Divorce and Child Custody Mediators in Dallas County, TX and Surrounding Areas

If your marriage has failed due to irreconcilable differences and disagreements, reaching an agreement on a divorce resolution may seem like an impossible task. However, when compared to the alternative—contested litigation—an agreed divorce is often an easier and better option for everyone involved. If you need assistance reaching an agreement and getting it approved in court, divorce mediation can help.

At Divorce Mediation Centers of America, our team is led by Sharon Easley, a licensed attorney and certified mediator with many years of experience in both divorce litigation and mediation. She understands the legal divorce process in Texas and the issues at hand, and she can help you and your spouse work through those issues on the path to a mutually agreeable resolution with minimal involvement of the court.

Is Divorce Mediation Right for Me?

Like many couples, you and your spouse may be interested in pursuing an uncontested or agreed divorce, but you are unsure of how to go about doing so. You may feel that you and your spouse are too far apart on some of your priorities. You may be unsure of the information you need in order to make informed decisions. Or, you may be uncertain of the criteria that the court will look for when approving an agreement.

Our mediation services can help you address each of these concerns. After an initial meeting where we will answer your questions and prepare you for what to expect, we will give you a packet of documents that will serve as a guide for the information you will need to bring to mediation and all of the details you will need to address in your resolution. This will include information regarding your property, income, and assets, as well information about your children's needs and routines, so that you can better address issues including property division, child custody, and child support.

At your mediation session, a neutral mediator will facilitate discussions between you and your spouse to promote the open exchange of information and allow each of you to express your needs and priorities. If some of your priorities already align, we can help you capture them in the terms of your divorce resolution. For priorities that do not align, we encourage constructive communication that paves the way for compromise or collaborative solutions.

Once you have a resolution that both of you are satisfied with, we help you take the final steps to file it with the court, either in person or electronically, to ensure that it becomes legally binding. If the court has any issues with your agreement, we can help you address them until you have a resolution that meets the legal standards.

Other Benefits of Divorce Mediation in Dallas

In addition to the guidance of an experienced mediator, you may find that there are many other benefits to using mediation rather than litigation to resolve your divorce. For one, you will have greater control over the outcome, meaning that your resolution may be more satisfying and specifically tailored for your family's situation. You will also be spared from the possible spectacle of a public trial and the hostility that it may encourage between you and your spouse.

Mediation can also help you save money and time. Mediation fees tend to be lower than attorney fees, especially when an attorney would be spending many hours preparing and representing you in court proceedings and hearings. For many couples, a resolution can be achieved through one day of mediation, which means that the divorce process will not be dominating their lives for an extended period of time like it might in the case of litigation.
