Let Us Help You Plan for the Future

The decision to end a marriage, even under the best of circumstances, is emotional. Without a doubt, it can be difficult to accept. After all, when you were planning your wedding, the future looked bright. There was no doubt that you wouldn’t be together – forever.  Yet, as time passed, you (just like many other married couples) have learned that sometimes people are better off apart than they are together.  Recognizing this is important — you both deserve to be happy.

If you and your spouse are in agreement that it is time to end your marriage and move on with your lives, you may be wondering about the best road to take. Sometimes the answer to this question can be influenced by your current relationship. Are things amicable? Can you calmly and rationally discuss your future? If you answered yes to these questions, divorce mediation may be the answer.

Why Choose Price Family Law?

We Work Hard to Protect Your Best Interests

If you and your spouse have decided it’s time to divorce and go your separate ways, you have options. In some relationships, where things have gone really wrong, animosity rules. Some couples reach a point where they can barely be in the same room together; being kind and polite are things of the past.

On the other hand, the decision to separate is significantly less contentious for many. People sometimes grow apart. Perhaps the magic that made your relationship fun and exciting is no longer there. When you recognize that you are not happy together, the decision to end your marriage makes sense.

If you elect to engage in divorce mediation, identifying the right divorce mediation lawyer is important. The right professional can help protect your future and serve as a source of information and an extra set of ears.

At Price Family Law we take our role as your Denver Mediation Lawyers seriously. We bring to the table:

We are committed to providing professional service focused on creating an appropriate environment for you and your family as you embark on a new and exciting chapter of your life.
  • Personalized Approach: While knowledge and experience are critical, and we certainly leverage them on your behalf, we are well aware that no two divorce cases are identical.

Frequently Asked Questions About Divorce Mediation

We Respond to Your Most Common Concerns

When relationships end it’s not uncommon for the parties involved to have a host of questions. Quite honestly, not every couple is even aware mediation can be an option. While many of the questions asked of us are quite specific, there are several that can be answered in a more general fashion. We have shared those, along with our responses, below.

Who should consider divorce mediation?

While not the answer for everyone, divorce mediation is an excellent choice for couples who are divorcing amicably, are in relative agreement about many things, and who do not want to go to court. Our professionals can meet with you and help you determine if this is the right avenue for your family.

Is mediation appropriate if we have children?

Absolutely, our divorce mediation lawyers have assisted countless couples iron out details relating to child support and visitation.

Keeping the details of our divorce private is important to us. Is this possible?

Yes, divorce mediation is the perfect choice for those families concerned with privacy. Colorado law protects communication that takes place during mediation ensuring confidentiality.

As a high net-worth family, our financial situation is complex. How will you fairly divide our assets?

Trista Price, our lead attorney, has extensive experience working with families like yours. She is well-versed in property valuation and division and has relationships with financial professionals to leverage when the situation demands.

We were divorced five years ago, but issues that necessitate changes to our original agreement have arisen. Can we address them in mediation, or do we need to go directly to court?

Yes, our divorce mediation lawyer can help you revise your original divorce agreement efficiently and effectively.

What happens if one of us has a concern they wish to discuss privately, is that possible?

Of course, sometimes it is easier to have a private conversation. That said, the majority of the process will involve both spouses meeting together, but we are always available to meet separately if necessary.

We hope the information shared above addresses some of your divorce mediation concerns. In order to provide more detailed responses to your questions, we need to better understand your specific situation. Reach out to us today at 720-615-1750 to schedule a free consultation.

Your Marriage Is Over – Understanding Your Options

Mediation or Court: What Should You Choose

Not all relationships last a lifetime. Often, even those picture-perfect couples who seemed destined for happiness forever find themselves at odds and unhappy in their marriage. When this happens, divorce is often the answer.

But what is the best way to officially end your marriage? You do have choices.

While some couples choose to go through the traditional divorce process in court, others have found that divorce mediation is a better option for their specific circumstances.

Family court is the setting for the trials that take place when couples are unable to agree on the conditions of their divorce. Because there are a host of issues that need to be determined (division of assets, future financial support, child visitation, and support, etc.), and because not all separations are on good terms, strong disagreements often exist. Many couples seek visitation legal help to navigate these disagreements and ensure the best outcomes for all involved.

In cases like this, each party should engage a divorce lawyer to help present their case in front of the judge.

When conflict is high, divorce court is the best place to officially end a marriage. The process is specific and controlled; the law provides avenues for compliance. However, divorce trials can be time-consuming and expensive.  While appropriate for many couples, others may find mediation more palatable.

Couples divorcing amicably and generally agreeing on how they want their lives to separately move forward, often choose divorce mediation. The process includes legal representation and a skilled mediator, it’s focused on designing an agreement agreeable to both parties. : If issues arise, especially concerning children, they might seek legal aid for visitation rights. Once complete, the couple goes to family court and has it signed by a judge.

Because this process relies on shared representation and is generally amicable, it tends to take less time and can be less expensive. It recognizes the wants and beliefs of both people and aims to find a happy medium. The ability to agree and move forward sets the stage for a calmer future – one that is certainly better when children are involved.

Should You Pursue Divorce Mediation?

Mediation is not better than a court divorce. Both options have positive attributes; choosing the right path is important.

Mediation is an appropriate choice for couples who are on the same page regarding their children (where they will live, how they will be supported) and the separation of their assets.

If your relationship ended badly and the two of you cannot bear to be together, this is likely not the best avenue for you. But, if you are mostly in agreement and looking for a quicker, calmer, means to the end – working with a Denver divorce mediation lawyer may be an ideal course of action.
