Beware The Pitfalls Of Mediation
Divorce mediation has a nice sound to it. Both parties simply agree to what is best in a divorce settlement. The focus, however, is usually on a rush to the finish line rather than developing a divorce settlement that meets the needs of both parties. Do not be pressured into a hurried mediated settlement that may haunt you for years to come. It is in your best interest to discuss your divorce with a knowledgeable attorney like me, Steve Stolar, at Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation.

Providing Thorough And Attentive Guidance
The issues that need to be settled in a divorce can be complex. A mediator is seeking agreement, but the decision will have to be lived with for many years to come, even a lifetime. My firm has helped clients undo the damage of mishandled mediation. To be certain of a fair settlement, each party in a divorce should be advised by an attorney responsible only to them.
It is easy to be overwhelmed by what may seem like logical reasoning only to learn later that your rights were not protected. Every issue in your divorce should be reviewed by an attorney who has one responsibility: protecting your best interests. If you are close to an agreement with your spouse, you may be surprised at how economical it can be to have a divorce lawyer review the issues with you and protect your rights and interests.
My firm can help you review the following aspects of your divorce:
- Child custody and visitation
- Division of community property and debts
- Child support — also an issue for unmarried parents
- Spousal support or alimony
