Divorce can be a tumultuous affair, especially when one party may not be very receptive to it, or because there are a lot of legal hurdles to go through, such as decisions facing your children, assets and other legal matters such as prenuptial agreements. Having to go to court and ask a judge to decide on these matters for you can be a long and drawn out process. One way to mitigate this process is by going through divorce mediation, which allows you to sit down with a neutral legal representative and have legitimate discussions to settle your private and personal conflicts. Mediation has grown much more acceptable in recent years as an alternative to the bitterness of a courtroom battle, as couples can express their concerns, fears, desires and needs in a much calmer, private and understanding environment.
At King Law Firm Attorneys at Law, Inc., we empathize with the emotional chaos divorce can bring and we try to limit that burden by negotiating or mediating your case. We encourage you to make certain decisions that meet the best interests of both parties (especially if any children are involved), and help keep you from making rash decisions in the heat of an argument. We also help keep the process smooth and as amicable as possible in order to make sure the children aren’t affected by a long, drawn-out, sometimes heated court battle. And though every case is unique, we work hard to help our clients reach voluntary agreements that benefit everyone, hopefully allowing the relationship to remain strong and healthy.
You can benefit from private mediation in any of the following areas:
- Legal Separation
- Domestic Partnership Dissolution
- Spousal or Partner Support
- Child Custody and Visitation
- Asset Division
