Mountain Brook, Alabama is an affluent suburb in the mountains overlooking Birmingham, Alabama. This prime location gives citizens of Mountain Brook all of the advantages of its sizable neighbor to the north, while still providing the space and small-town charm of a much smaller community. Mountain Brook has a population of 20,000 people, which makes it roughly one-tenth the size of Birmingham, but it is an amazing place to raise a family. The scenery is beautiful and Mountain Brook’s public school system is one of the best you’ll find anywhere.
Divorce is often thought of as an adversarial proceeding, but the state of Alabama encourages amicable resolution of spousal issues whenever possible. In that vein, divorce mediation is often used to resolve the issues that inevitably arise when couples decide to get a divorce. Mediation services are provided by an unbiased third-party attorney, and while mediation does not require that the parties have representation, the presence of a Mountain Brook divorce lawyer familiar with the process can give you peace of mind and valuable legal advice throughout the mediation.
Should the mediation proceedings succeed, the parties will draft and sign an agreement to that effect, and the services of an attorney are crucial to ensure that the agreement is fair and equitable so that it can be approved by the court. Should mediation prove unsuccessful, the parties will often be forced to resolve their differences in the courtroom.
