When some law firms work on a family law matter, they may approach these cases the same way, every time. At The Mims Firm, P.C., we understand every one of these issues requires a personalized plan tailored to our clients' needs and wishes.

Our trial law firm features seasoned litigation attorneys who are ready and willing to advocate for your needs in court. However, if you and your spouse are able to work together effectively, our licensed mediator can pursue a more amicable approach to your dispute in southern Alabama.

What Is Mediation?

Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that allows couples to resolve their divorce in a less contentious and more cooperative manner. During mediation, an independent third party (the mediator) will focus on fostering a conversation between both spouses and their attorneys. This is a private process, and it allows spouses to begin to align on custody, support and other important issues of the divorce agreement.

It is important to note that a mediator does not have legal authority. Their purpose is to simply find points of agreement and help a couple work through any sources of conflict in a productive atmosphere.

Benefits Of Mediation

  • Affordable — Mediation tends to incur less in legal fees than when a family law dispute is litigated.
  • Efficient — Litigation can move slowly in Alabama's courts. Mediation can often allow spouses to reach a fair resolution to their divorce in a timelier manner.
  • Amicable — A prolonged, courtroom fight can create lasting divisions after the divorce is finalized. Mediation helps spouses preserve stronger relationship that can be invaluable for spouses who wish to co-parent.
