Divorce Mediation in NC

AV Preeminent® Rating Family Law Firm Here to Assist You

Not only is divorce mediation becoming a more popular way to resolve disputes, it is also increasingly required in many North Carolina judicial districts. Many judicial districts require alternative dispute resolution such as divorce mediation in family law cases to resolve issues like child custody and visitation arrangements. Many courts also require divorce mediation to resolve financial issues. This program is called Family Financial Settlement and it uses a mediator to help divorcing spouses resolve financial issues such as child support, property division and spousal support.

Choosing the Right Mediator for Your Case

If you are considering mediation or are required to use mediation in your divorce, how do you choose a mediator or an attorney to help you mediate? We encourage you to investigate the resources available at the law firm of Krusch Law, PLLC .

Attorney Alan R. Krusch is an experienced and well-versed mediator. Additionally, he is a knowledgeable Charlotte attorney. Having a lawyer who is a trained mediator can be helpful when you need a lawyer on your side through the process. As a trained mediator, our attorney can help you understand the mediator’s role, the process, and the give and take necessary to conclude mediation with an agreement.

Likewise, we are also equipped to serve as your mediator through the process, using our years of insight and regular training to provide the best possible mediation services. Alan's goal as a mediator is to ensure a favorable resolution for both sides, while his role as a Charlotte lawyer is to ensure our clients' rights remain safeguarded. In either case, we have the qualifications and understanding to help.

How to Prepare for Divorce Mediation

Preparing for an upcoming mediation session is part of performing your due diligence. This is because couples who prepare ahead of time are more likely to see faster results. Our law firm has outlined several suggestions that you may take to help better prepare for your upcoming session:

  • Be prepared to negotiate and comprise. Having the proper mindset is helpful if your spouse begins to disagree with all of your suggestions.
  • Expect the unexpected; you may hear topics come up from your spouse that you did not realize were issues.
  • Create a list of questions or concerns for both your spouse and the mediator
  • If applicable, you may create a parenting plan that highlights the days you each will have custody.
  • If applicable, discuss all legal terms with your attorney so that there is no confusion.

Hiring Our Firm for Private Mediation in Charlotte, NC

In addition to representing individuals going through divorce, we are able to assist spouses with resolving their disputes by acting in the role of mediator. As a mediator, Alan Krusch acts to assist you and your spouse to reach a settlement. We can do that whether you have an attorney or not.

Some things to know about mediation:

  • When we act as a mediator, we cannot provide you with legal advice because a mediator is, by definition, neutral.
  • You are encouraged to still get legal advice from an attorney during the mediation process.
  • Your mediator should be focused on facilitating an agreement between you and your spouse that each of you can live with.
  • Mediation allows you to both get what you want, without the time and expense of litigation in court.

If you wish to consider mediation, you and your spouse must both be in agreement over the mediator you select. If you are interested in having us act as mediator, we can meet with you both together to discuss the process. Once we meet, we will not be able to represent one of you against the other or give you legal advice, as to do so would not be within our role as mediator. However, many couples have found that mediation is a cost-effective alternative to court when it comes to resolving their disputes.

  • Alan is a sophisticated professional.

    “Alan is a sophisticated professional. Wow, did I say wow?!!!! He will tell you up front EXACTLY what will happen with your case. Also known as the truth, which (by the way you probably already know.) My advice is to just let him do his job -that he is more than capable of doing. Don't ask too many questions or get yourself worked up. Alan will tell you in advance almost the exact outcome of your case to a t. In the end you can feel good about him as a human being because he won't resort to less than favorable behaviour. And by that I mean other attorneys who have to use immature tactics to make up for what they lack as men. Although it is quite entertaining to watch some of them!!!Hahahahaha!!!!! Submitted by JULIE MEDLIN, who JUST WON HER CASE!!!!!!!!! Thank you ALAN KRUSCH!”

  • I think he is one of the best family law attorneys in Mecklenburg County.

    “I endorse this lawyer. I practiced family law extensively in Charlotte in the 1990s and went up against Alan on several cases. He always did a great job protecting his client's interests. He is a very effective advocate in court. I think he is one of the best family law attorneys in Mecklenburg County.”
