Divorce Mediation Utah

Utah divorce mediation is a great way to resolve any disputes that cannot be resolved between the parties. Because mediation doesn’t require the same legal preparation mediation is a more cost-effective way for the parties to resolve disputes than resolving the dispute through court litigation. The costs of mediation are usually shared between the parties.  Our Utah divorce attorneys can help you through the mediation process to find creative solutions that are almost always more acceptable to the parties than an expensive and rigid court ruling.

Because mediation encourages collaborative solutions, it can be an effective way to resolve disputes that the parties usually find more mutually acceptable. Mediation is not effective in every situation, it does generally offer the following benefits:

  • the parties are directly involved in finding acceptable solutions, so they are generally more satisfied with the outcome;
  • mediation is less expensive than court litigation;
  • mediation resolves issues more quickly;
  • mediation is less combative, so it is less stressful than a court hearing; and
  • mediation helps reduce the friction between the parties.

Utah Divorce Mediation Requirement

In recognition that mediation is a less expensive solution and often leads to better results for all parties, divorce mediation in Utah is generally required  if the respondent files an answer to a petition for divorce and there are any unresolved disputes. The mediation requirement can only be waived in limited situations, so most parties involved in divorce in Utah should expect to engage in mediation. Our Utah divorce mediation attorney can help you negotiate any disputed issues during mediation to help minimize the expense of divorce. Schedule a free initial consultation today!

How Do We Find A Mediator?

The parties involved in divorce must mutually agree upon a qualified mediator. We work with opposing counsel to identify a impartial, qualified, and effective mediator. There are a number of court-approved mediators, but not all court-approved mediators are familiar with family law issues in Utah. We will help identify a mediator who is very familiar with family law issues and who is a good negotiator to help reduce areas of disagreement.
