How Mediation And Negotiation Can Be Used In Divorces

Mediation is often used by parties in the process of separation and divorce, and it is an excellent, cost-effective method for resolving disputes. Mediation may be used by the parties to determine the division of marital assets, child custody, alimony, child support and other related issues during their divorce.

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process that allows parties to work together with a neutral third party who does not represent either party but, rather, acts as a facilitator to help the parties reach an acceptable, legally binding agreement. Our experienced mediator at Daphne Edwards Divorce & Family Law, PC, can help you navigate through the complexities of your case and facilitate productive discussions. Whether you are considering divorce, child custody or any other family law matter, Daphne Edwards is here to guide you toward a peaceful and fair resolution.

What Are The Advantages Of Mediation?

There are myriad advantages to mediation, including the following:

  • Most importantly, mediation allows the parties to retain control over the end result, rather than turning over the decision-making power to a judge.
  • Mediation is typically conducted in an informal setting, unlike a courtroom, and involves the mediator speaking with each party to reach a mutually agreeable resolution.
  • The mediation process is designed to avoid adversarial situations, is less expensive than litigation and is often faster than multiple court hearings.

Attorney Daphne Edwards regularly counsels and assists her clients in mediations to help them reach acceptable, legally binding separation arrangements that resolve the issues involved in their divorces. In addition, our Wake County mediation lawyer is a certified family financial mediator and serves as a professional mediator for other family law attorneys and their clients.
