One aspect of divorce and family law that people often ignore is the opportunity for reaching creative solutions. Of course, the law provides guidelines and definitions that provide the framework for divorce and matters such as property division, but the fact remains that couples have the power to work through their separation outside the restrictions of the courts.
Having guided numerous families through divorce during my career as a family law attorney, I understand the importance of adapting and evolving with the times and the particulars of each case. When irreconcilable differences make peaceful negotiations impossible, I provide thoughtful neutrality that seeks to find common ground between you and your spouse/partner.
I know how advantageous mediation can be for all parties. This is why I now work solely to finding amicable solutions for divorcing couples in the Atlanta area.
Putting The Power Back In Your Hands
A divorce affects all aspects of a person’s life. From your professional life to the relationship you have with your children — nothing goes untouched. As a registered neutral mediator, I encourage divorcing couples to consider the benefits of alternative dispute resolution, including:
- Saving money: Litigation eats up money by drawing out the divorce process — the more the contention, the higher the costs. Mediation keeps the process moving while allowing you to avoid the expenses of going to court.
- Saving time: As mentioned, litigation can be a prolonged process. In mediation, you and your spouse/partner can work through issues directly. This allows you to shorten the timeline when seeking a resolution. And, if you do not want to be in the same room with your soon to be ex, as the mediator, I travel from room to room, hearing each party thoroughly. This helps to ensure we can come up with creative solutions to the particular issues that have caused the contentiousness.
- Minimizing stress: When you leave your affairs up to the courts, you have little to no control over the outcome. During sessions with a mediator, you and your partner have the power to determine the future of your affairs.
- Protecting your children: Mediation spares children the emotional trauma of watching their parents fight one another in court. Furthermore, by working together, you and your partner can reach a parenting agreement that accounts for your wishes and the best interests of your children.
