Achieving Positive Results Through Divorce Mediation

Most people consider the divorce process to be highly contentious and hostile. There are issues of property division, child custody and child support. However, the process doesn’t have to be combative. Many couples find successful outcomes through divorce mediation.

When most people think of divorce attorneys, they think of confrontational legal battles. However, some attorneys are trained as divorce mediators. This means that rather than a long, drawn-out divorce court battle, you will have somebody who can sit down and work with you and your spouse to hammer out solutions without the need for a trial.
At the Law Offices of Robert B. Fried in Hartford, Connecticut, I will work to seek alternative divorce solutions for you and your family. As a lawyer and a trained divorce mediator, I remain neutral in divorce, support or child custody issues. I also work on collaborative divorces, which are similar to mediated divorces.

Why You May Want Divorce Mediation

One of the benefits of divorce mediation is that parties not represented by attorneys and the formalities of a trial are not allowed in this process. For couples that are able to cooperate, divorce mediation has many other advantages:

  • It costs less: Because spouses typically work with one divorce mediator, it can cut your attorney fees in half.
  • It’s faster: Because you don’t go through the court system, solutions can be wrapped up in less time.
  • It’s less stressful: You are working together to find solutions rather than fighting each other.
  • It’s confidential: Rather than fight it out in open court, these mediation meetings are private.
