Domestic & Family Mediation
We offer mediation services for domestic and family legal disputes that arise. Family disputes are emotionally charged to start with, avoiding a heated court battle can help your family during this trying time.
What is Mediation?
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process where a neutral third party helps all parties in the case to settle the issue without proceeding with a court case. The third party has not power to force a decision is all parties are not in agreement. The mediator is in charge of helping the parties to focus on key issues and exchanging information between those involved.
Why use Mediation?
There are many reasons to choose mediation over a court hearing. First, mediation is effective. It provides an opportunity for all parties to create long-term solutions for the issue at hand. That means you can decide what is best for you and those involved. You understand your situation and case better than a judge can. This means the decisions you make will be better for your family.
Not only is it effective, it is also a lot faster than proceeding with a full court hearing. Court hearings for family legal issues, such as custody hearings, can take months to resolve. This creates a more hostile atmosphere that can damage the family deeper. Mediation sessions can be scheduled within a couple of weeks and the decisions can be made. There is no need to wait for a court hearing. Along with being able to resolve the issue faster, it is also more convenient. A court hearing will be at an appointed dated and time, where mediation can be scheduled on the day and time that works best for both parties.
