Galveston Divorce Lawyer Representing Spouses in Alternative Dispute Resolution

A divorce will involve a multitude of different issues that will need to be resolved before a marriage can be legally terminated. While divorce cases will often involve some level of conflict due to the fact that a couple's relationship has broken down beyond repair, spouses do not necessarily have to take an adversarial approach to the divorce process. Instead, a couple can benefit by working together to address and resolve the various legal issues involved in their divorce, and they can negotiate a divorce settlement that will meet the needs of both parties. In many cases, mediation can be the best option for spouses who are willing to cooperate with each other during the divorce process.

The law office of Daniel R. Bacalis, P.C. provides legal representation in multiple types of divorce cases. For those who plan to use mediation to create a divorce settlement, we can offer advice and guidance, helping them understand their rights and the laws that apply to them. This can ensure that a person will be prepared to approach mediation the right way and advocate for themselves during negotiations. We can also review settlements that are created during mediation to identify issues that may need to be addressed or concerns that may arise in the future. By working with us, you can be sure that you will be able to protect your rights and interests while also reaching agreements that both you and your spouse will be satisfied with.

Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Mediation allows spouses to take a cooperative approach to the divorce process, and by negotiating a settlement outside of court, they will be able to avoid the costly and time-consuming litigation process. During mediation, a couple will work with a neutral mediator to determine how they will resolve all of the outstanding issues in their case. They may reach agreements on issues such as marital property division, child custody, and spousal support, and they will create a settlement that fully details how all of these issues will be addressed. Once the settlement has been finalized, it may be filed in court, and after it is approved by a judge, the couple's marriage will be legally dissolved.

Mediation can provide multiple benefits, including:

  • Cooperation - As they work together to reach agreements, spouses will be encouraged to see things from each other's perspective. This may help them find solutions that will provide benefits for both parties and ensure that they will both be able to move forward successfully after the end of their marriage. This can be especially beneficial for divorcing parents, since it can encourage continued cooperation as they work together to raise their children in the years to come.
  • Control - If a divorce is resolved through litigation, the decisions made by a judge may not fully take the needs and desires of either party into account, and this may lead to results that are unsatisfactory to both parties. When using mediation, the spouses will have full control over all of the decisions they make, and they will need to be in complete agreement over the terms of their settlement.
  • Confidentiality - Spouses can rest assured that all discussions that occur during the mediation process will be completely confidential. This will ensure that they will be able to speak their minds freely and openly as they discuss the issues that need to be addressed.
  • A faster and more efficient divorce process - Mediation will often allow spouses to complete their divorce quickly, and they can use as many sessions as needed to ensure that all of the outstanding issues will be fully addressed. A couple may also be able to save money during this process, since they will typically divide the costs of a mediator rather than paying separate attorneys to represent them during court hearings or a divorce trial.
