San Angelo Divorce Mediation Attorney
Stay Out of Court With the Representation of Our Divorce Lawyer
Couples who are willing to negotiate their divorce peaceably regularly
choose mediation. Mediation involves a private meeting at which a third
party (or "mediator") is present to oversee divorce negotiations.
Virtually all divorce proceedings can be handled during mediation, as
long as both parties are willing to work calmly and respectfully through
each arrangement. A more complex divorce may require several meetings
over the span of a few months; however, simpler divorces can often be
handled in one or two meetings.
Less Hassle & Headache so You Can Move Forward from Your Divorce
The process of mediation is much preferred over the hostile court environment. Our
San Angelo family law attorney walks you through the procedure and makes sure you understand what is
expected of you during each step. Furthermore, we are able to offer wise
counsel regarding each point you visit, protecting your rights as you
finalize your divorce.
Additional benefits of mediation include:
- Less expensive than court.
- More peaceful and private than court.
- Gives decision control to you and your former spouse, not to a judge.
Mediation is much simpler than standing before a judge. Each party discusses
points such as child support and custody, division of assets, and alimony
or spousal maintenance, and comes up with a mutually agreeable plan. Once
each party has reached an agreement, the mediator transcribes an official
document which outlines the terms upon which you both have agreed. These
agreements are presented to the court to be formalized.

What If We Can't Agree?
Since mediation only works if both spouses are willing to respectfully
discuss the divorce and agree upon an arrangement, sometimes mediation
doesn't work. Situations where the separation involves hostile feelings
or aggression, mediation can fail and move the divorce to court. Our goal
as your attorney is to keep you out of court and counsel you as to the
most productive way to handle your divorce. We help you decide where to
compromise and where to stand firm.
