Working Together to Benefit All Parties | Mediation in Washington State
When it comes to divorce, most people look at fighting it out in the courtroom as a ‘necessary evil’. But, even when the parties involved don’t see eye-to-eye on every issue, it is often possible to use an experienced third-party divorce mediator to help. Mediation settles matters quickly, affordably, and with less stress.
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution. The parties involved meet with a neutral third-party mediator. The mediation is an attempt to settle the case out of court. A family law attorney acting as the mediator works with both parties and their respective attorneys. They all work towards a structured agreement for the divorce. The mediation process will help to ensure that both parties keep as much control as possible over the outcome of the divorce.

Using a divorce mediator attorney has proven to be an effective and successful way to discuss important topics. Topics include deciding how assets and debts will be divided, setting residential schedules, and more. In most cases, the mediation process will take a full day to allow the parties to work through various issues.
Parties can use mediation throughout various phases of the dissolution process. In some cases, parties might choose to have a mediation session held at the beginning of the case. This mediation would be to resolve any temporary issues that otherwise would require a court hearing. Once the parties resolve preliminary issues, a second mediation can complete the remaining aspects of the divorce.
