You do have options
Even in the mediation, each party should have a strong legal representative to look out for his or her individual rights. The atmosphere of mediation can provide a great opportunity to discuss what areas of the legal dispute can be negotiated and, in many cases, provides an opportunity to achieve better results than a courtroom can offer. It is a give-and-take process, and Bolton Law can help make sure you get great results in this manner.
THOROUGH PREPARATION AND ZEALOUS ADVOCACY IN MEDIATION
Before entering into the mediation meeting, attorney Ruby Bolton prepares her clients thoroughly with as much attention to detail as she would give in courtroom proceedings. She works through the different aspects of the divorce and makes sure that she and her clients are on the same page about various issues. The majority of her cases are effectively settled in mediation, with her clients achieving favorable results in any kind of divorce issue that matters to their families, including:
Child custody and visitation
Legal parental rights
Property worth and division of property assets
Division of financial assets and business assets
Spousal maintenance (alimony)
In most cases, you can get more out of mediation than from a courtroom, and get it in a more cost-effective, less stressful manner. You could discuss long-term family planning issues such as college payments for a child or health insurance payments. Mediation lets you define what matters most to your family, and you can put those into contracts and agreements.
