Mediation Services for Divorcing Parties
Divorce mediation is quickly becoming an effective and preferred method in solving disputes between a couple divorcing. Instead of waiting to argue the contentious issues of a divorce in court, a couple meets with a neutral third-party, a mediator, to see if the issues in dispute can’t be resolved without having to go to court. Mediation happens outside the courtroom and can be a less-stress environment more conducive to an effective discussion resulting in an agreement to which both parties can agree.
In Southern Utah, parties to a contested divorce are required to attend at least one mediation meeting in good faith. This mediation session must occur before a Utah judge will allow a case to proceed to trial. If you an d your spouse don’t agree to at least one term of the divorce, both of you will have to attend mediation. Call 435.216.1034 to find out more about the mediation rule.
