Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Law Settlement

For many couples able to work together and negotiate the terms of their divorce, mediation or arbitration is a very worthwhile route.

Creative Solutions Through Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods

In these instances, divorcing couples can save valuable time and money by engaging in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, arbitration or the collaborative approach to family law.

Our attorneys at Berman & Asbel, LLP have extensive experience helping couples reach a divorce settlement through these means. As forms of alternative dispute resolution, these options make it possible for couples to get divorced while maintaining active control over every aspect of their final divorce agreement. Mediation is a valuable option for families who already know how they want to divide their assets, but need an experienced lawyer to fill in the blanks and help them finalize the divorce by making it a binding agreement that is filed in the court system.

How Does Mediation Work?

Mediation is often a logical choice for couples in the middle of a dispute that has reached a dead end. Instead of representing one side, our attorneys will serve as a neutral third-party mediator to address issues and guide the couple to discuss viable resolutions.

In circumstances where the couple cannot reach an agreement, the couple will proceed to have their divorce heard in court. At that point, each side will need to get his or her own attorney, since our attorneys would not be able to represent either spouse in court.

Benefits of Mediation and Collaborative Law

Both mediation and collaborative law are beneficial for many reasons such as:

  • Saving money
  • Saving time
  • Giving parties more control over the outcome
  • Parties uphold their obligations more often when involved in the negotiation process
