Divorce mediation with a professional divorce mediation attorney in Las Vegas is a viable alternative to a litigated divorce. It is generally less expensive than a contested divorce action. Also, mediation can be a preferable way to handle any type of divorce, particularly high net-worth divorces. It can cover all the complexities of division of property, child support, spousal support, child custody and more. If both parties can sit and discuss the terms with our Las Vegas divorce mediation attorney, we can generally work out a plan for child custody, child and spousal support, and division of assets and debts. Our attorneys completely customize the plan to your situation. Mediated divorce plans have many benefits that are more favorable and less confrontational. They can come with more benefits than a typical court plan that a judge decides, particularly involving children. Remember, in the courtroom there is always a degree of uncertainty as to how the judge will rule. Mediated divorces are also confidential and sealed, which helps to ensure privacy for both parties.
We find that the divorce mediation process preserves relationships. It provides better understanding of the issues, provides custom results, favors both parties to co-parent, and is therapeutic and confidential. Our Las Vegas divorce mediation attorneys draft the paperwork at our office. That way, you can divorce without ever setting foot in a courthouse. Our skilled and knowledgeable divorce mediation attorney in Las Vegas can work with you every step of the way to ensure the divorce process goes smoothly for your family. Contact us today to find out if working with a skilled divorce mediator is right for your case.

Divorce mediation has many benefits that can make the process easier for you–and for your wallet.
John and Jane came into our office. They had decided that they didn’t want to have a judge make decisions about how they worked out custody, split their assets and made arrangements for their future lives. A judge wouldn’t know them or their children. They wanted to be in charge of the divorce and they knew a mediated divorce would save them both time and money. They also wanted privacy. The attorneys at the Steinberg Law Group created a plan with John and Jane that was quite different from a typical litigated divorce… John would take a loan against his retirement funds and pay Jane spousal support in a lump sum rather than monthly installments. Jane realized that her work and school schedule required that John sometimes have the children more than 50% of the time and she needed to work out a custom custody agreement. They sat down and discussed their divorce with one of our neutral mediators for 2 hours at a time over the course of four weeks. The settlement that they amicably negotiated satisfied them both. A mediated divorce was right for them.
