Rockville Mediation Lawyers
Resolve Your Divorce Peacefully with Our Rockville Mediators
Divorce is considered one of the most difficult and emotionally challenging legal processes a person can experience. Many divorced spouses often wish they had avoided courtroom litigation altogether because it led to stressful and high-conflict negotiations that didn’t provide beneficial resolutions or mutually favorable divorce settlements. This is often the case when a judge is forced to make final determinations for couples who are unable to develop their own arrangements.
Mediation was designed to be an out of court alternative that keeps the divorce process as simple and amicable as possible. To start this process, couples agree to meet with a mediator in a safe space that promotes honest communication and peaceful negotiation. When successful, spouses can complete their legal objectives while effectively saving both time and money.
At McGann Hughes, one of our attorneys can serve as your mediator and guide you in developing a thorough divorce settlement. During your consultation, we can explain the process in detail and explore if mediation is your best legal option. Our primary goal is to prepare you for the next chapter of your life by establishing a comprehensive marital settlement agreement.

The Benefits of the Mediation Process
Mediation is only beneficial and successful if both spouses are active participants though each stage of the process. In divorce mediation, a neutral mediator, such as an attorney, is hired to lead divorce negotiations and ensure that both spouses develop a fair marital settlement agreement that can’t be challenged by the court. The mediator's sole purpose as a legal guide is to keep negotiations on track. It’s the spouses who are responsible for all the decision-making. This is why it’s necessary for both spouses to be present for every meeting.
Mediation settles the following divorce matters out of court:
- Asset and property division
- Spousal support
- Child support
- Child custody and visitation
- Debt allocation
Once these decisions have been made, we can prepare the written statement for you and your spouse to sign.
