If you are involved in a divorce or property dispute, or perhaps child custody issues post-divorce – mediation may be the way to go. Mediation will keep your case from becoming one, long courtroom battle.
Mediation is one of the most frequently used ways to negotiate a divorce settlement, for instance. This process is about you and your spouse (or other party) and a mediator. It is a method for settling issues that is beneficial to all parties.
A mediator works for neither side in an issue and does not give advice to either party involved. They are there to guide you through the gauntlet that is before you. The mediation process offers many benefits, including:
- It allows you to settle all issues at one time.
- It lets you and not the courts decide what is best for you and your family.
- The process is confidential, with no public record; and
- It is much less expensive than a trial.
You may or may not choose to have your own attorneys present to work with you and your mediator.
