In a divorce you have several options regarding resolving the divorce issues. If you and your ex can work out an amicable agreement their is no need for extensive court intervention. On the other hand, if you are unable to come to an amicable agreement you may need to hire a divorce attorney. In addition, it may be beneficial to attempt to resolve your issues at a mediation session.
The mediation session will require that both parties attend the session voluntarily. In addition, the mediator used must remain a neutral third party throughout the entire session. It is important that the mediator simply guide the flow of conversation and not attempt to provide suggestions, or advice as to how the parties should resolve their conflict.
If you are interested in speaking with a local attorney you may want to ask them if they offer mediation as well. It is important to interview several attorneys until you find one that is a match for you. Furthermore, you will want to ask them whether the consultation is free. Some attorneys offer a free initial consultation.
