In Singapore, it`s an increasingly popular option for divorcing couples to engage legal assistance from a mediation divorce lawyer. In this instance, lawyer-mediators can assist both parties because the mediator acts as a “neutral third party”.
The lawyer-mediator gives divorcing couples legal information and may even do legal analysis to help parties understand how a court would look at their particular circumstances, but draws the line at offering legal advice.
A lawyer-mediator’s job is to help couples identify issues, gather necessary information about children, property,debts, maintenance issues, and develop options for them to reach settlement that works for both of you, keeping the best interests of your family in mind.
Private Mediation stays private and confidential.When agreement is reached, the lawyer-mediator will draft a settlement agreement that is reflected when filing for an uncontested consent divorce before the Family court.
The family law solicitors of Gloria James-Civetta & Co, can help you explore a mediated solution. Our Singapore law firm provides mediator services, serving as a neutral party to help couples facilitate an out-of-court settlement.
We can also provide legal counsel to one spouse during the divorce process, (after filing for divorce) where divorcing couples, through their own lawyers will sit through a series of “without prejudice” meetings to try and come to agreement on divorce terms
