Is Mediation Right For Your Family Law Dispute?

If you are engaged in a dispute regarding divorce, child custody or another family law issue, you don’t have to rely on traditional litigation. Alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation can open the door to a more amicable and cost-effective means of finding common ground.

In mediation, a neutral third-party mediator guides disputing parties toward a resolution of legal disputes. Mediation offers a number of advantages over traditional litigation, including:

  • Giving more control to the disputing parties, taking decisions out of the hands of a judge or jury
  • Typically being far less expensive than dispute that is litigated in court
  • Promoting harmony between disputing parties, rather than pitting them against each other
  • Investing parties in the success of the mediated outcome, making them less likely to revisit those issues later
