Houston Mediation Attorney

Expert Mediation for Harris County Families

Divorce mediation is a collaborative process where couples in Houston work towards mutually beneficial agreements before stepping into a courtroom. This approach to resolving marital disputes is particularly effective in our community, where families value privacy and personalized solutions.

In Houston, divorce mediator Yasmin Kutty serves as an impartial facilitator, helping couples navigate through:

  • Child custody and parenting plans
  • Equitable distribution of property and assets
  • Alimony and spousal maintenance

Attorney Kutty’s role is to guide both parties toward a fair settlement without representing either side. While not mandated by every court in the vicinity of Fort Bend, Harris, Montgomery, and Brazoria counties, mediation is highly recommended. Some local judges may even require mediation before a court hearing.

Yasmin Kutty, alongside her associate Melissa Pickett, holds credentials in family law mediation. To learn about our rates for half-day or full-day sessions, which can be conducted in-person or virtually via Zoom, please reach out to our Houston office.

The Mediation Process in Houston

Typically, during mediation in Houston, the involved parties remain in separate spaces. The mediator acts as a neutral conduit, facilitating negotiations without taking sides. Participation in mediation is voluntary, though it can be court-ordered. Settlement is not obligatory during mediation, and if no agreement is reached, the case may proceed to a court hearing.

Mediation sessions are flexible in duration and can be extended over multiple visits if necessary. Despite this, mediation tends to be less costly and time-consuming than traditional divorce litigation.

Advantages of Choosing Mediation in Houston

Houston families can benefit from mediation in several ways:

  • Reduced costs compared to conventional divorce proceedings
  • Expedited resolution, as the process lasts only until an agreement is reached
  • Enhanced privacy, with confidential discussions outside of public courtrooms
  • Greater autonomy, with decisions made by the couple, not imposed by a judge
  • Better communication, fostering a foundation for future cooperation
  • Higher success rates when both parties are committed to agreement

Following mediation, your mediator will draft a preliminary agreement, known as a Rule 11 Agreement in Texas, which forms the basis for your official divorce decree. This ensures that the outcome reflects your and your spouse's preferences and best interests, rather than a judge's ruling.
