Get a Gerogia Divorce Without Hiring a Lawyer



Mediated Divorce

While divorce mediation is still a new idea in some parts of the country, it is ever increasingly well-known and widely accepted.  You and your spouse would sit down in the same room with each other and with our neutral mediator. With our mediator's help, you would work through all the issues you need to resolve so the two of you can get through your divorce.

The mediator always remains neutral between the husband and the wife. The mediator can't give advice to either party, and is not acting as legal counsel for either party. What the mediator can do, though, is to point out in open session to both spouses things that each of them should be aware of about what they're trying to accomplish. That open and free exchange of information frees up both spouses to negotiate with each other in confidence. Because both spouses are working with the same base of information, it usually takes far less time to negotiate a resolution that makes sense to both spouses.

How Do I Get Started with a Mediated Divorce

The first step is scheduling an appointment for you and your spouse with one of our mediators. If a mediated divorce is being contemplated, you should not call for an individual appointment first, because that may cause your spouse to be distrustful of the mediation process. You may also send your spouse an e-mail containing more information about this process and our firm, and inviting him/or her to consider mediation as an option. 

Typically, the parties meet with the mediator and initially discuss the outstanding issues, decide what issues are in dispute and how each party expects the issues to be resolved. In most cases the issues can be resolved in this first meeting and mediator will give you all the forms and paperwork needed to file your case. You then just wait for your date to go before the judge for your final decree. When the judge signs the final decree your are divorced.

How Much Does it Cost?

The cost of your mediated divorce will depend on the number and complexity of issues in your case. Our mediated divorces start at $199.00.

Advantages of a Mediated Divorce

There are a number of advantages to getting divorced without a lawyer. Some of the advantages are:

  • Reduced attorneys fees and cost, since paying for one mediator instead of two attorneys and mediated divorces normally are done much quicker.

  • Faster resolution to your case. In many cases when an attorney represents one party the attorney may use delaying tactics. A mediator is a neutral and reaching an agreement is his sole objective.

  • Keeps you and your spouse in control of your own divorce, not an attorney or a judge. That makes all the difference in your recovering from your divorce and moving on with your life.
  • Reduced emotional strain. Working together to resolve the issues of the divorce is much more likely to foster and after-divorce relationship of cooperation instead of hostility, which is so often the case in and adversarial divorce divorce.
