Mediation is a wonderful alternative to courtroom litigation. The parties of a dispute control the decision-making process with the assistance of a neutral party (the mediator). This post will focus on what is Family Mediation.
Family Mediation: No Court
The mediator is not a judge and will not decide the outcome, rather the mediator facilitates communication and ensures all parties respect boundaries and ground rules. Mediation allows the parties to openly discuss their concerns and possible solutions without being limited by what is “relevant” to a court of law. Mediation is often used for contract disputes or custody and visitation issues, etc.
Family Mediation: Helps Marriages too
People don't realize it, but it can be used for married couples too. It can help couples communicate and work through their issues instead of filing for divorce. Often mediation costs much less than traditional litigation. If you are looking for a mediator in your area, contact us today as we focus on all aspects of Family Mediation.
