Divorce and Mediation

David Johnson and his staff provide unique legal and personal support for people throughout East Idaho who are contemplating separation or divorce.  Mr. Johnson’s vast knowledge of family law and litigation experience and skill will guide you through this very stressful time.  Determining the right course of action is essential for protecting your family and property during this transition in your life.

Mediation

Mediation is often the simplest and least expensive way to end a marriage.  Avoiding highly charged litigation allows couples to begin a better non-married relationship.  Children are often deeply affected by how their parents handle the divorce process.  Mediation puts control into the hands of each spouse, and saves time and money.  Best of all, mediation is successful in most circumstances, especially when attempted early in the process.

Mediation can help resolve most issues that exist, including:

  • Separation Agreements
  • Grounds of Divorce
  • Custody and Visitation
  •  Child Support
  • Spousal Support and Maintenance
  • Property and Debt Division
  • Modifications, Enforcement, Contempt (of prior divorces)
  • Parental Relocation

Nearly every Judge requires the parties to mediate.  By mediating early, there really is “nothing to lose.”

Divorce Representation

Mediation may not be feasible to start with for various reasons.  The most common reason for mediation not taking place immediately is that one or both of the parties  refuses to participate.  Mr. Johnson is an active and experienced family law practitioner.  He has successfully represented clients in thousands of cases through all phases of a case, including through the Idaho Supreme Court.

Mr. Johnson looks out for his client’s best interests.  His approach is to understand each client’s expectations and how to best represent that client.  He has significant experience in settling cases, particularly with his skill and training as a certified mediator.  Mr. Johnson will stand up against the bullies you may face,  whether it be your spouse, former spouse or an aggressive attorney.  He understands that each individual, family and child are different and have specialized needs and works to customize the  resolution to fit each need.
