Experienced Mediators: The divorce mediators at the Gentry Law Firm are dedicated to helping couples resolve the issues surrounding their separation or divorce in New Mexico. Our divorce mediators and team of professionals are committed to finding the best solutions for your entire family during and after your divorce.
When you enter mediation, you and your spouse will sign an agreement stating the mediation process will be confidential in order to protect the privacy of the entire family and to encourage both parties to be forthcoming with information and offers of settlement. Mediation only works if both parties are willing to settle divorce outside of court and negotiate in good faith. If you wish to keep your divorce private and build an amicable post-divorce relationship with your ex-spouse, mediation may be right for you.
However, mediation may not be right for you if your spouse is unwilling to negotiate fairly, if there are power imbalances in your relationship of if you have doubts over your spouse’s candor. In those cases, a litigated divorce may be a better option.
Couples who decide to separate or divorce will face difficult questions. At the Gentry Law Firm our divorce mediators will help you answer questions like when each parent will have custody of the children, how property will be divided, and how each party will manage financially after divorce.
When you work with our divorce mediators, you gain more control over the outcome of your divorce. You will be able to reach an agreement that fits your family, and avoid the stress associated with testifying in court. When you avoid court, you also keep confidential family matters out of public court records.
Our divorce mediators work to save you the time and expense that adversarial divorce proceedings create. Rather than a long, drawn-out court battle, our divorce mediators help you and your former spouse work out the terms of your divorce privately, behind closed doors.
Children can benefit when their parents choose to work with a divorce mediator. Divorce mediation helps to shelter your children from the emotional effects of divorce and can teach each party how to communicate with one another after the divorce. Sitting down and choosing to work through issues without going to court is usually preferred over divorce litigation for this reason.
