First Steps in Divorce Mediation in Texas

Divorce mediation is a settlement process in which the ex spouses meet with a neutral third party - the mediator - to resolve the contested issues in a private meeting or series of meetings.

Typically the mediation is conducted through a series of two-hour meetings at the mediator's office and the mediator helps the parties:

  • To identify the key issues
  • Address the financial issues
  • Work through custody issues

Once the parties reach an agreement on the issues, a settlement agreement is drafted, and each party has his or her attorney review the agreement. The agreement is then submitted to the court for approval.

Mediation is voluntary and you may choose to terminate mediation at any time during the process. And the mediation process is complete only when both parties are satisfied with the agreement.
Why Divorce Mediation?

The trend toward divorce mediation has increased because the process offers divorcing couples many benefits including:

  • Greater control of problem resolution
  • Equal airing of grievances
  • Lowered legal and court costs
  • Establishes cooperation between spouses
  • Establishes co-parenting solutions
  • Family issues are decided by you rather than the judge
  • Quicker resolution to problems

Even a difficult case can reap amazing results with an experienced and skillful divorce mediator. Divorcing couples should strongly consider using the mediation process if their goal is to obtain a settlement that is acceptable to both parties, in a less stressful and private setting.
