The Pitfalls of Divorce Mediation
Divorce mediation, in which both spouses utilize a neutral third party in order to come to an amicable, legally binding agreement on property, support and related matters, may seem like a really great idea. The focus, however, is usually on a rush to the finish line rather than developing a divorce settlement that meets the needs of both parties.
Do not be pressured into a mediated divorce settlement that may completely fail to protect your rights and haunt you for years to come. It is in your best interest to discuss your options with the experienced divorce lawyers at Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, before entering into mediation with your spouse.

Mediators vs. Litigators in Divorce Proceedings
The complexities of divorce issues including support, custody and property can be daunting for even a seasoned litigator. Mediators are seeking agreement first and foremost, without regard to the consequences either in the short or long term. Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, has helped clients undo the damage of mishandled mediation. To be certain of a fair settlement, each party in a divorce should be advised by an attorney responsible only to them.
It is easy to be swayed by a mediator’s logical reasoning only to learn later that your rights were not protected. Every issue in your divorce should be reviewed by an attorney who has one responsibility: your best interests. If you are close to an agreement with your spouse, you may be surprised at how economical it can be to have a divorce lawyer review the issues with you and protect your rights and interests.
The North Bay divorce lawyers at Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, can help you review the following aspects of your divorce:
- Child custody and support
- Division of community property
- Spousal support
