Divorce and Child Custody Attorneys Helping Families in Dallas, Rockwall and Collin County with Mediation
At The Blacknall Firm, we understand that divorce and child custody cases can be emotionally charged and complex. That is why we offer mediation services to help our clients resolve their disputes in a peaceful and cooperative manner.
What Is Mediation?
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution where a neutral third party, the mediator, helps the parties in a divorce or child custody case to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties, but rather facilitates communication and negotiation between them.
Benefits of Mediation
Mediation can provide a number of benefits for parties involved in a divorce or child custody case, including:
- Cost-Effective: Mediation is typically less expensive than going to trial.
- Confidential: Mediation is a private process that is not part of the public record.
- Faster Resolution: Mediation can be a faster way to resolve disputes than going through the court system.
- More Control: Mediation allows the parties to have more control over the outcome of their case than if they were to go to trial.
- Better Relationships: Mediation can help the parties to maintain a better relationship, which is especially important when children are involved.
How Does Mediation Work?
In Texas, mediation is mandatory before a final trial in many family law cases, including divorce and child custody cases. The parties will typically meet with the mediator in a neutral location, such as a conference room, and the mediator will explain the mediation process.
During the mediation, the parties and their attorneys will have the opportunity to discuss their concerns and needs through the mediator, and the mediator will help them to find common ground and reach a mutually acceptable agreement.
If the parties are able to reach an agreement, the mediator will draft a written agreement that outlines the terms of the agreement. The parties and their attorneys will then sign the agreement, and it will be filed with the court.
