Do I Need A Lawyer For Washington Divorce Mediation?
Although mediation does not absolutely require a lawyer, it is very important to have an advocate making certain that your rights are protected and that you receive what you legally deserve. A divorce mediation lawyer can both help you negotiate the terms of your agreement and read over the final agreement to make certain that the document is complete and fair under Washington State law. During the mediation process, the mediator will act as an unbiased and neutral party – your lawyer will be on your side to answer legal questions and clarify issues as you go. Mediators often either highly encourage that each participant hire a lawyer before entering the mediation process.
