Using Mediation Effectively In Your Divorce

Divorce is not a one-size-fits-all scenario. The path you choose depends on the key dynamics of your personal situation.

For some divorcing couples, these dynamics point toward mediation rather than traditional litigation. Mediation can be a way for you and your ex to work the issues out for yourselves, with help from a neutral party.

I am attorney Donald Fraker. As an experienced family law attorney, I can help you arrange for mediation and protect your interests throughout that process. Give a call today to discuss your particular circumstances. From my office in Mequon, I serve clients in the Milwaukee area and across Southeastern Wisconsin.

Is Mediation The Best Way To Resolve Your Issues?

Divorce mediation is one way to help divorcing couples reach agreements. In a confidential process, both parties (and perhaps their lawyers) meet with a neutral mediator, who will guide you through the process and help you develop a plan that works.

I have a proven record of resolving family law issues. As your attorney, one step I can take is to help you find the right mediator, who likely will fit into one of the following categories:

  • Directive mediator: Usually a former judge, a directive mediator will tell you what they would decide if they were handling the case and advise you that you might want to act in accordance with his/her opinions.
  • Nondirective mediator: A nondirective mediator will listen to your concerns and work with you to negotiate a settlement without telling you what plan to follow. This is a good option for people facing emotional roadblocks which could impede negotiations.
