Camden Family Court Mediation Lawyers

Many people dread the confrontations that they associate with contested divorce. There is another, less antagonistic way to arrive at a divorce agreement. Mediation is a nonadversarial alternative method that encourages compromise and an atmosphere of calm.

Talk To Certified Mediator Carrie Tanner

Mediation often allows both parties to look one another in the eye after the agreement is completed. This is especially desirable when there are children in the picture. They want to have two parents who can work together to raise them well.

Mediation has proven useful in divorce but also in specific issues that accompany divorce — division of property, child custody and spousal support.

How Mediation Works

First, both parties have to agree on mediation. The mediator then serves as a neutral party, assisting both sides in reaching an agreement. Most people see that mediation moves quicker and at a lower cost than conventional litigation.

In the event that mediation fails, both sides must hire new legal representation before entering litigation.

Mediation is not currently mandatory in all South Carolina counties, but this may change, as courts increasingly see the efficacy of divorce mediation.
