When Can Mediation Be Utilized In A Divorce or Other Family Law Matter?

I can help couples and parents in mediation at any point in the process. I have helped them when a case has already been filed, and their lawyers or the judge referred them to me for mediation. I can also help them before the divorce has been filed, working through all the issues with the couple/parents and preparing the necessary paperwork for them to complete the divorce.  In these cases, the couple sometimes each have counsel, and sometimes they choose to proceed without counsel.


Divorce Mediation can help couples resolve even the most complex disputes, finding resolutions for all types of family law matters, including:


  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Division of property

Hugh F. O’Donnell has been a leader in the mediation and collaborative divorce field. He has presented at many advanced mediation trainings and is a court-approved mediator in Missouri and Kansas. His continuing education training assists other judges, mediators, and family lawyers in the divorce field.


What Are the Benefits Of Divorce Mediation?


Mediation has several advantages over the traditional means of resolving family law issues through the courts. Some of those advantages include:

  • Cost and time savings
  • Keeping ultimate decision-making power in your hands rather than ceding that power to a judge
  • Reduced stress
  • In cases with children, it can help develop a paradigm of cooperation or peaceful dispute resolution that will be very beneficial as the child is being raised
  • Protecting children from unnecessary stress
