Divorce Mediation – Here’s What To Expect?
Are you looking into divorce mediation but not sure what to expect? The Hill Law Firm, PC in Overland Park, KS, is here to ease your concerns and answer frequently asked questions in this week’s blog.
Divorce Mediation allows clients to sit down with an experienced, neutral party, in this case, attorney/mediator, Elizabeth Hill, and actively participate in the divorce process. Mediation facilitates creative solutions and provides certainty, which traditional divorce cannot offer. In addition to eliminating court battles and giving couples control over the negotiation process, divorce mediation is usually more cost-effective than conventional divorce.
Selecting mediation is especially important if children are involved. Mediation allows you and your spouse to effectively and efficiently work through the financial and legal issues, such as child custody, parenting time, child support, and the many other vital issues that are part of a written parenting plan, without destroying the parental relationships that will continue long after the marriage has ended.
As your Mediator, Elizabeth Hill will help you and your spouse reach an agreement you can accept and embrace as your own. The mediation process is voluntary and confidential.
Consider divorce mediation if you are considering divorce in Overland Park or Kansas City. During mediation meetings, Elizabeth’s step-by-step approach will address the specific needs of your divorce agreement so that both parties are satisfied with the resolutions. Mediation offers clients more time to be creative and is the opposite of rushed negotiations.
There is no correct speed at which these meetings proceed. Sometimes couples can work through their specific needs in only a few sessions, while others need more time. More complex cases with a lot of assets or child custody arrangements may require more meeting time. The frequency and number of meetings are self-determined.
