North Texas Lawyers Offer Mediation to Divorcing Couples

Denton attorneys ease the trauma of family breakups by encouraging settlement

Divorce can be an emotional and stressful event, fraught with conflict over such issues as the division of property and the custody and support of children. Fortunately, you and your spouse may be able to avoid exacerbating these problems by hiring a mediator to help you reach an agreement. At Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, LLP, with offices in Denton, Flower Mound, and Gainesville, we put the legal knowledge and experience we have gained from more than 30 years of divorce and family law practice to work as effective and compassionate divorce mediators. We help couples to end their marriages on their terms and in their own time.

Skilled lawyers explain how divorce mediation works

Mediation is a confidential form of alternative dispute resolution in which the mediator acts as a neutral third party. In divorce mediation, the mediator meets with the divorcing spouses and their attorneys to discuss and resolve issues such as property division, child custody and support, and alimony. As mediators, we don’t make any decisions: we help guide the two parties to work out what is best for them and their children.

Proven mediators help you reach agreement on important issues

As mediators, we can help you and your spouse resolve the issues that arise in the course of your divorce or after it, including:

  • How your marital property and debts should be divided between you, as well as what property should not be divided
  • Whether one spouse should receive alimony from the other and, if so, in what amount
  • The paternity of children
  • Child custody and visitation arrangements
  • Who pays child support and in what amount
  • How to resolve disputes over compliance with a prior divorce agreement or decree
  • Modification of an existing divorce agreement or decree that no longer serves the couple’s interests or those of their children

We can also mediate issues for those who choose legal separation rather than divorce. The scope of our mediation is up to the parties involved.

Responsive counselors advise on the benefits of mediation for divorce

Mediation is a structured method of negotiating a divorce settlement. The process offers several advantages over litigation:

  • It is much less expensive, time-consuming and confrontational. You choose when the sessions take place, so the process isn’t dependent upon a court calendar.
  • It is confidential, allowing you to discuss your personal issues privately.
  • It gives you and your attorney more control over the process and allows you to decide the conditions of your divorce rather than having a court make those decisions.
  • It helps build trust, which is especially important for divorcing parents who will need to remain in each other’s life for the sake of their children.

Mediation is not for all divorcing couples. Some may not be able to negotiate in good faith, but for those who are willing to follow through, our mediators can help ease the process of ending your marriage.
