What is a Divorce Mediator’s Role?
In divorce mediation, the primary role of the mediator is to remain neutral throughout all proceedings. A mediator should not give advice to either party, nor can he or she act as either party’s attorney. The mediator can facilitate the ability for both parties to exchange information and try to build some level of trust so that the mediation process can succeed.
Lawyer’s Role in Divorce Mediation
If you do have a lawyer, you can bring him or her with you to all mediation proceedings. Your attorney can advise you whether he or she should be present during any divorce mediation proceedings.
Specialists in Divorce & Custody Mediation
While conflict is often seen as inevitable in the divorce process, it doesn’t have to be. Exploring the possibilities of mediation allows you to work towards an agreement that serves both parties in a flexible, confidential and cost effective manner. It is our hope at Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn that mediation will create a mechanism that will enable both of you to continue your lives equipped to handle any conflicts that may arise between you, especially as it relates to children.
During many divorces, both parties will wonder who will get cars, the house and other possessions. In most cases, any property or debt that was acquired during the marriage is divided equally between both parties. However, there can be exceptions to this rule. If a prenuptial agreement was in place, this will be taken into account, or if property was acquired prior to the marriage, it may belong exclusively to one party.
At Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn, we we can help equitably divide your assets and debts in a manner that benefits both parties, as well as any children that may be involved.
