a timeline by the judge. Though flexible, it is critical that you are informed and properly advised on when mediation happens and what to expect during mediation, and how to prepare for it. Though the context of these meetings is not in a courtroom the proper representation can protect you from unforeseen issues standing in your way.
