What if my Spouse Won't Cooperate With Mediation?

Mediation

When two parties cannot decide on important family law matters, they often think they have no choice but to go to court. Fortunately, many people have had success with mediation. This non-adversarial conflict resolution technique empowers people to resolve issues without aggressively litigating in court. Our clients find that successful mediation reduces the time, stress, and cost of deciding or settling matters while maintaining their privacy.
Our certified mediation attorneys can guide you through the process of settling divorce and post-divorce issues so you can put them behind you. You can use one of our mediators as a neutral third party or have us represent your interests during mediation. Contact us to learn more about the process.

Advantages of Mediation

Mediation has numerous advantages, including:

  • Deciding the terms
  • Reducing the costs
  • Avoiding stressful court hearings
  • Working on rebuilding your relationship for more productive co-parenting

Even if you currently have an adversarial relationship with the other party, mediation can be helpful. Additionally, it is non-binding, so you are not forced to sign an agreement unless you want to do so.

Divorce Mediation

You have quite a bit to settle when ending a marriage. You must develop a parenting plan, divide assets, and decide on issues such as alimony. A certified mediation attorney can go through each issue with you and your estranged spouse, helping you come to an agreement.

First, the mediator will discuss the known facts of the case, along with each person’s goals. Next, the mediator will inquire about areas of agreement and disagreement to determine where both parties stand. After that, the certified mediator will use non-adversarial negotiation strategies to help both parties reach an agreement.

If you agree to the settlement, the mediator will create the documents for you to sign. Then, the mediator can present them to the judge to sign off on your divorce.

Post-divorce Mediation

If you have experienced a substantial change in circumstances, your existing divorce agreement might not meet your needs. The court hands out strict penalties for non-compliance, so you do not want to ignore the terms. However, you can engage in post-divorce mediation to modify existing agreements to serve you better.

For instance, if you have become permanently disabled, you might need to modify child support or alimony due to the reduction in income. On the other hand, you might need to modify the time-sharing plan because you have moved closer to the child or have completed drug or alcohol rehabilitation. These are just some of the numerous issues you can resolve through mediation.

If you would like to avoid costly and stressful litigation, reach out to our firm today. A certified mediation attorney will explain what to expect if you enter into mediation with or without representation.

Child Support Mediation

Children have a right to receive adequate support from both parents, meaning one parent might have to pay child support after a divorce. If you go to court, the judge will likely follow the state’s guidelines when determining child support, which may not work for your unique situation. Even if the judge deviates from the guidelines, you might not be pleased with the results. Our child support mediation attorney will go over your wants and needs and help you come to a solution. Even if you are far apart right now, the mediator can help you come together for the sake of the children.

Do You Need A Lawyer For Mediation?

Both parties can retain counsel to represent them during mediation if they wish. However, you also have the option of going into mediation without private counsel. The attorneys at our firm can serve as neutral mediators or personal counsel. Contact us today to learn more about both options.
