Mediation

Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution in Divorce

While the courtroom is an appropriate setting to handle many disputes, it can make domestic matters more complicated and ultimately result in decisions that neither party wanted. Mediation allows you and your spouse to resolve differences out of court. With the assistance of a mediator, you can focus on the important issues and work towards a tailored solution for your family. At Bleczinski, Kleiman & Klein, LLC, our attorneys have experience both as mediators and advisors for clients participating in the mediation process.

Call 888-678-5016 or contact us by e-mail for an initial consultation or case evaluation. Our attorneys are dedicated to finding lasting solutions for you and your family.

Benefits to pursuing mediation and other ADR methods:

  • It is less expensive and saves you court costs and attorneys fees
  • The process is usually faster
  • Divorce details can be kept out of the public record
  • You and your spouse will have more control over the outcome
  • You can devise personalized solutions to account for your family's specific needs
  • You can preserve relationships and prevent contentious court battles
  • You can address matters that may not be recognized by a court

Do I need an attorney through the mediation process?

Working with an attorney during mediation can give you a better understanding of your rights, options and the possible outcomes. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators dedicated to helping you protect your rights and the best interests of your family. As mediators, our priority is to facilitate an agreement between the parties and help them resolve issues while allowing them to fully express their positions.

The mediator must remain neutral and so cannot represent either party. One of our attorneys, Daryl Endy Klein, is a trained mediator affiliated with Mediation Works. We also can help prepare our clients for the mediation process, and represent them during mediation if appropriate.

Mediation and Collaborative law

An exciting, new form of alternative dispute resolution is called collaborative family law. This is an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to resolving issues involved in divorce. In this approach, the parties sign a contract agreeing not to take the matter to court, but rather to make a good faith attempt to reach an agreement on all issues. Each agrees to fully disclose their assets to the other party. If no agreement is reached, and a party decides to litigate, both attorneys must resign. An important part of the collaborative law process is the use of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals to assist the parties as needed. This team may include experienced domestic relations lawyers for each party, mental health professionals, a mutually selected neutral financial advisor and a child specialist, all trained in collaborative divorce.
