Mediation

mediationDivorce is always difficult. Why allow the stress, discomfort and challenges of this time to continue longer than necessary.

At Volman Law, our divorce and family law attorneys want to help you reach a mutually acceptable divorce agreement as quickly and painlessly as possible so the healing can begin.

Connecticut has a 90-day waiting period for a divorce to be finalized. Our goal is to have your divorce case in court on Day 91. In order to reach that goal, we provide our clients with the option of using mediation to work together to arrive at a mutually acceptable resolution to their differences.

The Benefits of Mediation

Mediation offers our divorce clients many benefits, particularly lower costs and faster resolutions. But one of the most significant benefits of mediation is found in the process itself.

Court cases can increase hostility between the two parties. Litigation is contentious and that tendency can be made even worse by the personalities of the lawyers involved.

Mediation, on the other hand, takes the emotional issues of the couple into account. It recognizes the importance of the relationship and the need for a continuing relationship if children are involved. And it puts the decision making power in the hands of the couple, which tends to lead to more appropriate and successful divorce settlement agreements.

What Issues Can Be Mediated?

Any issue that requires a decision can be part of the divorce mediation process:

  • Child custody and visitation, college expenses and vacation plans
  • Health and life insurance
  • Alimony
  • Property and debt division

At Volman Law a neutral third-party mediator will help you arrive at a settlement agreement and an attorney will then draft your agreement and submit it to Connecticut family court.

Why waste time and money fighting when a more civilized process exists to reach a successful resolution to the issues of divorce. Contact the divorce attorneys at Volman Law.
