When a married couple cannot continue the relationship, they often consider the process of divorce. In some unfortunate cases, divorce becomes a drawn-out process that negatively impacts the whole family. Fortunately, some couples want to avoid a court battle, costs a lot of money, and airs personal issues in front of a public forum. Divorce mediation can help families resolve their issues and come to an amicable conclusion to their relationship. The goal of divorce mediation is to help couples reach a manageable conclusion that resolves all marital issues through a Settlement Agreement. Through the use of a neutral third-party, a couple can work through their differences in a respectful, constructive manner. If you are inquiring about divorce and want to avoid the turmoil of court and the cost of litigation, The Law Office of Toby Grabelle, LLC is ready to serve. The firm’s mediation practice can ease couples through all outstanding marital issues or support one party with quality legal advice and counsel through the process.

Divorce mediation will address marital issues

Divorce mediation will address the same applicable issues as a court trial. Some of those issues may include:

  • Spousal support
  • Division of marital property
  • Child support
  • Child custody

Being prepared is an important part of the process

When you start the process of mediation, you should have all financial documents organized and ready for discussion. In fortunate cases, some couples are able to work together and organize their financials before the process commences. Aside from preparing the financial documents, you should be prepared with your cares and concerns about the future. If you are concerned with how the other may introduce a significant other to a child, you should be ready to talk about it. If you are concerned about someone being a part of your child’s life who you consider a bad influence, you should be ready to talk about that in a respectful manner. When you sign a Settlement Agreement, you want to feel like your concerns were fully addressed in the process.
