Mediation is becoming, more and more, the preferred method for resolving many types of disputes. Because mediation is cost effective. Mediation saves time and money when compared to litigation.
In fact, family courts across America are turning to mediators and divorce mediation to speed up the process and help take some of the load off the system.
Avoid Litigation if you Can.
No one wants to get caught up in litigation. Courts are intimidating and impersonal, and as they should be, only interested in law and justice. Then there’s the attorneys, large retainer fees, billable hours, and a roll of the dice. Unfortunately, in all of this, fairness is lost.
There are times when a trip to the court house is unavoidable, as is the case in divorce. Even an uncontested divorce requires that all agreements be reviewed and approved by a judge.
Rather than fighting it out though attorneys, with the possibility of litigation, and the more likely result of settling, mediation just makes sense. Mediation minimizes the time spent in the legal system, and greatly reduces the frustration.
Mediation is the healthy alternative to dispute resolution and may be just what you’re looking for.
Make your own decisions. Don't leave it to the Courts.
Through mediation, individuals accomplish what they could not accomplish on their own, respectful and productive communication, which in turn knocks down the barriers to a mutually beneficial resolution.
With a certified and caring mediator, who is trained in conflict resolution, disputing parties work through their concerns to find understanding and mutual agreements. By encouraging communication in a safe and confidential atmosphere the parties can define the true issues to be confronted. A mediator is an impartial and fair third party who keeps discussions on track, makes observations, and if necessary may suggest options not yet considered. Through this very successful process, parties come to their own unique agreements for their own unique circumstances.
Because the parties make their own mutually beneficial agreements they prevent unwanted decisions from being imposed upon them by the court. They also avoid the typical anger and animosity that comes from fighting it out in court. Mediation increases the chance for civil interaction in the future.
