Can My South Carolina Family Law Attorney Attend Divorce Mediation with Me?

At the David W. Martin Law Group, our South Carolina family lawyers know that divorce mediation is mandatory throughout the state when there are contested issues.

Mediation is a voluntary process where a neutral third party, the mediator, assists the parties in reaching a mutually acceptable resolution of their disputes. While mediation is often more informal and collaborative than litigation, having an attorney present can provide legal guidance and protect your rights and interests.

If you feel pressured to attend mediation without your attorney, here are a few crucial points to consider.

SC Family Law Attorney Attend Divorce Mediation

Mediators Cannot Offer Legal Advice: We Can.

Mediators are neutral and impartial and cannot act as advocates for either party nor can the mediator provide legal advice.

Your attorney can provide legal advice during mediation, helping you understand the implications of various decisions and proposals.

At David W. Martin Law Group, our skilled family law attorneys also:

  • Facilitate communication between you and your spouse, especially if emotions run high.
  • Guide the discussion and ensure that relevant legal issues are addressed.
  • Intervene if there are concerns about coercion or an imbalance of power or if any proposed agreements are not in your best interest.
  • Provide real-time review of any documents or proposals presented during mediation. This can be crucial in ensuring the agreements are fair and legally sound.
  • Assist you in drafting agreements to ensure they comply with South Carolina family law.

Mediation allows spouses to create an outcome guided by but not bound by state law. By designing an agreement tailored to your lives and unique situation, you can decide what is best for you and your family. We can help.
