Divorce Mediation in Salt Lake City can be Helpful

If you are getting a divorce in Utah, you have to go through mediation that is regulated by the Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR, office. There are some exceptions, as you can imagine, but, for the most part, both of you have to go to at least one divorce mediation session.

You may want to hire an attorney or an expert who can help you through this process because sometimes you can be intimidated into agreeing to something that isn’t good for you if you try to do it alone. You may just need an attorney from the Brown Family Law Office to assist you because we have many years of experience in dealing with this type of situation. We aren’t afraid to help you get what is rightfully yours.

You have to pay the mediator and the split is 50/50 for both of you. If you feel that you cannot afford this, the court will take this into consideration and may offer pro bono services, or a free mediator, for you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse.

You may also feel that your case isn’t appropriate for mediation services. You can submit your reasoning to the court and if the ADR Office, court, or a court qualified mediator agree with you, the judge will allow your divorce proceeding to continue without any mediation. Some of the reasons for skipping this part of the divorce proceeding is that you and your spouse literally cannot be in the same room together without a shouting match. Also, if you feel unsafe because your spouse has been abusive in the past, this may also qualify you to skip the mediation session.
