Mediation

Many Texas judges require divorcing couples or other parties dealing with family law disputes to first go to mediation before a trial takes place. Mediation is a unique process that aims to help two opposing parties come to an agreement on a civil law matter. Instead of going to court and risking a drawn-out, contentious legal battle, mediation features a neutral third party (the mediator) who speaks with each party to help them amicably resolve their case issues.

Mediation consists of the mediator discussing the disputed issues with each party and their legal counsel separately. Unless there is a compelling need for a joint meeting, parties in family law mediation typically reach an agreement without seeing each other. A few important facts about mediation are: 

  • Although mediation is not a judicial proceeding, if the parties enter into a Mediated Settlement Agreement, which is a written agreement, the results are legally binding;
  • The length of mediation can vary, some mediations can take a few hours, while others may take multiple days;
  • The purpose of mediation is to facilitate an agreement between the parties; and 
  • Unlike court proceedings, mediation is confidential.
