The Difference Between Family Law Mediation & Litigation in Texas
How Does the Mediation Process Work?
Mediation is a process that allows you and your former spouse to dictate the terms of your divorce settlement. Both parties are required to attend a mediation session where a neutral, third-party mediator, such as one of our Houston divorce lawyers, will help you come to an agreement about the various issues presented by your divorce.
