Understanding Divorce and Mediation
If you and your spouse have decided to file for an amicable divorce, Atkins & Markoff may be able to assist in the mediation process. While many cases of divorce are nasty and present difficulties to agree upon assets and custody rights for both parties, it is not always the case. Divorce mediation is characterized by an out-of-court process that requires both spouses to meet and decide upon a divorce agreement with the assistance of a third party mediator. If you are considering filing for divorce and need guidance on the mediation process, it may be a good idea to contact an attorney at Atkins & Markoff. While we do not offer direct mediation services, we are able to assist in many aspects of the mediation process.
The Role of Mediation in Contested Divorce Cases
In other cases, mediation may be ordered by a family law judge. This typically occurs in the case of a contested divorce when the judge has strong evidence that the two spouses can come to their own agreement in a certain area, such as custody or visitation rights. Our Oklahoma legal team at Atkins & Markoff is experienced with these situations and can provide assistance through the mediation process. If you find yourself in a situation where a judge is asking you to draft your own agreement in a certain area of your divorce, contact us today for information on our legal services.
