Family Law Mediation — Often A Court Requirement

Most family law courts require that parties in divorce proceedings work to mediate disputes before a trial date can be scheduled. It is in your best interests to mediate differences before entering litigation in court. Many issues can be resolved through the alternative dispute resolutions methods used in mediation, and mediation allows you to maintain control of the conversation and costs.

At Apffel Law Firm in League City, we serve clients throughout the Texas Gulf Coast and Houston areas. Attorney E. A. "Trey" Apffel III has participated in thousands of family law mediations with clients working to reach agreements on issues involving a range of complexities. He is a board-certified civil trial lawyer by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and he has over 30 years of experience resolving family law issues both in trial and out of court through mediation and negotiation.

Mediation Offers Cost-Effective, Controlled Resolutions

Would you prefer that a judge make decisions for you in an already expensive litigation process, or would you like to keep negotiations amicable while also maintaining control of how resolutions are reached?

Attorney Trey Apffel will help you make as many agreements in mediation as possible. You can control costs and outcomes in:

  • Child custody and visitation agreements
  • Child support
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Property division
  • Other family law issues

Mediation is typically less adversarial, but it is not a process that you should enter without a lawyer. Your rights and best interests are still at risk, and Trey can ensure that you do not unnecessarily relinquish any negotiating power or bargaining chips.

We are dealing with complex issues, and we will always aggressively protect your children and assets in the divorce process and post-divorce if issues arise.
