Google review of Kales & Kales, PLC: Divorce Mediation Lawyers by Dawn Bilodeau

The latest review of our Northern Virginia divorce mediation services: "Jonathan and Amy helped us to navigate the divorce mediation process with amazing skill and ease. And, we feel like we got a two-for-one deal being charged one hourly rate for the expertise of two mediators. Their co-mediation approach was just what we needed to facilitate effective communication and the thoughtful review of a wide variety of marital issues, including assets, finances, child custody, visitation, parenting plans, and child support. The end result was an amicable and fair, personalized divorce settlement agreement that addressed our specific needs. I would highly recommend Kales & Kales to anyone considering divorce mediation. They were great!!!" https://goo.gl/maps/8zkPxX8C9LtfKX6y8

Just as it appeared we were starting to put the coronavirus in our rearview mirror, the Delta variant has thrown a curveball to everyone, including couples seeking to divorce.

With a high percentage of Northern Virginia residents vaccinated and based on CDC guidance, many of these folks were ready to participate in the in-person meetings that are normally part of the divorce process. However, with the Delta variant has come more restrictive CDC guidance and concern about resuming in-person meetings.

With that, what can a couple who wants to divorce do? One option is to hire a Northern Virginia divorce mediator for online mediation.

Online divorce mediation can be a great option for couples who want to proceed with a divorce despite the obstacles presented by COVID-19. There are even some advantages that are unrelated to the pandemic.

YOU SETTLED ON ATTORNEY-LED DIVORCE MEDIATION. NOW WHAT? TIME TO SEARCH FOR A “DIVORCE MEDIATION LAWYER NEAR ME”? - Kales & Kales, PLC

YOU SETTLED ON ATTORNEY-LED DIVORCE MEDIATION. NOW WHAT?

After doing your due diligence, you and your spouse have decided to pursue a Northern Virginia divorce through mediation. The first thing you should do is pat yourself on the back as you have made a very good decision amid the process of reaching the very difficult decision to end your marriage.

Mediation avoids the high emotional and financial costs of traditional litigation and puts you and your spouse in the driver’s seat. Mediation allows you and your spouse to work out, in a safe environment and with the help of your mediator(s), the details of your settlement: What will happen with your property and any debts you may have? What will your parenting plan look like? How will your child’s medical and other expenses be handled? Will there be spousal support? If so, what are the details regarding that? Before working out the details of the settlement, however, it is a good idea to understand the role of your mediator. What can your mediator do? And, just as importantly, what is your mediator not permitted to do?

HOW TO CHOOSE A QUALIFIED VIRGINIA DIVORCE MEDIATOR?

If you’ve picked mediation as the way to settle your divorce case, how do you choose a qualified mediator?

1. Certification. Is the mediator certified by the Virginia Supreme Court? If not, you could wind up with an untrained mediator, as Virginia has no educational and proficiency requirements for a person to hold him or herself out as a mediator. A directory of Virginia certified mediators can be found at www.courts.state.va.us.

2. Virginia Family Law Attorney. Is the mediator a Virginia divorce lawyer? Even if a mediator is certified by the Virginia Supreme Court, he or she may not be a Virginia family law attorney and have the knowledge of Virginia divorce law that goes with that, as a person is only required to have a bachelor’s degree to become certified. You should ask any mediator you are considering hiring: (1) Are they an attorney? (2) Are they a member of the Virginia State Bar? (3) If the answer is yes to the first two questions, is their practice dedicated exclusively to family law?

3. Experience. How many cases has the mediator actually mediated? Even if a person is a Virginia Supreme Court certified family mediator and a Virginia divorce lawyer, he or she may not have a great deal of experience mediating actual cases. You should ask him or her how many cases they’ve mediated. Most experienced mediators won’t know the actual number, but they should be able to ballpark this for you.

Kales & Kales’ divorce mediation services remain available during the coronavirus pandemic. We mediate online via Zoom for ALL Virginia courts and counties. You and your spouse are not required to meet with us in-person. If you have a computer, tablet, or smartphone, we can mediate your settlement online. If you need a Fairfax or Arlington County divorce mediation attorney, Tysons Corner divorce mediator, or divorce mediation in Falls Church or anywhere else in Virginia, we are as close to you as your preferred device.

When you contact us, we can compare calendars and schedule a Zoom mediation session. A typical session lasts 2-3 hours, although there is no minimum time.

These videoconference sessions permit us to view each other and share documents in real-time. Additionally, you can see our notes as we take them. After each mediation session, we’ll forward you a copy of our notes.

Once you reach an agreement in principle, we usually can forward you a divorce settlement agreement (AKA Marital Settlement Agreement, Separation Agreement, or Property Settlement Agreement) within 1-2 weeks

With your input, we’ll then generate a final version of your Marital Settlement Agreement and provide you with guidance about how to get your Agreement through the court system.

While we look forward to meeting with clients in-person again when COVID-19 is in our review mirror, we’ve actually discovered some real advantages to online divorce mediation and intend to continue to offer this service as an option permanently. https://www.kaleslaw.com/family-law-services/fairfax-va-divorce-mediators/

7 Divorce Mediation Myths - Kales & Kales, PLC

7 Divorce Mediation Myths

Divorce is often seen as an all-out fight between two separating spouses. Couples fight over practically everything, as they literally split much of the life they built together right down the middle. Everything from assets to children is up for grabs. Often times, the ensuing court battle leaves a foul taste in everyone’s mouth when everything is said and done.

However, there’s an alternative path to the grueling process of dragging a divorce through court. Divorce mediation has proven to be an effective way for couples to resolve many of their issues while saving them time, money and stress. It’s a mediator’s job to sit down with a couple and facilitate a discussion that leads to the drafting of a settlement agreement that covers all of the terms of a divorce.

Unfortunately, over the years, certain myths have become associated with divorce mediation. Here are seven of those myths and the facts that dispel them: https://www.kaleslaw.com/7-divorce-mediation-myths/

Our Story

Kales & Kales is a family law practice dedicated to helping clients reach divorce settlements. Some of these resolutions are reached via Divorce Mediation or the Collaborative Process. Others are reached via traditional, attorney-to-attorney negotiations. Still others are reached via our flat fee, uncontested divorce program. After practicing family law for years and concluding litigation serves divorcing spouses poorly, making already difficult situations harder and more painful, we strive to provide our clients with the support necessary to reach the best resolutions for themselves and their families, compassionately, individually, holistically, and efficiently.

Kales & Kales, PLC was founded in 2004 by the husband and wife legal team of Jonathan and Amy Kales, settlement oriented, highly experienced family law attorneys who are committed to achieving optimal results for their clients. Both Jonathan and Amy are Northern Virginia natives, where they live with their 3 children, Jack, Noah, and Lily, and are active in and love their community. Recently, Jonathan was named a member of Virginia's Legal Elite in the area of alternative dispute resolution by Virginia Business Magazine and to the Virginia Super Lawyers list for his work in family law.
