Mediation in Waco, Texas
Meditation is an alternative method of dispute resolution that can be used in any family law dispute. It allows you and the other party to settle issues outside of the courtroom with the help of a trained, neutral third party.
Meditation is beneficial because it is structured to maintain privacy and encourage compromise rather than declaring a winner or a loser. It is a confidential, voluntary settlement process. During meditation, you and the other party do not have to be in the same room. Normally each party is in a room with his or her attorney and the mediator will go back and forth until both parties reach an agreement.
Agreements made in meditation are written down informally and become the “mediated settlement agreement.” If properly executed, the agreement is contractually binding on both parties. It is irreversible, except in certain limited circumstances. The judge will use the agreement as a template for the court’s final order or decree.
The meditation process avoids the time, cost, and uncertainty of a trial. Contact us to see if meditation is right for you today.
