A Firm Guiding You Through Divorce Mediation

Divorce is a difficult and life-altering experience. Even on a practical level, divorce is difficult because it requires two people to separate their finances and other aspects of their lives that had long been intermingled. And couples are asked to make these decisions while trying to cope with the hurt and anger that they may be feeling.

Under circumstances like these, litigation can sometimes do more harm than good. For instance, some couples spend significant time and money fighting over household items that could easily and cheaply be replaced. When spouses use the divorce process to hurt or punish one another, both spouses suffer and neither spouse benefits.

Choosing A More Amicable Solution

If both parties can negotiate in good faith, divorce mediation often produces mutually agreeable outcomes with a minimal amount of stress and conflict. Topics to be discussed and negotiated may include:

  • Property division (including possession of the marital residence)
  • Division of unique assets such as a closely-held business
  • Division of retirement assets
  • Division of jointly held debts
  • Spousal support (both whether it is needed and in what amount)
  • Child support
  • Parenting time (the new Tennessee term for child custody and visitation)

During mediation sessions, you and your spouse can each be represented by your own attorneys. But you also have the option of simply working directly with the mediator. In either case, the mediator serves as a neutral third party who wants to reach a fair settlement that is beneficial to both parties.
