The Role of Attorneys in Mediation
Office in Hingham & Newton, Serving the South Shore
Mediation is adaptable, and clients are free to utilize their independent attorneys as they prefer. Our Hingham mediators and family lawyers have found in our Massachusetts practice that most clients do not bring attorneys to the mediation sessions; but most do have an attorney review the divorce agreement before it is finalized and signed.
Why Engage an Attorney in Mediation?
We recommend that clients at least engage an attorney to review and consult about the final divorce agreement before it is signed. This typically would involve 2-4 hours of attorney time.
There Are a Number of Options for Attorney Involvement in Your Mediation Process:
- Neither spouse uses an attorney during the process;
- One or both spouses have an attorney review the divorce agreement before it is finalized and signed;
- One or both spouses have an attorney who advises or coaches them outside of the mediation sessions;
- One spouse has an attorney present during the mediation sessions;
- Both spouses have attorneys present during the mediation sessions.
