How Does Family Law Mediation Work in Texas?

In the simplest terms, family law mediation is a private process that allows a third party, often referred to as the mediator, to help individuals (often spouses) in a dispute reach a settlement with terms that are mutually beneficial for everyone involved. This includes agreeing to terms over any and all necessary disputes, including any of the following:

  • Property & Asset Division
  • Child Custody & Visitation
  • Child Support 
  • Alimony
  • Other Disputes & Disagreements

Additionally, it's important to remember that a mediator does not act as a counselor or judge, but rather works to assist all parties involved as they work toward reaching an amicable and voluntary agreement on all issues. With an experienced Texas family law mediator working to help you through the mediation process, you and your partner will be able to retain complete control over all major decisions — providing you with a better chance to arrive at an amicable solution that meets everyone's needs.

The Benefits of Family Law Mediation

Despite what you may think, mediation is actually one of the more commonly used methods of dispute resolution when it comes to settling matters of divorce, property division, and other common family law disputes. This is because there are a number of different benefits that family law mediation can offer that you may not find should you choose to settle your legal matters in court.

Mediation Can Help You Save Money

Unsurprisingly, opting for family law mediation can end up saving you a lot of money in the long run when compared to a lengthy legal dispute in court. Having the opportunity to discuss and negotiate terms with your partner outside of the courtroom can go a long way toward making the entire process more affordable for all parties involved.

Mediation Offers Customizable Solutions

Another major benefit of pursuing family law mediation is that it provides you with the opportunity to craft legal solutions that can be specifically tailored to meet the needs of both you and your spouse or loved one. Time and legal constraints can always make it difficult for judges to work with couples to outline agreeable terms in court. With an experienced family law mediator overseeing the mediation process for you and your partner, you'll have the time and the tools needed to craft and negotiate specific terms that meet your unique needs.

Mediation Offers Strict Confidentiality

Traditional conflict resolution methods often require disputes to be hashed out and settled in a public courtroom. When you choose to pursue family law mediation, you'll have complete privacy and confidentiality from start to finish. Any details discussed in negotiations will remain between the spouses involved and the mediator. This will allow you to discuss freely any disputes that contributed to any conflict, including sensitive topics such as abuse, neglect, and infidelity. With a trusted family law mediation attorney working for you, you can rest easy knowing the details of your dispute will remain confidential.
