Murfreesboro Divorce Mediation Lawyer

While it may be difficult to initially think so, there are positive components to the divorce process. One of these components is the ability for your attorney to explore various strategies for achieving the most favorable result on your behalf. For some clients, negotiation or litigation is advisable while for others, some method of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation is advisable.

At our Murfreesboro, Tennessee, law firm we will identify which strategy is appropriate for your specific situation. Our divorce attorney, David L. Scott , will get to know you, your needs, your wants, your goals and your communication style to determine if mediation or some other manner of resolution is best. To speak with a lawyer and learn more about your options, send us an email or call 615-896-7656.

Divorce Mediation Attorney

In divorce mediation, you and your spouse work with a neutral third party to arrive at a divorce settlement agreement. All issues pertaining to the divorce — children, property and finances, for example — can be worked out through mediation. This method allows for you to have control over the decisions made regarding your future. Attorney David L. Scott

Rule 31 Mediation in Rutherford County

David L. Scott is a Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 Listed Family Mediator. In addition to his practice representing parties in family law matters, David L. Scott is also authorized to act as a mediator or neutral in mediations. Mediation is required in some matters and is suggested in others. Types of family law cases which must or may be mediated are:

  • Contested Divorces
  • Parentage Cases
  • Parenting Plan and Child Custody/Visitation Cases
  • Property Division Disputes
  • Post-Divorce Modification Cases

Of course, many of the types of cases listed, such as divorce, may contain multiple issues concerning child custody/visitation, child support, property division, spousal support and other issues. As a mediator, David L. Scott works with the parties to help them reach a resolution to their disputed issues which may avoid or reduce the expenses associated with litigation.

Parties represented by counsel may schedule mediation through their attorneys and should appear for mediation with their attorneys. However, you do not have to be represented by an attorney to appear at mediation. Parties may agree to attend mediation to resolve issues prior to hiring attorneys in an effort to resolve their disputes in a less-costly manner.

Since 1996, attorney David L. Scott has guided clients toward fair, favorable and enduring divorce decrees. Mediation can affect positive results now and in the years to come. When couples share a child or children, the process goes a long way in ensuring the parents are amicable toward each other and can also prove to be healthier for the children.
