Legal Representation vs. Mediation
Working as someone's mediator conflicts the professional out of working as either party's attorney, for obvious reasons. One person cannot both be neutral to both parties and an advocate of one party. It is often helpful to have an idea of which type of service and dissolution process you are looking for before you call in but if you have more questions do not hesitate to reach out and ask.
If you are going through a Dissolution of Marriage there are a number of ways that you can go about the process:
- First you can be self-represented. This option would save you attorney's fees but you are likely to be missing some potentially invaluable information. Our office is happy provide BASIC CONSULTING SESSIONS for an hour at a time to guide you through this process.
- Next, there is the traditional route of LEGAL REPRESENTATION. This is where you retain an attorney to work your case to the full extent of your scope of service (usually filing through judgement). This person is your attorney and your advocate. In this capacity your attorney will provide legal advice, opinion and guidance. They will help you draft paperwork and navigate the system with you. Our office can help you with this.
- Another option that is becoming exceedingly popular is MEDIATION. In this capacity a mediator is a neutral third party whose role is to help facilitate discussion and help you navigate the Dissolution process. The mediator does not represent either party, they do not give legal advice or opinion can provide basic information. Often a mediator is used in conjunction with a reviewing attorney. Our office can help you with this as well.
