Is Mediation The Right Option For You?
There are many reasons that people pursue mediation. The majority choose to mediate as they can control the process and outcome by creating solutions that satisfy the needs of the family as a whole. At the LAW OFFICES OF PIAZZA & SIMMONS, LLC, attorney Anthony Piazza focuses on matrimonial mediation. He is a former president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and represents clients in state and federal courts in Connecticut. Attorney Simmons is also a trained family law mediator.
Mediation In Divorce
Often, mediation is the route to reasonably resolve divorce or legal separation settlement and other related matters, including child custody, child support, spousal support and division of marital property. However, mediation is not effective in every situation. There are some divorces that are better resolved through litigation. If your spouse or domestic partner is not willing to engage in reasonable negotiations, we are prepared to advocate aggressively for your well-being in Connecticut courts.
What To Expect In Divorce Mediation
Mediation works best in situations where spouses are willing to set aside their differences and make intelligent decisions about their future and the future of their children. It is often done in a series of sessions, where spouses can address one or more issues in each session. With the help of an attorney, couples will create a complaint and separation agreement that will contain statements describing the decisions they had made – decisions like a complete parenting plan and division of all marital property.
There are many benefits of mediation, such as reduced legal expenses as issues are resolved more quickly and without the hassle and expense that a trial entails. Unlike court-ordered divorce settlement agreements, divorcing couples are more likely to abide by the final agreement arrived through mediation. This is because both spouses work out solutions to divorce matters rather than let a judge decide on them. In divorce cases that involve children, mediation can get the parties to act as cooperating co-parents faster than through the path of an ugly divorce battle.
