What Is Mediation?

Mediation can be an excellent alternative to litigation for families in conflict. More and more spouses are using mediation to resolve their divorces without having to go through lengthy court proceedings. For parents seeking a new child custody arrangement, mediation can help minimize the conflict that children are exposed to. Most families can successfully use mediation to work through disputes, even if family members are unhappy with one another.

The Cusic Law Firm, P.C. advocates for the use of mediation as a solution for families who are experiencing family law conflicts. We believe that in most cases, mediation is preferable to litigation. It is typically quicker and more cost-effective than letting a court make decisions. If you are interested in mediating a family law conflict, we can talk you through the next steps and hopefully bring about an amicable solution.

Divorce Mediation in Harris County

Some spouses who have gone through divorce litigation report feeling like their privacy has been invaded. During a contested divorce, it is true that details about your marriage are likely to come out in court. Aside from that, asking a judge to make decisions about property division and child custody can be a risk. You and your spouse understand your unique family dynamics and needs better than anyone - so you are probably the best people to be making these decisions.

Mediation can take several forms. In one, the two of you, along with lawyers representing each party, will sit down with a neutral mediator and have a conversation about each of the issues in your divorce case. This works well in amicable divorce situations, where both spouses feel that they can work together.

Another option will let you avoid seeing your spouse at all. You and your attorney will be in one room, while your spouse and their lawyer will be in another as the mediator relays information and offers between both parties and helps find workable solutions.

It is up to you and your spouse to decide what type of dispute resolution methods would work best for you. Our attorneys are here to support you in any method for resolving your divorce that you feel is right for you.

The goal is for the two of you to agree on each issue, skipping any courtroom drama entirely. Mediation does take work and compromise, but the end result is often worth it.

Mediating Child Custody for Texas Residents

You do not need to be married and in the process of divorce to turn to mediation as a solution for your child custody concerns. Many unmarried parents who are not living together use mediation to come up with a custody and visitation schedule, as well as to settle the issue of child support.

Using this method can be hugely beneficial to the children involved. Not only are they spared the stress of court, but they will see that their parents are willing to set their differences aside, work together, and put them first.

Children whose parents engage in active co-parenting efforts enjoy many of the benefits that children in "traditional" two-parent households do. Starting the mediation process is a great way to kick off a successful co-parenting relationship.

When entering mediation for issues concerning children, both parents should be willing to compromise in order to protect the best interests of their children.
