How to Get Started with a Mediated Divorce
The first thing you should do if you are
considering a mediated divorce is to discuss it with your
spouse. Are the two of you likely to be able to reach an
agreement on property settlement, child custody and support?
If you can it will save you thousands of dollars of legal
fees and much heartache and hard feelings. The vast majority
of couples can and do reach a settlement agreement on all
issues. The next thing is will both spouses agree to a
mediated divorce? In Georgia, and many other states,
mediation is required before a divorce can be contested
before the court.
If you and your spouse think that there is at least some likelihood of
reaching a settlement on the issues and you both wish to proceed with a mediated
divorce, fill out the contact form and submit it and we will contact you to set
up an appointment for the mediation.
The $199 mediation fee must be paid at the time of mediation.
Filings fees can be paid later.
