Couples work together with a professional mediator to resolve all of the issues involved in their divorce including division of assets (such as real estate, investment accounts, and retirement benefits), allocation of debts, child and/or spousal support, and parenting arrangements for minor children.
Mediators have different backgrounds and experience. Out-of-Court Solutionsâ€™ mediators are experienced in law, psychology, and business. Our mediators help couples fully understand all of the legal, financial, parenting, and other issues involved in their situation. Our mediators also help couples communicate, negotiate, explore alternative ways of resolving disagreements, and deal with the anger, sadness and other emotions that are likely in these situations. After a couple has reached full agreement, our mediators draft a comprehensive and legally binding settlement agreement.
In mediation, divorcing couples decide what's best for them, rather than surrendering control to attorneys or a judge. They reach agreement based on their particular relationship, needs, and standards. This takes place in a safe, collaborative environment and is significantly less stressful than the adversarial, win-lose procedures involved in court-based proceedings.
Mediation is inexpensive compared to using two separate lawyers -- with retainers ranging from $2,000 to $7,500 and more, from each party. That means you and your spouse will together have to pay $4,000 to $15,000 or more -- just to get started! With Out-of-Court Solutions you pay as you go, avoid all costly legal proceedings, and spend 50 to 75% less -- saving thousands of dollars
All of the mediators with Out-of-Court Solutions have backgrounds in psychology as well as law, have children of their own, and strive to help parents focus on the best interests of their children. In this way, mediation fosters increased communication and reduced anger between parents, and results in less harm to children and more cooperative parenting arrangements.
When one spouse is in physical danger, or is unwilling to participate in good faith, mediation would not be an appropriate choice.
Any of the issues already agreed upon serve as a foundation for resolution of other issues and overall agreement. This expedites the mediation and further reduces the cost.
By law anything said or prepared for mediation is strictly confidential and barred from being used as evidence if you are one of the few couples who do not reach full agreement.
We are very proud of our success rate: over 95% of the couples who mediate with Out-of-Court Solutions reach full agreement.
