Harris County, TX Divorce Mediators

Texas judges are allowed to require a couple to mediate before they bring their divorce case to court. For that reason, even if you are hesitant to compromise with your spouse, it is vital to understand how mediation works and the benefits it can offer you.

Mediation is not just used in divorce, but also as a means to settle a variety of disputes. Mediation's unique trait that distinguishes it from arbitration and litigation is that no third party can create the terms of the settlement; only the disputing parties can. A mediator helps guide discussions between the parties to stay focused and address all of a dispute's pertinent issues, but they cannot provide any judgment or shape the final terms of an agreement.

With that said, it can still be immensely helpful for your divorce mediator to have a rich knowledge of family law. Such a mediator will be more effective in facilitating your divorce proceedings as you and your spouse set the terms and conditions for division of assets, spousal maintenance, child support, and conservatorship. With the help of a knowledgeable mediator, your and your spouse's satisfaction with the outcome of your divorce could be higher than it would be after litigation. Court rulings tend to leave one spouse feeling more defeated than the other, but the cooperative atmosphere of mediation can help you move on with your life constructively.

Divorce Mediation in Fort Bend County

Divorce mediation covers all of the issues that you would expect to be addressed in a court hearing or by a judge; the only difference is the cooperative frame of mind with which you and your spouse set the terms of your divorce. In mediation sessions, expect to cover:

  • Spousal Maintenance and Child Support: When one spouse makes the majority of the family income, and the other spouse is reliant on that income, spousal maintenance may be necessary for some period of time. In mediation, you and your spouse set the quantity and frequency of these payments in a way that is fair and manageable.
  • Division of Assets: Deciding who gets what, whether it be money, property, business ownership, or debt, is a complicated element of any divorce. If you had not previously decided how to divide your assets with a prenuptial agreement, part of your mediation would focus on this topic.
  • Child Custody: When setting the terms of conservatorship, it is crucial to consider the child's best interests. A mediator can help keep both parties focused on the children and carefully examine your child's schedule, school life, and preferences to make a decision that hopefully gives both spouses and the child a parenting plan that works best for all.
