Divorce mediation is a growing alternative to obtaining a divorce in court. Mediation focuses on coming to mutually agreeable solutions to questions of custody, visitation, spousal support, alimony, and other terms of a divorce. It’s a good alternative for Pennsylvania couples that want to divorce but want to do so amicably. Divorce mediation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania falls under the state’s no-fault divorce statute, which means you do not need to prove the faults of one party or the other in order to pursue a divorce.
William Kirby is a family law attorney who believes in divorce mediation. As a neutral third-party, a mediator helps couples resolve the legal, financial, and parental responsibilities of their marriage to obtain a marital settlement that both sides support. Bringing over 10 years of legal experience to his clients, Mr. Kirby can recommend a mediator who has knowledge of PA and/NJ divorce law to ensure both parties are represented fairly and in accordance with the law.
Mediation puts you in charge of the terms of your divorce. Many people don’t realize it, but by going to court to obtain a divorce, they are putting decisions that affect the rest of their lives in a judge’s hands. There is no guarantee that a divorce granted in a court of law will comply with your wishes. When you choose divorce mediation, however, you have direct input into the terms of your marital settlement.
