Mediation and Alternatives to Divorce Court
A traditional divorce generally requires litigation and time in court, arguing before a judge, who will pass down a final decree. This places your future, your finances and your relationship with your children entire in the hands of a judge.
This is a necessary process for many couples, especially if they firmly disagree on any point of the divorce decree. Other couples, however, are parting ways on amicable terms and don’t wish to leave the decision to a judge following a costly litigation battle.
Luckily, there are options. Mediation can provide a less expensive alternative that offers some level of control in the decisions that will affect your divorce and your future.

Understanding Family Law Mediation in North Carolina
Mediation is an opportunity to resolve your family-related dispute without litigation. In mediation, a neutral third party helps you and your ex-spouse work through your issues, including:
- Division of marital property
- Child custody
- Child support
You and your ex-spouse will be able to choose a mediator who works for you and can help you work together to achieve your goals. Mediation also allows you to custom-tailor your divorce to meet your needs.
It is important to note that mediation cannot actually finalize your divorce. All issues in your divorce can be decided through mediation, but the divorce itself must be filed through the court system to be finalized. We can help you mediate the issues that matter to you and file your final divorce.
