What Is Mediation?
Mediation provides an alternative means of dispute settlement to lengthy litigation proceedings. Participation in mediation must be entered into voluntarily by both or all parties involved and is generally conducted in a neutral, nonthreatening environment where each party is able to effectively negotiate and reach a mutually satisfactory agreement. Mediation sessions are typically facilitated by a trained mediator who allows each party to address his or her concerns and reach an effective agreement.
How Can Mediation Help Me?
When family law issues are highly contentious, the individuals involved tend to lose control of the outcome. Lengthy courtroom proceedings increase the expenses of a divorce, and decision-making gets handed over to a judge in court.
Mediation gives individuals who are able to come to reasonable agreements the opportunity to do so without handing over control of their family law disputes to a judge. This avoids the excessive fees and time associated with courtroom proceedings, and more importantly, it allows parents to be in charge of the decisions about what is right for their family.
