Snohomish Family Law Mediation

In Snohomish County, mediation is required in most divorce and family law-related cases, with limited exceptions. The process is designed to help parties resolve their differences without having to go through the time and expense of a trial. Some of the things we often discuss with my clients in regard to mediation include:

  • A neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates the process.
  • The parties are able to have the assistance of their attorneys during mediation.
  • The mediator does not make any decisions or issue any orders. It is up to the parties to take any suggestions that the mediator has and try to come to a resolution on their own.
  • You will be unable to go to trial in family law court if you have not gone through mediation.
  • If your case does go to trial, you will no longer have control of the process and the judge will decide such issues as property division, alimony, and child support and custody.

Even though you are in control during mediation, it is highly beneficial to have the guidance of an experienced Everett mediation team. Whether mediation works in your situation or not, our attorneys can use their knowledgeable and skilled approach to the law to serve as the strong advocates you need during the divorce process.
