The Difference Between Family Law Mediation & Litigation in Texas

Unfortunately, divorce litigation can be costly, time-consuming, and stressful. Not only that, but it takes the decision-making power away from the couple and puts it in the hand of a family law judge. If you are looking for a way to settle your divorce amicably, affordably, and efficiently, mediation may be right for you. This process allows both parties to maintain control over the outcome of their divorce.
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.

Some of the issues that will be addressed during mediation include:

The role of the mediator is to facilitate a mutual agreement between the parties and prevent the need for a trial. If certain issues cannot be resolved during mediation, however, litigation may be necessary. For this reason, mediation will only be effective if both spouses are willing to cooperate.
