If you’ve decided that mediation is the course of action you and your spouse want to take for your divorce, you may want to consult with an attorney before or during mediation. Because the need and desire to want to consult with a legal professional regarding the terms of mediation is so high, many divorce lawyers are also mediators. In this blog, we discuss the importance of receiving legal guidance from a lawyer before your mediation.
Evaluate Your Legal Options
If you’re in the beginning stages of your divorce, you may not fully understand your options. You may be preparing yourself for one type of divorce before realizing that mediation is a better option for you and your spouse. At O’Sullivan Law Group, our mediation group has the resources for clients to make the best decisions for their future.
Predict Outcomes and Costs
When it comes to the cost of your divorce mediation, you want to avoid financial surprises. To get a realistic estimate of the cost of mediation, you’ll want to speak to a legal professional who has enough experience with mediation that he or she is able to give you ballpark figure of what to expect in terms of price.

There is a high volume of paper work involved with the divorce process, and while mediation simplifies the process, there is still some paperwork that will need to be completed.
