Mediation Is An Efficient Option For Family Law
Contested issues in divorce and other family law matters do not always need to be resolved through a judge’s ruling after a lengthy and expensive trial. When it comes to family law matters, the needs and goals of the parties are important to reaching a fair resolution. A prompt, cost-effective and fair outcome may be reached through mediation.
We believe mediation is an effective alternative to traditional courtroom litigation. Mediation can be a more practical, private and efficient means to settle your divorce, child custody or child support matter.
The Mediation Process
A mediator does not play the role of arbitrator or decision maker. Instead, a mediator facilitates resolution through a private and confidential process. A knowledgeable mediator educates the parties on the current law and provides information as to what the courts have done in similar situations. The parties meet with the mediator as often as needed to reach an agreement. After the agreement has been drafted and signed, the parties may present the agreement to a judge in probate and family court, where it is entered as a binding agreement.
If you have already reached a full or partial agreement with your spouse and/or co-parent, our experienced attorneys can help put your agreement into a document that conforms to court requirements.
