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.

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 mediators, we act 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 a family law 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.
