If you’ve decided to end your marriage, you may be dreading the divorce process that’s to come. It can be stressful and overwhelming, but using a family law facilitator can lift the burdens off your shoulders. If you are looking for a way to resolve your divorce without engaging in a courtroom battle, divorce facilitation may be the route for you.
Our divorce attorney at Peak Mediation can help you and your spouse reach a solution that both parties are satisfied with.
What Does a Family Law Facilitator do?
You may not realize the other legal professions involved in family law matters, aside from lawyers and judges. There are many different legal jobs involved, including family law facilitators. Their job is to provide assistance to both parties and act as a neutral party to help participants navigate the legal system efficiently.
In a traditional divorce, the two parties will have separate attorneys working on behalf of them. During the facilitation process, the facilitator will help both the petitioner and respondent by filing the necessary paperwork and setting expectations surrounding the case. They will also provide guidance and assistance in the following ways:
Help you fill out the correct forms and documents
Provide you with legal resources
Explain legal terms
Ensure that both parties are aware of court proceedings
Provide referrals to legal services or legal aid organizations
At Peak Mediation, our facilitation process also involves mediation, which is required in Colorado. This session is beneficial since it helps resolve any issues the parties cannot agree on.
What to Expect from the Facilitation Process
Our divorce facilitator is here to help you navigate the complicated legal process with ease and address every aspect of your divorce. Even if you do not reach a full agreement, it’s an important stepping stone that will make going to court less painful.
