Honolulu Divorce Resolutions Through Mediation
Getting a divorce does not mean that you have to fight in court to resolve things. Instead of letting a judge decide the final outcome of a divorce, you can take things into your own hands and pursue mediation as an alternative dispute resolution (ADR). More and more spouses are seeking this method of ending their marriage, and a skilled family law attorney can help you through it.
At Coates Frey & Hackett, AAL LLLC, we have been helping clients throughout Honolulu, Oahu and the surrounding areas for more than three decades. Any Hawaiian knows that ‘Ohana means everything. We wrote the book on protecting you and your family through your divorce with the benefits of mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
What Mediation Can Offer You
Mediation in a divorce allows spouses to create the terms of their divorce, including through matters such as asset division, child support and alimony, and custody and visitation agreements. Without a mediator, these discussions can often lose their way to a swift resolution.
Many of our attorneys are experienced mediators who can oversee the mediation process. Their role in these divorces is to keep both parties civil, focused on the task at hand and help both parties reach compromises when necessary. These services can have a considerable upside for both parties when mediation is successful.
One primary benefit is the time management of mediation. Instead of being at the mercy of a court’s schedule, you and your spouse can collaborate to set a schedule that works for everyone and even allows you not to miss work in the process. This can help both sides save time and money in the long run.
Additionally, instead of hoping a judge finds in your favor, your cooperation can help you and your spouse earn an outcome that leaves everyone satisfied with the outcome.
Learn Whether Mediation Can Help You
Mediation is not always an option for divorcing couples. If at least one spouse is resistant to cooperation, mediation may not be successful.
