DID YOU KNOW?
Courts and Judges Favor Mediation!
The courts favors divorce mediation and prefers that couples use alternative dispute resolution such as mediation because it frees up the court calendar to hear more pressing and urgent family law matters on other cases such as temporary restraining orders and temporary support, visitation and custody matters. Judges often tell litigants to stop litigating and to solve their problems outside the courtroom. Why? Because there are no winners if you litigate.
Mediation is Easier on Kids!
If you are contemplating a divorce or having trouble settling divorce issues with your spouse, mediation might be the best choice for you and your spouse to settle your divorce issues in a more amicable fashion with less stress on you and other family members, including your children. Remember that divorce also takes a toll on children and affects other family members including your pets. Being able to settle issues quickly helps children and other family members adjust to the situation as well.
Costs, Privacy & Attorneys.
Anything that you say in mediation is kept confidential and does not get included in the public court records. Typically, the two parties share the costs of the mediation fee. Any variations can be decided by the parties on their own. Our mediations take place over a four-hour timeframe. If you and/or your spouse are represented by our own family law attorney, you can consult with the attorney pf course and attorneys are welcome at the mediations as well!
2.5 Million People Were Divorced!
In 2019, more than 2.5 million people were divorced in the United States. The good news is that the vast majority (over 90%) of those people mediated or found a way to settle their cases without litigation. But finding a way to settle with your spouse sounds easier said than done, right? Right! That is why you need a professional Attorney-Mediator to help you and your spouse find your way to settlement and resolution.
Mediation = No Court.
Mediate with us and avoid the stress of having to face a judge in a formal courtroom setting. You will have to talk about your personal financial issues and your personal family life. In contrast, whatever is said at mediation, stays at mediation. It is confidential, unlike a court hearing where testimony is put into public record and anyone can come in and sit down and listen to you and soon to be ex-spouse fighting over your divorce issues.
A Mediator Will Evaluate!
Our mediators act as evaluators and facilitators. We try and help you resolve your divorce issues. We do not decide or rule on the issues like a judge. It is up to you both to come to an agreement. We will help by making suggestions, helping you determine if additional information needs to be provided by one of the parties and help you understand how arguments or case facts may be seen and litigated by attorneys and courts. We will share our trial experiences with you and let you each determine the strength and weaknesses in your own and the other person's case.
Mediations are Better!
95% or more couples choose mediation over going to trial because mediation is quicker, less expensive and private. Keep your dirty laundry out of the public's eye!
We Provide All Legal Documents!
Once you and your spouse have reached a negotiated settlement, if you would like, we will draft an agreement for your review. If one or both parties are represented by attorneys, then it is a good idea for each party to have their respective attorney review the agreement before they sign it.
Divorce Is Really Tough.
Experts compare divorce to a death and the bereavement stages of anger, fear, loss, sadness and healing that accompany death. Even if you are the one who initiates the divorce, you still may have unresolved emotional issues about ending the marriage that surface now or in the future. And the divorce-process can take longer than a year to complete in Virginia! One of the easiest ways to make your divorce less painful is to mediate your divorce
and custody issues with an Eagle Mediation Attorney-Mediator.
Specially-Trained Mediators Help!
We understand that anger and disappointment are common feelings that may arise during divorce negotiations. In fact, many times you may have a hard time communicating with your spouse whatsoever about the division of property, child custody and spousal and child support issues. Our Mediators are Litigating-Family-Law Attorneys that are specially-trained neutral third parties, with a Family-Law background. They bring their expertise to bear on the subjects and issues you may be having difficulties resolving.
We Walk You Through Each Step
During your initial consultation meeting with the Attorney-Mediator we will discuss the process and how best to prepare. You will be asked to collect documents and return them to our office as soon as possible. After a thorough review of your document submissions and during our mediation with you and your spouse - we will begin where you will each have an opportunity to make opening statements or you may pass on this step if you choose. Then each issue will be discussed and if resolved then memorialized in a Memorandum of Agreement.
