Brandon Divorce Mediator
A number of couples are electing to go to mediation as their first step in obtaining a divorce. A mediator does not have to be an attorney and often is not. The purpose of mediation is to facilitate communication between husband and wife so they can freely express their concerns and desires in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. A mediator’s goal is to help a couple or arrive to an agreement without necessarily ensuring that both parties are getting a “fair” deal. Once an agreement is reached, then most of the time, the mediator will draft an agreement which later will be presented to the court for incorporating into a divorce decree. Often times the mediation agreement drafted by a non attorney does NOT say what it means or mean what it says!
Family Law Mediation
Once an agreement is reached in mediation and the agreement is signed it is considered legally binding and this is where the problem lies when engaging a non attorney mediator.
An attorney who practices family law locally and also does family law mediation has the advantage of not only knowing the law but having the ability to pretty much predict how a particular local judge may rule based on past rulings. He or she will also know when one party may be being slighted. A good family law attorney mediator may stop the mediation process if he or she feels that one party is being taken advantage of and continue the mediation process once that party can obtain legal advice outside the mediation process.
Family mediation lawyers who practices family law and also does Divorce Mediation will have the expertise to draft an agreement that “says what it means and means what it says .” In other words, when you leave the Divorce Mediation session with a signed agreement you can be assured that what you signed can be enforced in court at a later date, if need be. Unfortunately, if people know they can get away with not fulfilling their legal obligations because their Divorce Mediation agreement was poorly drafted, they tend not hold up their end of the bargain.
