How Does Divorce Mediation Work in Texas?
Mediation is a valuable tool in conflict resolution. It is also possible that the court has ordered you to use family mediation to settle disputes. Regardless of why you need mediation, the ultimate goal is conflict resolution. When seeking conflict resolution, the divorce process can be a lot easier because a couple can make well-informed decisions. Together, a fair resolution can be reached that will work for both you and your children now and in the future.
It is important to note that mediation is non-binding. This means that the individual acting as the mediator is not authorized to force either party to agree to anything. Mediation is also confidential. Nothing said during mediation can be used against either one of the parties involved.
