Peter J. Herrmann realizes that not all cases can be mediated and that legal counsel may be necessary on certain issues. Unlike mediation where their is one facilitator assisting you with your divorce; litigation requires that you each have your own divorce attorney or divorce lawyer to represent you in your best interest. In this case, you will both need to retain a lawyer or attorney for your case. Please contact Peter for affordable attorney / lawyer options if your case goes to litigation.
deciding to divorce, should you use an Attorney, Lawyer, or Mediator?
begin by discussing the difference between the three professionals. An Attorney
has a license to practice law and represents their client as Power-of-Attorney
in Court when pleading or defending a case and this is referred to as
litigation. A Lawyer is a member of the legal profession who gives legal advice
and works in the legal profession to discuss legal options. A Mediator is a
neutral third party who acts as a facilitator within a private setting during a
collaborative process in an effort to discuss and resolve issues pertaining to
is much cheaper than Litigation. Attorneys for each party require a retainer
fee of several thousand dollars up front. The Attorney will take their fees out
of that retainer and once it is used up, they will ask you to replenish the retainer.
Attorneys control the process, not you! On
the other hand, Mediators work by the hour or a set fee. They keep you out
of Court and focus on resolving issues. Once all of the issues are resolved,
they write a Marital Settlement Agreement for the Court and help you with the
final paperwork for your dissolution date. You control the process, not the
the event that you do have to retain an Attorney, only contact them when
absolutely necessary. They charge you every time you make contact with them
whether it be by phone, email, text, or even written correspondence!
Complain to your friends, not your Attorney!
