Mediation: An Effective Alternative To Traditional Divorce

Are you currently in the middle of a divorce or dealing with another complex family law matter? Although litigation may seem like the only answer, there are other types of alternative dispute resolutions available to sort out the issues involved in your divorce. Our Richmond mediation attorneys at DeFazio Bal have over 55 years of combined experience using mediation to resolve a variety of family law matters. We are committed to serving clients throughout Virginia with sound legal guidance to avoid litigation.

Resolving Issues With Mediation

As an alternative dispute resolution, mediation is performed outside of court. This means that you will not have to pay the extra expenses of litigation and that the choices made in your divorce will not be left to a judge. Mediation allows you and your spouse to discuss and work out your various legal issues before a mediator, rather than before a judge.

Mediation can be used to resolve a variety of family law issues, including:

  • Child and spousal support
  • Property and asset division
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Post-divorce appeals

Benefits Of Mediation

Traditional litigation can drag on for months or even years, carry significant expenses and make your issues public in court. Mediation, on the other hand, avoids these significant costs and allows you and your spouse to discuss your issues and resolve them in a relaxed environment.
