Using a Lawyer as a Mediator

Using a Lawyer as a Mediator

Before a mediator is able to take on the task of helping couples come to compromising divorce agreements, they are required to go through extensive training. Not only is it important for divorce mediators to understand how property and rights are divided in a divorce, they must also learn how to balance the personalities between the couple. It is important for divorce mediators to be able to recognize dominance and passive behaviors in order to come to actual fair compromise between both parties. When you work with a qualified mediator, they will pay close attention to the approach and the needs of both parties, and will work to actively apply techniques to correct imbalances. If there is a display of aggressive or dominant behaviors, the mediator will address this concern and may even end the session to let tensions cool. This can be extremely helpful for couples who are looking to compromise but struggle with communication. However, it is important to realize in order for divorce mediation to be successful, both parties will need to focus on working collaboratively.


Who Is Qualified To Mediate?

When it comes to hiring the right mediator for your divorce, you may be wondering how to choose the most qualified candidate. Working with a mediator that has extensive knowledge and experience dealing with property and rights division, such a divorce attorney, is a great way to ensure all details of your divorce are being addressed and handled professionally. This is also a good option for families that are looking to protect their privacy instead of engaging in a public courtroom divorce. Family Law lawyers also make great candidates for mediation because they have seen many divorces play out in courtrooms and know how to streamline the needs of both parties while also avoiding the back and forth litigation that comes with courtroom divorces.
