Fayetteville Attorneys Guiding You Through Mediation

There is no doubt how stressful the divorce process can seem for anyone who is contemplating filing for one. One way to get through a divorce without the added time, cost and stress of litigation, however, is through the mediation process.

At Miller & Illikainen in Fayetteville, North Carolina, our experienced family law attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in divorce mediation. They understand the advantages of the process and can help you decide if mediation will work best for you and your spouse.

The Benefits Of Family Law Mediation

When you and your spouse enter into mediation, you will sit down with your mediator, who is a neutral "referee." The mediator's job will be to keep you working toward a divorce settlement that you and your spouse can both live with. Our lawyers can be by your side in mediation sessions, or they can review the final settlement to make sure you do not agree to anything that is not in your best interests.

Some advantages of mediation include:

  • The process is private; you and your spouse will not have to worry about airing disagreements in court.
  • You will save time and money compared to litigation.
  • You and your spouse will decide the final outcome of your divorce — including custody, property division and support — rather than a family law judge.
  • Working together now will help you and your ex-spouse work together better in the future, which will be necessary if you have children or ever need to modify the terms of your divorce.
