Annapolis Divorce Mediation Lawyers

A contested divorce can be a heart-wrenching process, and many people going through divorce would prefer to resolve their disputes with their spouses without resorting to litigation. In Maryland, mediation is one tool many people use to settle divorce cases out of court.

At the law firm of Trainor, Billman, Bennett & Milko, LLP, our Annapolis divorce mediation attorneys have the experience to guide clients through the mediation process. We serve as neutral divorce mediators, and we also represent individual clients in mediated cases.

Playing Key Roles in the Mediation Process

Mediation is a procedure in which the parties in a legal dispute meet with a neutral mediator and attempt to come to a negotiated resolution. The use of mediation is particularly common in divorce cases. Our attorneys are prepared to take either of the following roles in mediation:

  • Serving as neutral mediators: Two of our attorneys have been trained to serve as mediators, and we are frequently called upon to mediate divorce cases based on both our skill in mediation and our extensive experience in litigated divorce matters.
  • Counseling clients through mediation: We also strongly advise that parties entering mediation seek independent legal advice, and we frequently represent clients in mediation proceedings (when permitted) and advise them on their rights and options.

Mediation is increasingly ordered by the courts in contested child custody and visitation cases, and it can also be helpful on a voluntary basis for parties who are interested in settling their issues out of court but have not been able to come to full agreement on their own.
