Advantages of Mediation
Want to save time? Try Mediation!
The courts are full of cases that could have been resolved before coming to trial if only the parties could have calmly discused their differences and worked it out.
Mediation gives them the opportunity to reach a mutually acceptable agreement without the cost and inconvienence of going to court. It also relieves our precious and limited court resources as well.
Mediation is a confidential, informal process during which an impartial third party, the mediator, assists disputing parties in reaching a mutually acceptable agreement regarding their dispute.
The mediation session is intended to identify pertinent issues, clarify any misunderstandings, explore solutions, and negotiate an agreement.
Family and divorce mediation is a process where an impartial third person, the mediator, helps people negotiate with one another to resolve issues relating to parenting time and responsibilities, child and spousal support, divorce, and the issues that arise after a divorce (assets and liabilities).
