Towson Divorce Lawyer To Represent You At Private Mediation

Different kinds of mediation vary in fairness and effectiveness. In my opinion, the most effective mediation is private mediation, where attorneys represent both parties. This is an effective way to resolve divorce and child custody disputes in Baltimore County. Mediation has also been integrated into the child custody court process. The Family Support Services Administrator and DCM personnel will assign mediation in contested child custody cases, as contemplated by Md. Rule 9-205, dependent on three questions:

  • Is mediation appropriate for the parties and the minor child, or is there a history of distrust, violence, and selfishness that would doom the mediation and waste court resources?
  • Is a qualified mediator available who has, at minimum, completed basic training defined in Rule 17-104 and advanced training laid out in Rule 17-106?
  • Is mediation automatically prohibited because there are bona fide allegations of physical or sexual abuse?

The Law Offices of Amar S. Weisman represent clients during the private mediation process, where the mediator shuttles back and forth between each attorney-client pair to reach an agreement. Without an attorney, clients do not understand their rights under Maryland law, the mediator's job is not to help either side understand their respective rights, and the mediation becomes a game of "let's make a deal" instead of an honest conversation among equals. We work with top Baltimore County mediators and can identify the most reasonable, practical, and experienced mediators.

Unless there has been complete financial disclosure, including all information concerning marital and non-marital property, mediation will probably be useless, fruitless, or inherently unfair. BefeTherefore, prbeforeediation, Amar S. Weisman helps each client review the mediation agreement and prepare a mediation statement to establish precise positions grounded in the facts and family law.
