Divorce Mediation Personalized & Caring Legal Representation

Mediator in Salt Lake City

Handling All Your Divorce Mediation Needs

Mediation can be an effective way to resolve a family law case. Ted has taken a basic mediation course, and he has mediated cases at the Small Claims Court in Salt Lake several years ago. Ted has found this training and experience invaluable in participating in mediations with his clients. Generally, the idea is to try and get the parties to move to the middle by understanding each other’s perspectives.

Is Divorce Mediation Required?

Before a case is ready for trial, the parties must participate in at least one mediation session in good faith. Good faith means that a party attends the mediation and genuinely tries to reach an agreement with the other party. Sometimes, parties can arrive at a partial agreement as to some issues, and then the remaining issues can be decided by a judge at trial.

The Utah State Bar has a program called Utah Dispute Resolution, which is a mediation service that is frequently used by persons of modest income. We have found UDR to be a good source to resolve cases with persons of modest means, or for that matter, any client, regardless of their finances. The mediators at UDR must be certified by the court to serve. They must also have completed a basic mediation course, understand family law, and have a certain number of hours as a mediator before being certified.

Parent-Time Disputes Mediated First

Also, the Third District Court requires the parties to mediate first if they have a dispute over parent-time before the party can bring a contempt action before the court for the other party’s failure to follow a court order.
