Experienced Family Lawyers Guide an Efficient Solution

Today, many divorcing couples seek a way forward that spares them from unnecessary costs—financial, emotional, and time. For them, mediation provides a value-oriented solution. And because mediation is an out-of-court divorce process, it enables divorcing couples to negotiate a settlement on their terms. In a traditional Texas mediation, an impartial mediator facilitates negotiations, and the divorcing individuals each retain lawyers to advise them during the mediation.  

Together, the divorcing couples work to find common ground on finances, child custody, and other issues. As a result, mediation often leads to a final, mutually agreeable settlement. With trained and experienced mediators, mediation enables divorcing individuals to save precious resources for the next phase of their lives.

One Couple. One Guide.

An Efficient Divorce Option for Self-Reliant Couples

Avoiding the potential costs and complications of a courtroom divorce is a primary objective of many divorcing couples. Self-represented mediation is for couples who are committed to and willing to come to the table to work out a settlement through the mediation process with the aid of a skilled Goranson Bain Ausley mediator to guide the couple through the process of reaching a settlement. If you are among them, Goranson Bain Ausley offers self-represented mediation as an option to consider.

It is called “self-represented” mediation because a Goranson Bain Ausley attorney serves you in the role of a neutral mediator to facilitate settlement, not a lawyer to represent your personal interests. The mediator draws on specialized training to “chair” meetings between you and your spouse—guiding discussions, helping you find common ground, alerting you to potential legal issues, and suggesting options for reaching an agreement.
