At the Law Office of David A. Kazen, we understand that divorce can be a complex and emotionally charged process. That’s why we offer mediation services as a way for clients to resolve their differences and reach a fair and mutually acceptable agreement.
Mediation is a process of dispute resolution where a neutral third party, the mediator, helps the parties reach an agreement. In divorce, mediation involves the spouses working with a mediator to identify and resolve issues such as property division, child custody and support payments.
Mediation can be a good fit for divorce cases where the parties are willing to work together to reach a resolution but may disagree on specific issues. It is particularly useful in cases where the parties want to avoid the stress and expense of litigation.
Mediation can also be beneficial in cases where there is a power imbalance between the parties, such as cases where one spouse may be more financially dependent on the other. The mediator can help ensure that both parties have a voice in the negotiations and that the agreement reached is fair and equitable.
In Texas, mediation is typically a voluntary process. Both parties must agree to participate in the mediation, and either party can choose to end the process at any time.
During mediation, the parties work with a neutral third-party mediator who helps them identify issues, communicate effectively and negotiate a settlement. The mediator does not make decisions for the parties but facilitates discussion and helps them reach an agreement.
Once the parties reach an agreement, it is usually put in writing and submitted to the court for approval. If approved, the agreement becomes a legally binding court order.

Our team is skilled at facilitating communication and helping parties reach an agreement that is fair and equitable.
