Time and money: The two things that almost no one has enough of. When considering divorce, one of the most pressing concerns is how to save time and money. The traditional litigation process is almost synonymous with time-consuming and expensive.

There is a possibility for a better way: Mediation.

For many divorcing couples, mediation is a streamlined process that helps them get through the divorce efficiently while protecting their financial interests in the process.

At Payne & Associates, PLLC, we help clients through the mediation process. With years of experience and attorney Jennifer Payne's certification as a Family Law Mediator, we can help protect your interests and potentially save time and money in the mediation process. We represent clients in Winston-Salem and throughout the Triad of North Carolina.

Although every case is different, mediation can be a tremendous cost and time saver due to the:

  • Backed up courts: It's no secret that the courts have too many cases to handle and not enough resources to handle them efficiently, so many divorces couples have to wait to get their divorces into the court system.
  • Additional expenses for litigation: There are additional expenses involved with traditional litigation, including increased attorney fees. With greater need for preparation and more extending time for cases to reach conclusions, traditional litigation often results in significantly higher attorney fees.
  • Scheduling: Another important time-saving factor involves the relative simplicity of scheduling mediation compared to scheduling with the courts. With less people to coordinate, it's comparatively simple and efficient to schedule a mediation.
  • Control: This is important for saving you money. A judge hearing your case may — or may not — deliver a ruling that is favorable to in terms of support, division of assets and other financial aspects. In negotiation, you at least have the opportunity to negotiate these issues.

These are just a few of the ways that mediation can save you time and money. To learn more, talk with an experienced lawyer to discuss your case.
