Diplomatic Mediation Attorney Representing Portland, Tigard & Tualatin Family Law Clients
Mediation as a divorce strategy falls between an uncontested divorce and a contentious divorce in court. If you and your spouse are in enough agreement to rationally negotiate the terms of your divorce, mediation may be a great option for you. We offer mediation services as a third-party neutral to both sides, not providing legal advice or representation to either side. We have helped countless heterosexual, same-sex, and LGBTQ divorce clients handle their cases through mediation and are happy to help you with this as well.
How Does Mediation Work?
Some couples are in general agreement about the terms of their divorce but maybe can’t agree on everything. Still, they would prefer to avoid a court battle if at all possible. This is perfectly normal and reasonable. In this case, it makes the most sense to hire a mediator. A mediator will sit with the two of you to facilitate a negotiation regarding the remaining terms of your divorce. Once you have reached an agreement, he or she can draft the proper documentation to be submitted to the court and your divorce will be finalized after that.
When considering a mediator for your divorce, it is important to choose someone with a successful track record. Attorney Lee Tyler has over 30 years of experience helping countless couples resolve their disagreements in mediation and avoiding painful court appearances. He will serve as an impartial figure who allows you to consider solutions you have overlooked.
