Collaborative Law / Mediation

Tacoma Divorce Mediation Lawyers

For many families, the divorce process is not a revolving door of disputes. Many spouses are able to come to agreements with regard to property division, division of finances, custody and other matters relating to children on their own through mediation. At the Law Offices of Clayton R. Dickinson, we routinely represent clients in collaborative law/mediation involving family law matters in Tacoma and throughout Washington.

Our principal attorney has over 30 years of experience in family law. Clay Dickinson has extensive trial experience, which gives him invaluable insight into negotiating in mediation. He can also act as a divorce mediator for couples going through the mediation process.

Benefits Of Divorce Mediation

Mediation is an alternate dispute resolution where decisions are made outside the courtroom by the parties involved in the legal issue. Parties must come to an agreement on all of the legal issues involved in the case for mediation to be used. If agreements cannot be reached, then mediation may not be right for your particular case.

Mediation has a number of different benefits. In using mediation, you have more power over the decision-making process. Essentially, everything is left in your hands — not in the hands of the court. This process is confidential, and is typically faster and less costly than litigation.

You can be represented by a divorce attorney if you are mediating your divorce, but there will also be a neutral third-party mediator who works with all parties. This neutral mediator may or may not be an attorney. Our divorce mediation attorneys in Tacoma have experience advocating for clients in mediation and acting as mediators.
