Benefits of Divorce Mediation in Houston

Houston Divorce AttorneyDivorce mediation is a means to sit down and discuss with your spouse and a divorce mediator issues relating to a divorce such as alimony, child custody, child support, division of assets, dividing debts, and visitation.  The Houston law firm of Kay Polk can advise and assist in selecting a Houston divorce mediator as an option for couples that want to mutually resolve their issues in a sensitive, non-judgmental atmosphere.

Mediation can be used for any divorce situation except for domestic violence, or if one partner has more power than the other.  In Texas, the court calls for mandatory mediation for divorce that involves child-related issues such as custody and visitation, provided the spouses are represented by an attorney.  There must be no abuse charges for a mandatory mediation in Texas.

Mediation has pros and cons; however, the benefits of mediation far outweigh the disadvantages.

Houston Divorce Mediation - Advantages:

  • Mediation is less costly and time-consuming that filing a divorce case.
  • In mediation, there are no opposing sides.  You both work together to chisel out an agreement that fits your new lives, and the lives of your children.
  • Mediation resolves issues so you can file an uncontested divorce, where all the parties are in agreement of divorce issues such as child and division of assets concerns.
  • The mediator doesn’t render a decision.  The mediator facilitates an agreement between the parties.
  • Mediation may be more effective because it is the result of both parties agreement rather than a judge's decision.
