In traditional divorces, both spouses will have the option to hire an attorney for legal representation. These attorneys will work privately for one spouse and represent them in court appearances. These two attorneys will engage in litigation, reporting back to their clients throughout the divorce negotiation process. However, it is possible for couples looking for a private alternative to divorce to skip the back and forth, drawn out, legal process by choosing to have their divorce mediated.
Divorce mediation is the process in which both spouses work together with a neutral third party to come to a divorce agreement that fits both of their needs. These divorces are different than traditional divorces because the details of these cases are kept private, the solutions are reached collaboratively, and there is no need to hire two attorneys- making it more cost efficient.
If you and your spouse are looking to file for divorce, the attorneys at Renken Law Firm can help you. Whether you choose to file a contested divorce, uncontested divorce, or are looking to have your divorce mediated by a neutral third party, we can help you. Contact us today to learn more about our family law practice and what steps you can take today to help begin your divorce process.
Who Should I Hire As A Mediator?
When choosing a mediator for your divorce case, you will want to work with someone who has legal experience in divorce. A family law attorney, such as Dawn Renken who is a Licensed Mediator through ADR Services International Inc. can help ensure your divorce is being mediated fairly and with thorough consideration for both parties needs. Attorney Renken will help you to understand your rights and ensure all matters are handled with transparency so there will be no question on the division of property or responsibility.
Traditional public divorces are not always the best option because they quickly can become costly and lack the privacy that many couples are looking for. This is because traditional divorces require both parties hiring the services of their own attorney, and are held in courtrooms. Anything that takes place in a courtroom is documented and becomes publicly accessible. If a traditional and drawn out, public divorce does not fit the needs of your family, contact Renken Law Firm.
