For many clients considering divorce, discretion and privacy is of the utmost importance. They are concerned about their private affairs or financial information becoming public through a court file.
A pre suit mediation is a process for resolving many of the issues in a divorce before the divorce action is filed in the courts. If all issues can be resolved between the parties, reaching a pre suit settlement may be possible.
Barring cases where there is an urgent child-related issue or a need for immediate injunctive relief that would require a case to be filed immediately, in many instances, divorcing couples can negotiate many, if not all issues, with the help of a skilled divorce mediator.
Mediation allows divorcing couples to create an outcome that is best for their family, tailored to their unique situation. Mediation helps divorcing couples realize their priorities, intentions, and goals while addressing concerns that they may have. Mediation often results in lower attorney fees and costs for clients and keeps intimate details private.
