Houston, Texas Family Law Mediation Firm

Although mediation is very common and sometimes required in Texas divorce cases, there are many other situations when couples may need the help of a mediator to settle disputes outside of divorce. Some examples of family law matters that couples often mediate are:

  • Paternity/parentage
  • Pre- and postnuptial agreements
  • LGBTQ family issues
  • Grandparent rights
  • Estate disputes
  • Surrogacy agreements

Also, any couples or parents who are not married can benefit from the assistance of an experienced family law mediator to settle disputes including:

  • Division of assets
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Child visitation

How Does Family Law Mediation Work in Fort Bend County?

Mediating a family law dispute begins with the partners or spouses meeting with a mediator of their choice to work through their problems and reach a compromise. Mediation may involve several sessions to reach an agreement on multiple issues. Mediators help the parties work towards a collaborative solution; however, mediation will not be a good choice if the spouses or partners are unwilling to cooperate. Also, mediation is not a practical choice if there is a history of domestic violence in the relationship. In either of these cases, the parties may be better served by a more traditional legal approach to settle any disputes.

When selecting a mediator, finding the right fit can make a significant difference in the effectiveness of your mediation sessions. Masah S. SamForay, Esq., founder of Foray Family Mediation, LLC, will use her 15 years of experience in family law to help guide you and your partner or spouse to an agreeable resolution.

Examples of Family Law Mediation in Montgomery County

  • It might not always be apparent to a couple when or why they should enlist a mediator, but we will offer some examples to clarify.
  • Paternity: Determining paternity or parentage and the agreements related to parenting time, child support, and conservatorship are potential items for mediation. When a mother is seeking child support from her child's father, or a father wishes to have input into his child's life and spend time with his child, a mediator can assist in creating the agreements between the two parents while keeping the best interests of the child at the forefront.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements: Mediation can be a great option for prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, because both parties are typically invested in a positive outcome for the relationship. The negotiations can be less stressful and contentious with a mediator involved, as opposed to one or two attorneys.
  • Surrogacy Agreements: Mediators can also help couples create surrogacy agreements. If a couple is considering a potential surrogate mother, but have questions regarding whether the surrogate mother and her spouse (if applicable) will continue to be a part of the child's life, a surrogacy agreement is the best way to clarify the terms. A mediator can help the couple and the surrogate finalize the details of their agreement with regard to medical expenses, legal guardianship, and adoption, as well as any involvement by the surrogate in the child's life.
