Dallas Fort Worth Mediation
The Family Law Offices of David Kohm Offers Mediation Services to Resolve Family Conflicts
Arlington TX Divorce Attorney David Kohm and his team of qualified attorneys know that mediation is all about communication and cooperation. If these two elements are present between the client and their soon to be ex-spouse, then creating an agreement that resolves the family dispute is much more palatable than going through the court process of divorce. Divorce is like an IRS audit, no one wants to be there. With mediation, you may believe that it will solve all your issues but you have to know that both spouses have to be mutually cooperative during the entire process, and honestly this is sometimes next to impossible. Many times clients start out going through the mediation process and realize that their only recourse is divorce, but for those who do solve their issues using a mediator they will find that there is a lot less emotional, psychological, and financial costs when all is said and done.
For there to be success with mediation, both spouses need to set aside their emotions and focus on the issues at hand. During this process there must be some give-and-take from each party and each of you will be asked to yield on some issues that you originally told yourself there would be no compromise. Mediation is about what is best for the family, not about the individual, especially when there are minor children involved and you have issues of child custody.
Our Dallas-Fort Worth Family Law Firm realizes that mediation isn’t going to repair your relationship but with our guidance and support we can help you create a family blueprint that allows you to both go on living separately while ensuring that your children are still cared for by their mom and dad even if you’re not living under the same roof.
Reasons you may want to consider mediation:
• Financially, mediation is cheaper than divorce.
• Because you both created the agreement, it’s much easier to follow and live with than what the family law judge may have decreed.
• Your mediation agreement is amendable. As time passes and situations change you both can modify the terms if need be without third parties telling you what to do.
• Communication improves between parents and children as all become involved in making sure the focus is on what’s best for the family.
For there to be success with this process you really need to first determine what the upside is as much as the downside. If after reading this you and your soon-to-be-ex spouse can agree this is the way to go, then please call our office to set up an appointment. If you found that there is no possible way for both of you to sit down and map out a workable family agreement, then we can help you should you decide divorce is the only alternative. Call the Law Offices of David Kohm and we’ll meet with you to discuss your questions and concerns. Remember we’re on your side.
