I encourage people to mediate their case instead of allowing a stranger (the judge) to determine what is right for them and their children. You know what will work best for your family!
I do mediations at the beginning of a divorce (temporary orders) and mediations before trial.
A caring professional with advanced training (member of the State Bar College of Texas for taking lots for continuing legal education classes as well as advanced mediation training classes) for one of the most difficult times of your life.
Even though your relationship is ending, if you have children together, you will continue to co-parent for the rest of your lives! In fact, you will be co-grandparenting your grandchildren.
I am able to mediate night & week-ends to accommodate most people's busy schedules.
My prices are set to make mediation affordable to everyone. A 4-hour mediation begins at $250 per side (or $500 for 4 hours) then $62.50/hour per side if you decide to continue past the initial 4-hour session. I only schedule one mediation per day so that I am not rushed to finish your mediation session.
Most mediations are one session, however, since the parties are in control of the mediation process, there are times that the parties have wanted to have leave and gather additional information then return to complete their negotiations.
When acting as a mediator, I am unable to act as an attorney. Therefore, I urge parties to retain legal counsel. I am also unable to prepare legal documents.
The Mediated Legal Agreement is written in plain, easy to understand English so an attorney will need to prepare the final paperwork in "legaleze" for a Judge to sign.
