Married 11 years, 2 kids. We’ve amicably agreed to separate, but both of us already retained attorneys to explain the separation process. We have exchanged letters of representation.
She & I have a basic framework in place but there is a gap that we’ll need mediation help with. We’re confident that the mediator can get us to a final agreement. We’d like to do mediation without the attorneys present, to save on cost. Is this possible? We would present the agreement to our attorneys for inspection. We live in NC.
