Plano Divorce Mediation Attorney

Lucas TX divorce mediation attorney

Family Lawyer for Alternative Dispute Resolution in Collin County and Dallas County

If you are getting a divorce or you are in the midst of a child custody dispute, you may have concerns about how the process will play out in court. Perhaps you have heard horror stories about hostile, public divorce trials that result in many thousands of dollars in legal expenses, and you are worried that the same will happen to you. However, many divorce and custody cases are resolved primarily outside of the courtroom through an agreement between the two parties. It is well worth considering whether your case is a good candidate for an alternative dispute resolution method like mediation.

At the Law Office of Brian Bagley, we know that no single approach to the divorce process is right for everyone, and we make our services available to people pursuing all manner of resolution methods. We will listen to your story so we can advise you regarding the method that may work best for you, and we will guide and represent you throughout the process to help you ensure that whatever type of agreement you reach protects your interests and meets your needs.

Understanding Family Law Mediation

Mediation can be a good approach for those who want to maintain as much control as possible over the outcome of their case. For mediation to work, you and your spouse or the other party both must commit to communicating and negotiating in good faith and working toward a mutual agreement that benefits both of you. The good news is that if you and your spouse are able to work together, each of you will have the opportunity to offer input as you create an an agreement that works well for both of you.

Benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods in Texas

The primary benefit of mediation is it can be a more efficient, cost-effective resolution when compared to a divorce trial. Mediation can also offers more privacy than litigation, as it occurs behind closed doors away from the public eye. If you and your spouse are struggling to cooperate and reach an agreement on your own, mediation may be the best option to help you avoid the time and expense of going to court.

For example, mediation can help spouses divide marital assets such that both parties keep some of their most important properties intact, and it can help parents create a custody and child support arrangement that helps them be better co-parents for their children.
