Las Vegas Divorce Mediation Attorneys
What do Las Vegas Divorce Mediation Attorneys do?
Divorce mediation is a course of action whereby an independent family law mediator attempts to facilitate a negotiated settlement between you and your spouse. There are two ways in which we can assist you in the divorce mediation process. In the first instance, one of our Las Vegas divorce mediation attorneys can act as the mediator. We can also provide you legal counsel during the mediation process with another Las Vegas divorce mediation lawyer.
Mediation can be helpful in resolving outstanding issues related to child custody, child support, alimony, and the division of assets and debts. Mediation can also occur after a decree of divorce has been filed with the Clark County Family Court. This is known as post-divorce mediation.
Mediation offers both parties many benefits. It's generally faster, less costly, and less stressful, and more confidential than having your matter resolved through the family courts. As each divorce case is unique, the length of the mediation process will vary according to the circumstances of your case.
The mediation process can be terminated at any point by either party. Neither you nor your spouse is bound to the terms discussed as part of the mediation process. If an agreement is reached, the terms and conditions of the settlement will be documented and must be signed and notarized by both parties before becoming part of the official court record.
Are Las Vegas Divorce Mediation Attorneys Right For You?
Mediation may be right for your divorce case if both you and your spouse are able to negotiate in good faith. Successful mediation requires that both parties work in earnest to come to a settlement agreement. The mediation process is unlikely to be successful if one or both spouses attempt to use the process as a stalling tactic or approach the process without the intent of reaching an agreement.

Acting as an Independent Family Law Mediator
Las Vegas divorce mediation attorneys are independent family law mediators who are experts in family law litigation. Their extensive family law experience affords them the ability to understand the validity of each position in a divorce case. Las Vegas divorce attorneys Jennifer V. Abrams, Vincent Mayo, and Brandon Leavitt possess the expertise required to serve as independent family law mediators.
The goal of the family law mediator is to bring both parties to resolution on all outstanding divorce related issues. They are completely neutral throughout the process. They won't value the position of one spouse over the other and they won't force anyone into an agreement. Rather, the family law mediator will act as a guide and facilitate the negotiations between you and your spouse. In cases where one party has chosen to represent themselves, the mediator is likely to recommend a review by legal counsel before any agreement is signed. The mediator, however, will always remain a neutral party. They can never serve as counsel to you or your spouse.
Providing You Mediation Legal Representation
Parties entering into divorce mediation have the right to include their Las Vegas divorce lawyers in the mediation process. Your divorce mediation attorney is a critical member of your team. They will be able to educate you on the mediation process, offer guidance throughout, and provide an assessment on how your position would fare if presented at trial.
If the mediation process is successful, your attorney will be able to create all the settlement agreement documentation that is required by the family court. In cases where mediation fails, your Las Vegas mediation attorney can serve as a valuable resource throughout the trial process.

As with any settlement, concessions are made, but Jennifer completely exceeded my expectations. I feel profoundly grateful for the way I was treated and my marriage resolved."
