Experienced Family Law Mediators Brookings, SD
Divorce is a very contentious issue which can lead to ongoing disagreements. For this reason, many people are now considering mediation as an alternative to litigation. South Dakota has a number of excellent retired Judges and experienced lawyers who provide mediation services. Mediation can be an extremely effective tool for people needing to resolve any or all aspects of their divorce.
What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation involves both parties of a divorce meeting with a mediator in order to help the parties resolve various issues related to their divorce, i.e. child custody, visitation, property division, etc. If you are considering divorce mediation, an experienced South Dakota divorce mediation lawyer at Helsper, McCarty and Rasmussen Law Firm can attend mediation with you and ensure that your rights are protected.
Why Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a favorable option for many reasons. First and foremost, divorce mediation is far more cost effective than litigation. When a divorce case heads to court, as is the case in many contested divorce cases, the legal costs can quickly add up. Time is another factor that makes mediation a desirable choice. While divorce cases heard in court can take many months or even a year or more to resolve, divorce cases that can be settled through mediation typically take much less time. Furthermore, by reaching agreements quickly, both parties can save themselves a great deal of money.
Another positive aspect of mediation is that a judge does not rule on the issues involved. When a divorce case is litigated in court, the judge will make all decisions in regards to property division, spousal support, child custody, etc. In mediation, the parties have control over how these issues should be settled, giving them the opportunity to work towards reaching an agreement without interference from a judge.
