Bristol County Mediated Divorce Attorney Discusses Interviewing a Mediator Alone
I advise clients as a Bristol County Mediated Divorce Attorney that if a lawyer meets with someone and gives them legal advice, that creates an attorney-client relationship. The only way that mediation could proceed between that party and that party’s spouse is if the spouse signed a waiver acknowledging that your spouse met with you as a lawyer and not as a mediator. This can sometimes be problematic moving forward because there’s always a little feeling that other spouse has that maybe you’re siding with the spouse that came in to see you, so I really try to make everyone feel that they’re on a level playing field if we’re going through mediation. I advise clients as a Bristol County Mediated Divorce Attorney that in order for mediation to be successful, both people have to feel like that they’ve been heard and that the issues that they were concerned about have been addressed in a fair and comprehensive way.
