Divorce Mediation Lawyers in Wilmington NC

Mediation, or structured negotiation, provides an alternative to traditional divorce negotiations and court disputes. Conducted in a private setting, divorce mediators work with both spouses to reach an agreement that works for their unique situation, rather than relying on what the courts decide for them. An experianced lawyer provides you with the edge you need to control the negotiation, rather than the negotiation controlling you.

In North Carolina, mediation is required before trial for certain family law issues, such as for child custody and equitable distribution. However, it is in your best interests to consider this option beforehand to save emotional and financial expense. Make no mistake, the terms agreed to at the negotiating table are long lasting. Equipping yourself with a team that has the skills to fight for your rights and the talent to explain exactly how they are doing it is essential to a great outcome.
