You are most welcome to get your lawyer along for the mediation session if you feel like doing so. All legal advice should be sought from your own lawyer**. In fact, we encourage that you should get the final draft settlement vetted from your legal counsel before signature.
**Please note that we at Seek Mediation do not provide any legal advice.
The Law Says:
“In India, Section 9 of the Family Court Act 1984, makes is it mandatory to settle a matrimonial dispute in relation to maintenance, child custody, divorces, etc., through the process of mediation. Therefore, an attempt to resolve differences through mediation is a must for all the divorcing couples to give their marriage one more chance.”
