Mediation is one of the many methods that individuals may use to resolve the conflicts that occur within families. Whether the issue is a family currently going through the divorce process, a couple who is struggling to figure out how to navigate the post-divorce arena, or anything in between, our firm can help provide the guidance you and your family need to work through these difficult struggles in a time and cost efficient manner.
Our mediation practice is designed to both resolve the legal issues that your family may currently face, and protect the emotional health and well-being of the family both during and after the divorce. Mediation is designed to achieve cooperative solutions during times of conflict. If your goal is to minimize animosity and openly discuss alternatives for optimal resolution, mediation could be just what you are looking for.
What does a mediator do?
In contrast with traditional litigation, mediation is an informal and flexible process, allowing those who engage in mediation to mold creative final resolutions that are in their family’s best interest, rather than be forced to accept only what the law may provide for. Mediation can achieve more cooperative and open communications, which allows for more informed and fair settlements. This can all be achieved in the comfort of a friendly office, instead of in the cold halls of your local courthouse.
During the mediation process, a mediator acts a neutral guide to both of the parties to discuss and resolve pending issues, and work toward a reasonable solution that all parties can live with. The focus of mediation is on identifying issues, discussing options to resolve those issues, and helping parties decide which options work best for them. With mediation you control your destiny, not the court system.
If you have a family law related legal issue and wish to maximize your family’s goals while minimizing the time and cost of litigation, mediation may be the best route for you and your family.
