Considering Divorce Mediation?
Retain our Daytona Beach mediation attorneys!
In years past, divorce court was the only real option for couples looking
to end their marriage. New alternatives slowly appeared over the years
and mediation was one such option. Rather than fighting for your rights
in front of a judge, mediation puts the control back in your hands and
significantly minimizes the conflict often associated with divorce.
At Buckmaster & Ellzey, we understand that trying something new may
be intimidating. Our Daytona Beach mediation attorneys are committed to
making this process as seamless as possible and doing everything we can
to help you achieve a favorable outcome. We are uniquely trained to handle
mediated divorces, which can inspire the confidence you deserve.
What can I expect from a mediated divorce?
A mediated divorce is comprised of three main individuals – you,
your spouse, and a mediator. The mediator is a neutral third party who
serves to guide both parties toward a satisfactory divorce agreement.
Most significantly, the mediator does not make decisions for either spouse.
They simply encourage open and honest communication throughout the divorce.
Mediators are required to conduct themselves in the following manner:
- Remain neutral and avoid any partiality toward either spouse
- Avoid using force to establish a divorce agreement
- Always work for the mutual benefit of both parties
Mediation covers the same issues as a normal divorce, including property
division, alimony, and child custody. These issues are instead discussed
in such a way that allows both spouses to share their opinions and arrive
at an outcome each individual is happy with.
Couples with children often find that mediation protects the children from
unnecessary conflict and blame-shifting. Mediation can help you establish
common ground, which can last even after the divorce is complete.
While mediation may not be for everyone, it has proven successful in numerous
cases throughout the years. The team at Buckmaster & Ellzey wants
to give you the best possible chance for success, so give us a call. Our
mediation attorneys in Daytona Beach look forward to representing you
during this time.
