The Mediation Process: Honest, Fair and Reasonable
Rick Borg has more than 35 years of experience. As a divorce attorney with so much experience, Rick has literally "seen it all." And in his experience, he has found that the mediation process — for the vast majority of clients — is simply better for them and their kids.
So How Does It Work?
Mediation is an open forum involving you, your attorney, your spouse and his or her attorney. In the forum, all divorce matters are placed on the table, and all opinions are respected. Throughout these discussions and negotiations, control over your future, your finances and your kids' futures stays in your hands and out of the hands of a judge you have never met.
The parties agree to reach decisions on all divorce matters. The parties mutually arrive at a divorce settlement agreement that includes decisions about:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Property and asset division
When both parties commit to the process, resolution can be obtained in a cost-effective, timely and relatively amicable manner. Mediation brings closure and sets the foundation for facilitating positive post-divorce relationships in the future.
The parties essentially present the divorce settlement agreement to the court, it is approved, and the divorce is finalized.
Our law firm finds that most people emerge from the mediation process with their wits intact. While the process of divorce — no matter what method you use — is never easy, it is our hope that mediation will minimize any unnecessary expense, pain and stress.
