Many Texas divorce cases settle outside of the court forum. You may be wondering why you should attend mediation and you may just be ready to have your day in court. Attending mediation doesn't mean that you are giving up on your day in court and in many instances a Texas court of law will require the parties to attend mediation before any contested hearing, especially if child custody is involved or their are complex property issues to be litigated. If you are interested in learning more about mediating your case then the Law Office of Chad Zubi can assist you with that and can be reached by phone at 281-962-3877 or by filling in and submitting your contact information on this website.
You are in a better position to understand your life than a court is. For this reason mediation is a great place for you and your soon to be ex-spouse to come to custom agreements regarding many issues that arise in a divorce or other family law case. Some of these issues include child visitation, the right to designate where a child lives, the matter of child support, spousal support, and property division. A court in Texas will generally not veer from what is mandated by the Texas Family Code and you can expect an approach that does not take into consideration every issue that is important to you. For this reason you should consider mediation an opportunity rather than a setback in obtaining your objectives during your family law case. The Law Office of Chad Zubi has experience representing people in mediation and encourages you not to go at it alone. Call the office at 281-962-3877 to schedule your free consultation.
If you are nervous about being in the same room with your spouse during a mediation then don't be. Mediation is meant to be a non adversarial environment where you are free to work together with your attorney and the mediator to come to an agreement that everyone can live with. That being said, most times the parties are placed in different rooms and the neutral mediator will travel back and forth between rooms to help the parties reach an agreement.
