If you and your spouse decide to divorce, there are multiple ways to go about it. For some, there are times when all matters become contentious and the couple will need assistance from a family court. Other times, a couple may have the option of going to mediation.
Mediation is the perfect alternative for a couple who is on good terms and want to work together to come up with the best agreement possible. The two would sit together, discuss the terms of all potentially contentious matters, and come up with a set arrangement before taking it to the family court judge to be approved. As a certified family law specialist, Andrew L. Westover, CFLS is one of only 15 in the area. This distinction helps ensure that out clients get the negotiation skills they need, even in difficult cases where emotions run high.

During mediation, a neutral third party — the mediator — will help both sides work together to reach the best possible resolution. This mediator doesn’t act as a lawyer and doesn’t take sides in a matter; rather, they work to make sure things stay amicable and the couples discuss the situation in a friendly matter.
If things become contentious during mediation, the case may need to go to trial. Each spouse can make offers or counter offers regarding important aspects such as child custody, child support, alimony, and property division to reach a settlement.
