Coon Rapids Divorce Lawyer
Keeping Costs Down
Mediation is a great way to have control over your divorce. After the divorce proceeding have been initiated, the parties will exchange documents concerning their income, assets, and debts. This is called discovery. Once the discovery process has been completed, the parties may be ready to resolve their issues at mediation. Mediation involves both parties and their attorneys arriving at the office of a neutral mediator. The parties generally are situated in separate rooms with their attorney and the mediator meets with both parties separately. The mediator goes back and forth between the rooms and works to help the parties reach an agreement that they both are happy with. Most attorneys will tell you that it is best, if at all possible, to settle your divorce on your own terms, without the court making the decisions for you.
