Things To Know About Mediation In Texas

Privacy In Mediation

Mediation is confidential and the judge only sees the final agreement. Privacy rules allow both parties to be flexible and offer solutions that might not be approved by the court. Also, matters discussed during mediation cannot be used against them later on.

Control

While having an objective third party can sometimes be helpful, most people will agree that you and your spouse are the best architects of your family after divorce. Mediation allows you to control the outcome, rather than leaving these decisions to the courts.

Affordability

The cost of mediation is significantly lower than litigation as it takes far less time, and is handled outside the courtroom. It is often attractive for parties to save money and ensure that funds are maintained maintained within the family as they address the children’s matters post divorce.

Long Term Benefits

Families with children will be able to interact for many years post mediation. The emotional benefit can be felt for years as parties often create the best possible solution for everyone involved simultaneously.
