Choose Divorce Mediation For A Peaceful Solution

Having a sense of control through divorce can leave you feeling calmer and happier with the outcome. Mediation gives you and your spouse control of the process of divorce. In divorce mediation, you and your spouse work together with neutral third party to resolve your legal issues. This option allows you to determine the outcome for property division, child custody, visitation and more.

Mediation is especially useful for parents. You and your former spouse will need to co-parent after divorce. It is best for the children and the parents to reach a resolution without trial. In the end, parents are the best people to determine the parenting plan, not a judge who has never met them.

Divorce litigation can quickly become stressful and expensive for both parties. Mediation often offers a calmer and less expensive route to divorce. Whitney D. Mauk, P.C., takes a sophisticated approach to the law, encouraging peaceful methods whenever possible. She will walk you through the process step by step to identify if mediation is right for you.

Using Mediation For Other Areas Of Family Law

Mediation is not only used for divorce. Ms. Mauk and the professional legal team at our firm can help you use alternative dispute resolution to solve all types of legal matters such as:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Modifications
  • Contempt issues

Mediation may be preferable to you because you can pick resolutions that fall outside of typical guidelines. For example, child support can be determined in court by the income shares model. Mediation allows you to choose a suitable child support agreement that fits your family's needs, even if it falls outside of the Georgia state guidelines.
