CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROFESSIONAL

10/11/2017

Not all mediators are attorneys. Not all attorneys are mediators. What does that mean? If you choose a mediator who is not an attorney, then that person can help you and your spouse make certain decisions but they cannot provide legal information to either of you and they cannot draft or file the actual divorce papers. Similarly, choosing separate attorneys means that you and your spouse will proceed with your divorce using the traditional court process.

There is another option...

The majority of couples can navigate a divorce with the assistance of one trained professional: an attorney who is also certified as a divorce mediator. This means that you and your spouse have someone working with you both who knows, and can provide you with, legal information and the consequences of the decisions you are making. This professional can guide you both through the entirety of the divorce process without having to go to court and can draft all of the required court papers.
