What is 'mediation' in Texas divorce cases?
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution intended to help parties reach a settlement through a neutral third-party instead of a judge. Mediation can be voluntarily arranged by the spouses or required in response to a court order. It doesn’t typically apply to an uncontested matter.
Many Texas counties require contested parties to attend mediation prior to the final hearing. Mediation has a high success rate in resolving divorces and can help make future interactions with the other party easier. It is also less time-consuming and expensive than a contested matter. A party can try to object to mediation, but most Court’s require the parties to attempt mediation before they will assign them a trial setting.
