Pre-Decree and Post-Decree Cases

Mediation is part of the Divorce and Family Law process. It's purpose is to enable the parties to resolve their conflict without having a judge issue a decision (ruling) over the case. 

 

parties that are planning a divorce can choose to go to mediation before filing their case with the court. Once the case or petition for divorce has been filled, the court will typically order the case to mediation. Divorce mediation normally applies, among other, to pre-decree and post-decree cases.

Pre - Decree Cases

Before a Divorce Decree - for cases in which the court has given a ruling nor issued the divorce decree.  These cases require, at a minimum, mutual decision making and agreements on:

  • Parenting Time allocated for School Schedules, Holidays, Vacations and Travel.

  • Division of Property, Assets, Debts, and Belongings 

  • Major Decision Making over Schooling, Medical and Religion

  • Medical Coverage and Extracurricular Activities and Expenses.

  • Allocation and division of Taxes

Post - Decree Cases 

After the Divorce Decree - for cases in which the court has issued a divorce decree and the parties request to modify the terms or compel the terms of the decree. These cases typically imply:

  • Modification of terms on any of the above points

  • Contempt of Court in which one of the parties believes the other is not following the court's orders or, the terms enclosed in the divorce decree. 

Family Mediation 
Key Aspects
  • It is an assisted resolution process based on the principle of informed decision-making 
  • Mediation does not impose decisions. rather it is a lawful alternative to a litigated outcome based on a court ruling.
  • The parties have control over the process; they define their own resolution based on mutual agreement.
  • The agreements reached are intentional and relevant to the parties.
Mediation provides an added advantage: For all practical matters, it is the only time in the judicial process in which the parties have a voice - The power to actively participate and express their own points of view to influence or, make a decision over the outcome of their case - In all other instances, a Judge will give a ruling (decision) as the outcome on the case.
