Divorce Mediation in Denver
What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a process in which the parties hire one lawyer, who represents neither party, but rather guides the parties through a process of resolving all issues in their divorce without going to court or being involved in litigation. Typically this includes having the lawyer prepare all documents required to finalize the divorce once an agreement has been reached.
Why We Recommend Divorce Mediation
Mediation can be a good fit for a couple that wants to preserve some type of a relationship moving forward, not perhaps for themselves, but for their children’s sake. It’s a process that can be less fraught with emotion and have fewer fights allowing spouses to come out the other end and co-parent their children as they proceed forward with their lives.
Be Wary of the Pretenders
True divorce mediation is not offered by a lot of divorce and family law firms for a variety of reasons. The first reason is that it requires that the mediating attorney have a lot of specialized skills. The ability to mediate issues for the parties is not something taught in law school and requires many hours of training. The second reason is that mediation is less lucrative for attorneys than litigation, so many lawyers and law firms are not willing to thoroughly develop this area of their practices and will guide clients to fit their own prerogative which is not necessarily in the client’s best interest.
