Our courts require we attend mediation before going to trial.
Your attorney will attend mediation with you. You, your attorney, your spouse and your spouse’s attorney will meet with a mediator. A mediator is usually another attorney with mediation training. We will attempt to settle your case with the mediator.
If settlement cannot be reached with the mediator, then your matter will be prepared for trial. Waiting for trial dates can be a long process, and we will probably talk often about minor matters that come up between you and your spouse until the trial is heard.
