Experienced North Carolina Mediation Attorneys

The high volume of divorce cases traveling through the courts has prompted some jurisdictions to adopt mandatory divorce mediation and negotiations. It is common for the court to order mediation in child custody cases. If it appears to the court that financial matters could also be resolved through talks, mediation may be required in the overall divorce as well. That is mainly because many of the issues facing estranged couples are resolvable when clear heads prevail. If both sides are willing to negotiate, a Billick Family Law attorney can help resolve many issues by working with the lawyer on the other side.

The mediation process involves the attorneys and parties discussing the marital assets, support, child custody and other relevant issues with their clients. By providing a baseline about how North Carolina law is commonly applied, everyone can have a basic working knowledge of what fairness means in a legal sense. With a greater understanding about the legal implications, spouses are encouraged to move toward agreement that reflects prevailing laws. Some issues fall into place easily and others require more extensive negotiations.
