To Battle In Court or Mediate? That is the Question.
Utah Divorce Mediator and Attorney – Wasatch Front
Should I hire you to be my attorney or should we try and mediate first? This is a common question we hear every day from clients at Salcido Law Firm. In order to answer this question for yourself you need to be fully advised on the benefits and drawbacks to both of these processes. While we provide both mediation service and traditional litigation representation, only you can decide which process makes more sense to you and your family.
There are many reasons why people choose to hire a Salt Lake City divorce lawyer to represent them through the traditional divorce process in Utah. Filing for divorce and fighting for your rights in court offer many advantages not available in mediation. For instance, through the court process you can obtain immediate protection and temporary orders for such things as restraints, temporary financial support, and even attorney’s fees in some cases. Having a lawyer represent you in court helps to ensure that you will not be taken advantage of and will receive what is just. Mediation does not provide the same immediate legal protections available through a judge.
The Mediation Process in Utah
Of course the reasons why many people turn to mediation are the savings in time and money. Mediation is often a much quicker process than battling in court which can take months if not years. Mediation is also generally more affordable since you pay only for mediation fees typically charged by the hour and typically cheaper than what many attorneys charge. Mediation also allows for more flexibility, negotiation, and the keeping of relationships necessary to continue co parenting.
