Experienced Hamilton County, IN Family Law Mediator
If you believe mediation might be the right tool for you to use in your divorce, Carol Romine can help.
Carol spent years honing her skills in the court room. Over the years she realized there was rarely a “bad guy” in a divorce hearing and most judges craft divorce orders that give both parties a few wins and few losses. As a result, she realized there must be a better way to reach a similar conclusion – minus the animosity, bickering, and expense.
She set about finding a way to settle cases outside of the courtroom and help families determine what is really important for their family. She focuses on guiding clients in determining what their common interests are and does so through formal or informal collaboration with the other party and/or other attorneys.
Her goal is to make sure the best possible outcome is reached and that all parties involved, especially the children, are able to transition into their new life feeling that the best possible decisions were made.
Hamilton County, IN Family Law Mediator Helps You Avoid the Invasive Nature of the Courtroom
Why is the courtroom a bad place to “hammer out” your divorce?
It is difficult to understand the fear and pain a child goes through when the two people she loves the most in the world fight with each other. The courtroom is designed to encourage this and to pit parents against one another.
Keeping family issues, especially those related to divorce, out of the courtroom offers many benefits. Mediation is private and allows you to discuss sensitive issues out of the public eye. It also makes it possible to create settlement arrangements that are unique to your circumstances.
When you opt to use mediation in your divorce, you remain in control of the outcome.
Pro-Se Divorce by Mediation is an option for couples who want to avoid the cost and adversarial process of hiring two attorneys. Even those who are willing to work together sometimes need help in working out the details of a divorce. This can happen in mediation.
Still not sure if mediation is right for you?
Ask yourself these three questions:
- What is my best case scenario if we go to court?
- What is my worst case scenario if we go to court?
