5 Common Divorce Mediation Points Roswell, GA
Married Couple Not Talking to Each Other

There are many reasons why you and your spouse might choose divorce mediation instead of the legal battles in a courtroom. Not only is divorce mediation a much more cost-effective way of ending a marriage, but it also allows both parties to come to mutual agreements without court interference. While every divorce is unique, these are the five most common issues discussed in mediation.

Child Custody

The first issue discussed is usually child custody. Many divorcing parents can decide on a custody arrangement that works for both them and their children. When the court does not have to get involved, you are also able to adjust these arrangements when it is appropriate or necessary.

Current Income and Debts

Most people these days are not without debt. These debts need to be considered, especially because these debts often belong to both parties. One factor in this is the current income of both spouses. Income can also be used to arrange for alimony or child support.

Real Estate

Many couples own their own home, and this is an important mediation point when going through a divorce. Mediation can help you decide whether the property should go to one party, with the mortgage debt considered, or the home should be sold and the equity shared.

Property with Significant Value

The family home may not be the only property with significant value. Other property can include cars, recreational vehicles, jewelry or even art and coin collections. Your divorce mediator may ask for appraisals on any property that was shared in the marriage.

Future Financial Assets

There are many ways to save and invest for the future. This could be through IRAs and other retirement accounts, annuities and even pensions. Throughout a marriage, both parties usually contribute to these future financial assets, and they have planned to rely on them for retirement or even unexpected financial burdens. The value of these accounts will usually be considered as the mediation process continues.

While divorce mediation can prevent costly court proceedings that take much more time, you may still benefit from legal representation. The right divorce mediation attorney can help you understand your rights as a spouse and parent, as well as your responsibilities.

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
