Stoughton Mediation Attorneys
When most people think of divorce, they often think of bitter courtroom dramas that are thought to drag on. That does not need to be your divorce experience. Whenever possible, it is healthier and typically more efficient for everyone involved, especially children, when all issues are settled outside the courtroom.
If you believe you and your spouse can work together to agree on a divorce settlement without going to court on a contested basis, you have alternative dispute resolution options available, including mediation and collaborative law. Attorney Kevin Walters is a trained divorce and family law mediator. With more than a decade of experience, he has the skill to guide you and your spouse confidently through the mediation process.
Providing Effective Mediation Legal Services for Your Divorce
Many people do not know how the mediation process works. Attorney Walters will walk you through the process and provide guidance along the way while acting as an effective mediator. There are a number of potential advantages to mediation over trial, including:
- Cost savings: A contested divorce may involve substantial attorney fees and costs. Because mediation is handled outside of the courtroom and tends to require fewer attorney hours, it typically costs much less than litigation.
- Time savings: With mediation, there is no need to wait for a court date. The time it takes to go through divorce mediation depends on how long it takes you and your spouse to reach agreements. As a result, mediation is typically less time-consuming than the contested court process that may lead to trial.
- Privacy: Mediation is private and only the paperwork associated with filing the mediated divorce settlement is filed with the court.
- Less stress: While divorce almost always involves some degree of stress, some of that stress is minimized when you know that the outcome is in your hands, rather than in the hands of a judge who does not know you and your family. Additionally, because it tends to be less contentious, mediation typically places less stress on the children.
