Carrollton Divorce Mediation in Texas

Carrollton TX certified divorce mediator

Certified Divorce Mediator in Dallas, Denton, and Collin Counties

For many people, divorce conjures images of heated court battles in which each spouse's attorney is constantly trying to outdo the other and at least one spouse ends up walking away unhappy. Fortunately, this is by no means the universal divorce experience. If you are willing to consider mediation, your divorce will likely bear little resemblance to the above scenario, and you may be able to reach a resolution that satisfies both you and your spouse.

At Divorce Mediation Centers of America, our goal is to provide our clients with a better way of getting divorced. Our trained and certified divorce mediators take the time to understand each spouse's needs and priorities and help them find common ground and opportunities for compromise. We have the knowledge and experience to help you create a legal agreement that holds up in court, without suffering from the stress and expenses that a court battle may entail.

How Does Mediation Work?

Divorce mediation takes place between the two spouses and a third-party mediator. Our mediators have legal experience, but during the mediation process, they will not offer legal advice or represent either spouse's interests. Rather, the mediator's focus is to guide the spouses in the creation of their own agreement.

We start our mediation process with a meeting between the mediator and both spouses to ensure they both understand how mediation will proceed. During this meeting, we answer any questions and address any concerns that each spouse may have. We also ask each spouse to fill out a set of documents to bring to their scheduled mediation session, giving them an opportunity to gather information and think about their priorities regarding property division, child custody, child support, and any other issues.

During the mediation session, the mediator helps keep discussions moving in a productive, organized fashion, ensuring that each spouse has the opportunity to express their needs and concerns on each of the matters at hand. When there is disagreement or distance between the two spouse's perspectives, we help them work through their differences and find mutually agreeable solutions.

Through one or more of these sessions, the goal is for the spouses to reach a settlement that will govern the terms of their divorce. A mediated settlement can be legally binding, as long as the spouses agree that this will be so, and the appropriate court approves the agreement.

Advantages of Mediation in Carrollton, TX

When mediation works, there are many potential advantages compared to other divorce resolution methods. Some of these benefits may include:

  • Creative and satisfying solutions - Mediation allows for a wider range of possibilities, which may lead to solutions that better meet your unique needs when compared to the limited options available in court.
  • Autonomy and control - Mediation makes it easier to keep your personal matters private, and also leaves you in control of your decisions and the final outcome, rather than leaving it up to a judge.
  • Relationship maintenance - Mediation is often a better choice for spouses who want to stay amicable or even friendly, which may be especially important when children are involved.
  • Time and cost savings - Mediation tends to be a more efficient process than litigation, and the cost of mediation tends to be lower and more predictable than the cost of hiring an attorney.
