Mediation: Divorce Without The Stress
At Marsh & Frost, our lawyers are not only strong proponents of mediation as a method of legal resolution, but we also are licensed mediators, providing the service in-house.
From offices in Marietta, Georgia, our divorce mediation lawyers can help you avoid costly, emotional courtroom battles that can span more than a year. Through mediation, we will facilitate productive conversations aimed at a shared goal of dissolving the marriage and moving on. The litigation process is often slowed by emotions and anger. We work with clients in family law mediation matters throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.
The Benefits Of Mediation And Collaborative Law
During the mediation and collaborative law process, you will have the opportunity to face your spouse and discuss important issues in a calm, facilitated environment. We find that mediation is the channel many couples need to arrive at an agreed-upon solution much faster, cheaper and amicably than a costly litigation battle.
Many former spouses find that the mediation process sets the framework for healthy interaction following the divorce, particularly when children are involved. The mediation process tends to be much healthier for the children involved, saving them the anguish of being privy to angry arguments. Also, in mediation conversations, the best interest of the children is much more likely to be remembered, and they are less likely to become pawns in the negotiations.
Following the divorce, a healthier relationship between former spouses means healthier relationships with the children involved. Transferring the children during visitation tends to be much more amicable.
Mediation is also considerably less expensive than divorce litigation. Rather than both spouses paying costly attorney fees, one mediator is able to assemble the agreements in a package and send the couple to the judge to have the resolution approved.
