I think my marriage is over.. what now?
Whatever your reasons are for wanting a divorce, we can help. Ending your marriage does not mean it is the end of the world, divorce is often the pathway to a better life. Our highly trained and very experienced mediators will help both parties to work through the difficulties and arrive at a mutually agreeable, and peaceful resolution.
There are basically two types of divorces, contested and uncontested. Contested divorces are where the spouses do not agree about what they want to happen. They can be much more complicated.
Sometimes, spouses separate amicably. They agree to evenly divide the assets they have acquired during their life together. They agree about who’s getting child support and how much, who’s paying alimony — payments to a spouse after a divorce — and how much, and who’s getting the house. They enter what’s known as an uncontested divorce, a kind of out-of-court settlement, and simply file a joint petition for divorce with a county clerk’s office. Different states refer to this document by different names, including complaint or joint petition.
Mediation is confidential. You can feel comfortable knowing whatever is said between you and your mediator will not be shared with anyone else and is inadmissible as evidence in court.
Let's talk. The first step in divorce mediation is to have an open and frank conversation with a mediator. Share with us your situation, and any challenges you are facing. Are there children involved, do you have assets or property to divide? Whatever your situation, we can help. Call us today at 936-217-9400.
