Divorce Mediation in Las Vegas
For those that are considering
divorce in the future, you may have heard from friends how difficult their court
cases were. Each divorce is unique, so you can't always compare your
case to others. While your friends may have had long battles in court
that drained their assets before the process was finally over, such situations
are not faced by everyone. There are options that may help you avoid this.
To better determine how your case should be handled, turn to a Las Vegas
divorce lawyer from the
Gordon Law Offices. There are a number of ways that a divorce case can go and we'll review
your case to help get you started on the right track.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce
Many instances of divorce are what are known as "contested."
In this, the couple is unable to come to an agreement, resulting in heated
tension and differing views on who deserves what. This is understandable
since there is likely already conflict, and a divorce can bring out this
tension. For a couple that cannot agree on the details of their divorce
– or even in some cases where they both want to end the marriage
contested divorce may be more difficult, but it may also be more necessary.
Uncontested divorces occur when the two spouses need separate representation, but
are in agreement that they will make the effort to
work together toward an outcome that works for both of them. This can often involve
the mindset of "you win some and you lose some." Both parties
will often need to compromise in these cases, but
litigation is avoided so that there is no heated fight before a family law judge.
Divorce Mediation – Avoid the Courtroom Battle
One option for uncontested divorce is what is known as mediation. Through
meditation, the two parties work together with the same attorney. The
fact that only one attorney is used is one of the more defining features
of mediation. This alone can
cut down on the cost of divorce and relieve some of the tension when there aren't two different lawyers
arguing with each other and only looking out for their own client.
In mediation, the couple will be more likely to have the same mindset regarding
what the final outcome should look like. They may not each get everything
they want, but sometimes it is more important to clients that the resolution is
fast and affordable. One of the major benefits of mediation is that it can be quicker than
Without both sides contesting each aspect of the divorce, the terms can
be set forth and approved in order to move on to the next step. The court
will be more likely to approve the terms and there will be no need for
an elongated case such as many contested divorcees face. Mediation can
come with a wealth of benefits as long as it is handled correctly. Mistakes
can end up being more harmful and may leave long-lasting consequences
or errors that delay the process. When you are choosing how to go about
your divorce, you want to start with the services of a skilled lawyer.
You can gain access to such services by calling Gordon Law Offices and
