Lexington County Mediation Lawyer
Dedicated Family Law Representation in South Carolina
In order to finalize your marriage dissolution, you and your spouse must be able to come to an independent agreement regarding various terms pertaining to property division, child custody, support payments, and other aspects of divorce. If you are unable to reach a consensus, your divorce is considered "contested" and you must submit to the arbitrary decision of a family court judge before your marriage dissolution can be settled. The process of divorce litigation can be extremely time-consuming as well as financially and emotionally draining. For this reason, many couples choose to pursue methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, in order to avoid going to court.
What is divorce mediation?
Divorce mediation is a structured process that allows you to attempt to resolve your disagreements with your spouse outside of court under the direction of a neutral third party. This third party, or mediator, must go through special training and education in order to be certified. He or she can help you reach a settlement regarding your divorce terms in an organized, courteous manner.
